So the "news" that needed to be shared at that staff meeting I mentioned in my last post was that yes, we are getting busier, but no, clients still aren't ready to start real, profitable projects, so now it's time to work your butt off so we don't lose the standing we have, but you won't be compensated for it.
Yes I know this is a good problem to have, but honestly, it's a problem nonetheless. We always hear in the news about the jobless rates, but we don't know how many people are underemployed. I'd personally like to know what it's doing to everyone's morale. In the meantime, I'll keep telling myself that this won't be forever and it will get better eventually.
