What do you really do?

I'm a refinery worker without a college degree that worked hard enough to climb the ladder into a management roll. I manage direct reports and give guidance on business strategy year to year.

I'm curious what the apple/airbnb/netflix/quora/tech employees do? Your TC is most higher than what I typically see in the oil and gas business.

  • I thought some oil and gas positions, like land managers, put tech TC to shame?

      Maybe? At my level there are no RSUs, no bonuses, just straight base compensation. Pay is 130k-180k at my levels

    I get paid to think about new projects that can make my company more money. Taking these projects apart and breaking them into manageable chunks. Assigning it to appropriate teams / people. And keep periodic tabs on them to ensure completion and quality.

      Just start writing down things that frustrate you. Write down solutions to those frustrations. Eventually you will land on something that frustrates many others. Take the solution to this and build it.

      The best products solve a pain point.

      Actually got this job partly because I was solving the problems that frustrated me...Then ended up with problems that are people related, aka not that solvable, lol now I work 45+ h/week... Definitely went wrong somewhere along the line haha
