My company stopped all of the perks a while ago, except we got to keep popcorn. If you need a PC monitor, you have to beg and be happy if its replaced with the cheapest 19inch they can find.

I just went by a Project Managers desk and saw he had a 27 inch monitor. i asked him how he got it. He smirked and said "lots of hard work".

I'm an engineer that is delivering a service for a customer and actually produces income for the company. This guys is straight over head and he does not even do any real work. He gets the monitor. No wonder this country is in trouble.

If I was an electronics engineer and someone called me to fix a lamp, I wouldn't bother. It's not like that doing a favor or two will make your professionalism fly out of the window.

But if I was in that pathologist's shoes and I was *pernamently* assigned to do menial jobs, I would quit the next day someone offered me another job.

Too close to truth to be funny, but it's thought-provoking. In India, very highly qualified technical and scientific personnel are often ordered to do menial jobs. For example, I have seen (some 40 years ago) an MD (pathologist) in a serum manufacturing unit assigned the daily job of weighing the grass brought by farmers to feed horses of the institute. In another institute, an electronics engineer (PhD) was called by the boss to fix a light-switch that wasn't working. There are no protests, and people actually like to do such work.
