A Different World

Cow has another interview coming up...and a chat with a company about their benefit package left her jaw on the floor.

Cow expressed some misgivings about selling her house....not to worry, this company buys the house from you after averaging together two appraisals. Then they pay you a percentage of the selling price as a bonus, pay your moving expenses including packing, pay all closing fees and realtor commissions on your new house...plus then they pay you to work there.

Cow may not get this job, it is stepping outside her little area a trifle. But hearing these benefits made her think she should have checked far pastures sooner for their greenliness.

And, to update Cow's faithful readers: Cow turned down one job, was turned down for one, is still pending on two and as for the non-English-as-a-native-language folks who attempted to get her transferred to their team: they were shot down ignominiously.

That's life in the Land of Topiary. Moo!

That's phenomenal, cow. If that's the benefits they offer to get you there, I can't imagine what incentive they use to keep you there.

W.O.W.

That's very impressive. I've certainly never worked for a company that would go that far!

Ms Cow must have many transferable skills! I expect they have a good pension plan too.

Cow is excited too and spending the next 5 days before the interview madly reviewing certain aspects of chemistry to be ready for questions.

As far as working for a Fortune 500 company:

W.O.W. definitely spells out the financial aspect.

But then the niggling doubt, as per Bear Stearns and Enron: employees who put in 90-hour weeks, rewarded with company stock, now worth: zip.

Must post on this...

Moo!

WOW still prevails.

You could easily be doing 90-hour weeks in a public library, be paid for 35 of them and get nada recognition or bonus regardless of the performance of the organisation.

You're obviously presenting well on the skills front!
