The boss is nice, not working you to the bitter end and understanding where you’re coming from. The building is beautiful. Every inch of every floor, ceiling, wall, desk and chair is clean enough to eat off of. You’d rather spend time in the office, cubicle, or whatever room you want to work in than in your living room. The bathrooms are better. The pay is phenomenal and the benefits are even better.

Have you ever thought about what it might take to get that kind of job?
