Let’s talk about our jobs. I am an inpatient Hospitalist. Internal Medicine.
A few days ago , I was reading a Reddit thread about how the only way to move forward in this corporate world is , to seek horizontal growth.
I know my group’s personal example. After 12 years of working like a dog and doing every administrative work for free, my colleague got recognized and finally started getting paid equal to what we make already. And her new title doesn’t give her a raise, just gives her a reduction in clinical time.
There is nothing known as corporate loyalty, we all are replaceable. Learn what you can in one company and leave. People gave examples of how they doubled thier salaries in 5 years by hopping jobs. Just by finding someone who will pay you more than your current employer for the same work.
Don’t be a hard worker. Be a smart worker. Do what’s barely legally mandatory and then some. If you keep on doing extra work, administration will think “oh well, the work is already getting done, what’s the point of hiring a new person”, and before you know , that one time favor becomes the norm, and now you have a new box to check and a new button to click.
Do you think these rules apply to us doctors too ?
