Out of time

This will likely be the last speedy I'm going to do on office time for a while. Our department just caught wind of the new schedule and it is less than intelligently derived.

I love the kind of work that we do but how things are done on the "blunt end" of the spear leave me feeling like our department is going to lose it's head like the goose that laid the golden eggs. We keep exceeding expectations on our performance and instead of being rewarded for it they take our extra effort for granted and just consider it our 'latest benchmark'.

There is such a thing as doing "too good a job".

Yes, it's a privilege to be able to work in concept art so early in our careers, but I'm getting pretty tired of us and ours being worked like dogs for what others doing the same job in this industry might call fruit and nuts.

It's a give and take relationship; We give, they take. We'll see if we get what we were promised.
