    In my experience, there is a high degree of correlation betweeen respect, dignity and money. What I've noticed is that a low-wage job (<$50K) generally corresponds to a low-status job, and lack of respect. As my wages went up, the amount of autonomy, responsibility and respect also went up, even doing the same work, but at different companies.

    In the work world, money = respect, and if you're getting clerical wages (<$40K) you'll probably be getting clerical respect i.e. very little.

    My experience is that if you get on with the people and they like you and you like them then be very very careful before you move on from it. Generally if they like you they will look after you. All you have to do is to get your head down, dont worry about politics etc and do the work.

    I did not follow that advice and moved out of a really good team and i was absolutely 100% miserable where I went. I so regret it - so that is my contribution. Sue
