You find books you never know were out, you get the head start on release dates.
It is difficult to put in words.. but when I started 17 years ago, I really loved books, graphic novels, basically reading in general. The work was hard, but you gained experience. I really can't say much on management.. The workplace culture.. to me, first hand and has been, I'm 'out'. When I say that, I'm generally meaning, that I don't feel welcomed at all. Because I'm not from the same town as they were, I am an outsider. I am 'me', but to them, I'm 'not wanted'. I personally don't care, but I wish I was heard and welcomed at least to have a say in things..
I believe the hardest thing about the job, is leaving after a day's work if you've completed everything. I think the most enjoyable thing for me, for as long as I've been there, is being left alone to your own devices.
Favoritism, Cliches, Never in one place.
