Do they just think the rest of the world should find them more important, or something? I will say, tenured professors in any field are one of the dourest, most sullen lots I've ever encountered, but getting tenure at an Ivy would seem to clearly qualify as having "made it." To me, it seems that many of these people are determined to see a glass as 5% empty, rather than 95% full. Sheesh.
    That about sums it up. Also, at a place like Harvard, there a multiple Nobel laureates attending the faculty meetings reminding you that even though from the outside looking in, you are one of the best in the world, you are still second tier in your home department. The administration likes two kinds of faculty best, famous big deals that up their prestige and nose to the grindstone producers who get lots of grants. The majority of Harvard faculty is neither.

    The hubby was the 2nd type. That kind of professor is appreciated by the administration but vulnerable to getting screwed over, mostly by other faculty.

    Ideal hours per week and days per week to work if you had complete control?

    Depends on if itís fun travel.


    I had a travel schedule I did NOT like and it felt like every minute preparing, in transit, and at the inevitable colleague dinner was a fresh Dilbert hellscape.

    I love traveling. I usually go to dinner alone and I LOVE it.

    I like four tens in some circumstances, depending on the job.

    I've worked 4 9s and a half day which I liked. Being forced to get up and going on Fridays meant that I was ready to take on the rest of the afternoon.

    I've worked four 12s(days), 4 off, 4 12s(night), 4 off, repeat. The nights are not easy. But those 4 days off are awesome.

    I like time where the rest of the world is busy and I have the time off.

    I don't do enough cooking with ground turkey. And probably too much with ground pork.

    I like to travel alone and have done so a lot in my life on a personal basis. I do not like going to the same Hilton Garden Inns in Des Moines and Indianapolis week-after-week and going to the same 4 restaurants with the same colleagues and then meeting in the same stale foyer to drink the same crappy coffee to go to the same office. Flip side, every once in a while, they let the rank and file book passage on the corporate jet when the execs weren't on it. That was cool.

    So, 40 hours/week, regardless?

    What did you do that was 12 hour nights? That sounds medical. I thought you worked in insurance.
