  No judgement mind you; more a passive observation, but you seem to thrill in feeding the monster which is eating you alive. Maybe focus on things you can do or change might make you feel a little more in control. Just a soft care package from a friend...

Good on ya for that customer / patient satisfaction rating !!

One of the things my Dad told me when I was growing up was that you negotiate hard when you get a job for a good starting salary.  More often than not, that's pretty much where you're gonna stay, despite all the promises.  Want a real raise ?  You're gonna have to leave and restart somewhere else.  Rinse and repeat.  He was pretty much spot on from what I have seen.

One half of my brain is really miserable and angry, since I fixed a systems problem in 2009 that made our clients much happier and saved the company $5M/yr in operating costs.
Now, the new leaders are asking me to recreate that failed mechanism because of political pressure. I've met with them repeatedly but they're already on the train there, and I can't get them to leap off. It's a huge blunder, and I have practical experience and a lot of background data to prove it's a blunder. Basically, we'd be recreating the lines of the DMV - but wouldn't you rather have an appointment there instead of waiting? They insist it'll be different, but it's really a lack of vision; they're implementing someone else's idea thinking it'll be successful here. It'll take about two years for it to happen.

But the other half of my brain is ecstatic. I got some data back that cements in a personnel decision that could've gone either way. With hard data backing me up, it's a lot less able for them to contend that it's my personal decision and more of "here are the hard facts." So that's a big burden lifted. All I have to do now is step through the motions, but there's no more thinking/judgement involved.

And my little reptilian brain is even happier. For the last twenty years I've been a leader in client satisfaction with scores in the 90+% range consistently for as far back as the surveys have been done. But, this quarter, I beat my old standards: For the N=21 surveys sent this last quarter, I scored 100% satisfaction in every single measure. I've never seen that with me or any of the people I supervise. I suppose the only next step is retirement - coming up in about 18 months. (Get good at something and then it's time to abandon it...) 

 
Retirement is tough but there are few here that will help you as you struggle to learn do nothingness.{#Meditate}

When the deal goes down, it will be in two years. At that point, I will be showing them two things: my left butt cheek and my right butt cheek as I head off to retirement. Unless I'm getting paid, I'm not working any more. I just found out that, after 30 years, my salary is barely above the starting one.
