I was forced out at 50 after 20 years with 3 different companies. Fired. I had your standard award and numbers profile. Just to old. It took a long time to get back on my feet. The cost was substantial finacially, physically and emotionally. Everyday I dreaded waking up, but got caught up on the "average money". Plumbers and electricians make more and live better lives. What I find a amazing is: the weakest of my teams are still in the business and at levels they are not close to being qualified for. VPs, regional managers, ect. Pharma, were the weakest and sneakiest flourish. Additionally, I have not been on CP for years. This site has very few current entries. Most are from 2012-2020. It was a soul sucking job that I had to lie to myself daily to survive. Dear God, I am glad it's over.
