Excerpts: Who Are "They" Anyway - Part V

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 4:32 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Now, dont get me wrong
      I like my job.
And the organizations
      not bad,
            as organizations go.
I like the people here,
      some are really great,
and the members of my team,
      well, we get along OK.
But, its so hard
to deal with problems sometimes
And worse yet,
      its impossible to try
      to change anything,
because they wont let us
      they wont approve it
            they say the economy is iffy
            so better not take a risk.
