Do what you feel in your heart to be right, for you’ll be criticized for it anyway.”Eleanor Roosevelt
Compensation is the perfect blend of numbers and people. That’s why I like it so much. I get to spend as much time as I want buried inside of an Excel spreadsheet, but at the end of the day, it’s about people and their individual contributions to an organization’s success.
