Comments: I'm Just Not Corporate Material

I totally here what you are saying but here is where your logic breaks down. The people who get their dream job doing really cool stuff are often the same people who know how to take credit for what they have done. They get recognized for this and that gives them more options to do what they really want to do. If you take the "I'm not going to play your game" approach you are more likely to be stuck at the lower levels where your options are more limited. It sounds like you're saying "I don't want to play your stupid game, but I want more money and a cool job". Well, guess what, the ones who get the cool jobs or start their own companies are usually the ones who are experts at playing the game and drawing attention to themselves as really good at what they do. The next guy to get the cool job at Maxim will be a cocky jerk who knows how to make himself look good who happens to be a good writer.
