    interesting job, but fix the broken workplace.

    My job is really my hobby. Sometimes it sidetracks me from my real goal of observing people.

    I think I'd rather take the interesting job, but 10 years seems like too much at this moment.

    Voted tedious job, positive workplace.

    My hope would be that I could do interesting things outside of work to keep myself from being bored. I know an interesting job would be ideal, but I also know the stress of being in a negative environment would wear me down and make the job less interesting and more of a chore. At least if I'm doing boring stuff, I can like the folks I work with enough to talk with them and keep myself entertained socially.

    If I had to choose.. give me the most boring and tedious work imaginable, but also give me the flexibility I want and good people to work with, and I'll do your stupid dumb work.

    Otherwise.. ten years!?

    I don't think I'd last too long in either. Longer, I suppose, in a tedious/positive job, but it definitely wouldn't hold my interest longer than maybe two years.

    ditto with this. lol

    but being currently in a sucky job with zero-passion in it, and also no matter how 'interesting' i could have flexibility in just browsing around in Internet here, i think i would rather be in an interesting job in a negative workplace, rather than the vice versa.
    because like some people said here, i can pretty much stand it, or 'shutting myself' from the bad environment. but to shut myself off from very terrible boring job while keep pretending or faking smiles to nice people surrounding me? that would still be in conflict with my Values, and i don't think i can stand it for 1 year, heck , even for 4 months!

    and TEN years in a sucky job?? .. well, now i'm already entering the 6th-year in this sucky job, and now I even already vowed that I really NEED to get out from this job THIS year, because i don't think i can stand another year, let alone another 4years here!
