'Bitter' is the word used by those who are willing to accept responsibility for their actions.

Are you actually retarded? wtf are you rambling about exactly? What actions do you accuse gamelan of not taking responsibility for?

I think there is nothing wrong with wanting to find a job/career that you love or that gives you work/life balance. I know that plenty of people are out of work, but I don't buy into the whole everyone hates their job, so live with it excuse. To me, those are people who never tried to find a dream job or career, but got a job somwhere because they had to.

All these people go to college and university for education in areas that they are not even remotely passionate about and then they wonder why they hate their job. You got to do what you love.

Tell that to the thousands of people in NYC making not six figures. Quit being a prick.

Lol. I apologize. I have indeed been fortunate thus far in my life and I appreciate everything I have.

OP, start looking for a new job. In the mean time, focus on doing the best possible work you can and start networking.

Tips on where to start networking? I've asked a couple of friends. For me, I don't mind putting in the long hours as long as I'm compensated equally (I'm not even thinking six figures for long hours... more like... 50k-ish). I am planning on getting an MBA.

I'd really like to start a career in consulting. I have a couple of connections, but they tell me to get some business experience first before they can hook me up. I don't think I can survive more than 1 year this rate though.

Don't get an MBA unless its from a top-ten school. Too many MBAs out there.

Negative lessons are the best lessons. Plus, logging time in the trenches will build up goodwill/karma/office street cred, so when it is time to move to a better job, you'll have some support, and a good word or two. A$$holes or work-shirkers may seem to climb faster and have an easier time of it, but they generally hit a ceiling and their backs sprout knives not long afterwards.
