She works for the emotional and time benefits she gets, not for anything material.

My point was that sure she works for money. What I also think she enjoys is a challenge. She knew going into this that trying to turn the company around would be a monumental project for her and her team. But she chose to do so anyways.

You're not the only one. I'm a problem solver, the material benefits whilst nice, are irrelavent to getting a problem to solve and make things run smoothly. Althought we're usually relegated to the bottom rung of the ladder because we don't even desire advancement and rarely want to remove ourselves from the core problems ... that and we all know industries are based on "Who you know" wink.gif

I certainly hope they can get their heads out of their Collective asses because they need a swift boot right about now.

I was being sarcastic, I guess text doesn't easily translate that. I don't enjoy a big challenge unless I'm given an equally big reason to go through with it. That reason is money. I can't understand how it's different for anyone, Lisa Su has a huge challenge ahead of her - therefore her pay is high. Sounds reasonable in my head, I don't know about you guys, whatever floats your boat I guess.
