    I am paid well for where I live, and my managers generally trust me enough to leave me alone and let me do my job. These are the only things I like about my job right now.

    It's the most wonderful time of the year. Too bad you have to wait almost another year to love your job again.

    I just started but I do enjoy the technology and developing solutions for complex problems.

    I also get free training and exam vouchers. I pay nothing out of pocket.

    I had an opportunity to take a job working 95% remote for about 20% less pay not long ago. I wish I had taken it.

    What do I love about my job? The pay enables me to do things I want to do on my own time. Solving problems and learning is pretty constant in IT security. Sometimes we create the problems, but then look for solutions after. It's something I can not only do, but enjoy doing.

    4) My boss is super nice and chilled. (my edit)

    5) There are not any throw people under the bus moments. We always find a win - win resolution
    However,
    the job that I am in isnt contact, it is full time. I am working for a vendor and I have the same love too.

    Plus, i get to be a technical trainer for my region (EMEA) and i also get to focus on making sure our channel partners are the best they can be and also within a presales role.
    6) because i work from home, i can expense things when i leave my home office to go places (and get paid mileage as well)
    7) I get commission each month based on our numbers.

    I do love the job i am in I am blessed and thankful I have it.

    Yes!! I worked 100% remote for 5 years with a large bank. Then spent 3 years working in the office for various companies. Now 100% remote again. I don't think I'm ever going to hold another job that's not primarily remote. I honestly have zero interest in leaving the company I'm with, and really, the position either. I'll keep adding to/refreshing my skill set, but I really have no desire to leave my current position. There's nothing else I need to prove to myself. I've met my (IT) career and income goals with this position.

    Treadmill desk that's what I want or a bike desk (do they make those?).
