in thread Climbing the corporate ladder

While there are definitely many "corporate welfare roles" out there, they are not the ones I'm looking for and pursuing. The biggest advantage I know of for working for a corporation is that they often have resources I probably would not have as an independent. I'm talking about things such as oracle licenses, "enterprise" apps such as ERP, CRM, etc that require large amounts of cash to purchase.

There are advantages and disadvantages to both sides of the coin and IMHO it's unfair to lump all corporate jobs into "welfare". I don't want to be poor & living paycheck-to-paycheck. I have a wife and child that I have to think about, and they need stability. Ever priced a family health insurance plan? Want corporate contributions to your retirement? My point is simply that corporate jobs aren't all bad.
