The inane mandatory conference call where the 1st 10 minutes were role call - these calls were scheduled at home office convience - so it was either 6am Pac. time or when I needed to be working with my reps - I would often wonder what was discussed and why shortly after the calls were over. We also had to put together weekly spreadsheets that we(RMs) knew no-one was reading - but if you sent it in got dinged. We had week long meetings that had 2 days content.
We always did our own reviews - and then had to re-do them until it was met with is a amazing that I thought all of this was normal for so many years!

Freed at 49. You only live once - live it

Hey, just tell me the desired outcome and I'll work to make it happen, but I can't work for five different bosses, each with a different agenda...
Been there, done that. OMG. I'm so glad to be old and unemployable.
