if you want to learn and feel that your job means something to somebody i suggest dont work for a drug company at least the one i work for. I have never missed actual field work so much. refrigeration and hvac in my opinion and maybe yours too is the tip top of the trades food chain and at this company they cater to the sparkys who only change lightbulbs and the so called hvac group that only changes filters on airhandlers, but when something actually needs to be fixed they call refrigeration. this drug company is like bizzaro world where the butt kissers and bullsh*tters get ahead and people who make every attempt to stay on top of their trade get the shaft I know it is like this at a lot of places but not to this extent. is it different at any other corporations? I love fixing things just not where i am at when i took this job i looked at all benifits except the ultimate benefit of will i be happy. if your young and want to be great at your trade steer clear of drug companys at least the one i work at here in illinois. sorry for the rant, and bad spelling.

I also work maintenance in a large corp. Mine is an airline. At a service company the core objective is to service equipment and you are concidered a vehicle to make money for your boss. At a corporation who makes drugs or flies people around or makes wigits you are concidered a cost to the bizz. that they are always looking to reduce. I've worked in the field for contractors and for a corp. and even though the corp. has no respect for me , I take the money and bennies and live my life happily. I don't need pats on the back from a boss. What also helps me is I run a small one man show on the side. I can't speak for your job but at mine no repair reaches my boss for aproval. I just trouble shoot, go get the parts I need and fix the equipment, and fix it and ask for permission later. If you make a good buck and bennies, find another means of happiness. No job is perfect. As I get older I'm seeing more and more that the hiarchy in the trades is only in the mind of the tradesman. The rest of the world thinks ALL trades people are cavemen. Get into management.
