Retirement is better.  When you get tenure, they stack more meetings on you.  Those go away in retirement.

 

 

I have to disagree.  For those of us who have worked over forty years at a job and _still_ run the terrifying daily risk of getting fired at any moment for reasons completely beyond our control, tenure is the most ass-kicking thing there is, period.

It's breaking down now, as the business types capture university administrations and start firing the most expensive non-administrators (but they never cut themselves, and administrators are paid 12 months a year, not 9), who are the long-term tenured faculty. 

 

I understand the attraction, but that is evolving away.

I'd like to say "that sucks."

 

Actually, I _will_ say that sucks, because that sucks.

 

But it's really the only thing the vast majority of us have ever known anyway, so I'll just say "welcome aboard."

 

 

The go be sad for both of us for a bit.  :(

My moms technical college recently upgraded to college. I asked her if she was going to get tenure now, as she's been a math instructor so long. She laughed and said her school wasn't even toying with tenure for anyone.

I don't feel sorry for him if he couldn't swing any royalties from the 8-10 movies he's been in...fire your management now and get Downey's agent asap.
