Work Was`What I Made It..
Premises Tech/ General Consultant Troubleshooter (Current Employee), Compton, CAOctober 21, 2014
Pros: worked for myself, helped people everyday, became a positive influence in my community.
Cons: didnt often have the tools, or monetary expenses to maintain my business related materials and resources...
I Love Working in the technological field, but sometimes the payoff isn't swell, and in fact, I've found that Working For Myself takes A lot More than the Resources I had Provided Myself with. And that it Takes Money to Make Money. However I Love Technology, And Will Move forward right alongside it!

Mobile App Development (Former Employee), MassachussettsApril 13, 2014
Pros: independance
Cons: pay
Working on my own app to sell on the market was an exciting prospect. I learned how to read documentation effectively and about responding to criticism on my product. The hardest part of this job was the complexity of the algorithm I implemented. The most enjoyable part of this job was the feeling of independence.

Cons: work is not always steady, sometimes it's a hassle getting paid what you want, and being taken advantage of
As a laborer I have learned how to work well with people from every culture and background. On a typical job I would ask to do most of the work if I have seen it done at least a few times. However, if I was on a job and I haven't seen it done, then, I would watch and make sure that the other guy had what he needed to do the job. I often ask many questions – more... until I get the hang of it. The best part of being a laborer is when I do most of the technical work myself. – less
