Total disconnection in a large company

HR is an interesting business, here's how I see it (fails to) work:

Client: Your consultant X is fantastic, he's a legend.
Team Lead: He's an asset to the company.

Performance Review: Fantastic but there's room to grow.

Salary Review: Here's your below market average salary raise.


I'm at a stage in my life where choices are hard, and I think it will only get harder as I go.  I have a bit of money saved up.  The industry is nearing its peak.  I think it is time to take the dive and run my own business.

I vote with my feet.

Good bye!  Thanks for all the fish.
