I can relate to where you are coming from when you say that self-reliance is better than group; both in real life and virtual. I used to work in a situation where the work that I did determined the rewards I would enjoy, or failures I would have to endure. Last year I traded that for a group situation where the actions of a co-worker now directly affect me because the money was more stable. Looking back on the last year, I can't say that I made the right decision for me, but I know I made the right decision for my family, and even though I work with lots of people that I would consider to be "C" team individuals, the couple of B and A team employees here-including the owner- have recognized my abilities and I have been rewarded; maybe not as much as I would have been working for myself, but there is allot less work now.
I guess my situation is allot like being in a guild: there are a few great officers, twice as many average members, and a few people that I help out because they are unable to help themselves. I think you made the right choice if you chose to stick with the A team because at least with them, you will have the chance to stand out because you deserve it, and not because you were loyal.


I hear ya, Wolf. Lifestyle and monetary choices must be heavily weighed against personality preferences. A couple of people in the same situation as I'm in, elected the "A" player "C" team because they wanted to spend more time with their families - cut down on travel and work less hours.

I figure I only have a few good years left; not feeling too jaded and tired of making that climb, so I might as well go balls-to-the-wall one more time and see how it pans out. :-)
