What Work Does

Many things, if you think about it.

And this is especially so at the start of a career as certain work environments foster certain attributes none of which are bad in themselves.

For example, relationship management roles tend demand more thought to the end state of the customer, investment businesses foster a certain level of aggression and zero tolerance for error, with operations instilling an appreciation for detail.

Thing is, these attributes have advantages, but when taken to excess they create narrow minded executives. Needless to say, the big picture is always important.

Therefore choose where you work carefully, and where the choice presents itself, choose a better work environment over better pay.
