Formerly, I was a fraud investigator with a bank.

These days, I spend most of my time talking crap on the Internet.

Consultant to agricultural and veterinary companies.

Pros: Work for myself, set own hours, can work in my PJs if I feel like it, work is varied and mainly interesting.

Cons: Work for myself, not much social interaction. The work that is not varied and mainly interesting is mind numbingly boring.

ICU RN
Pro's
1. Scrubs and sneakers everyday

3. Every once in awhile you actually get to save someone's life/make a profound difference everyday
Con's
1. Scrubs and sneakers everyday

but number 3 on the pro list can always trump any of the cons

I'm an RN too... used to do Neonatal ICU until the burnout got me. Now I'm a Clinical Resourse Nurse in Pediatrics - I work at a specialty hospital in Boston that treats problems with the head and neck (eyes, ears, brain, throat, nose... there's a lot more than you think). Basically my job is a fancy name for taking patients, orienting new nurses, doing education with hospital staff, and a lot of paperwork. A "resource" if you see what I mean... I was asked to take the position which was nice, so I really shouldnt complain.

Pros: The kids are a lot of fun, for the most part the people I work with are great, I make decent money (although I could make more), and we have some really great doctors, and yes, scrubs to work everyday!

Cons: Long hours sometimes, holidays, sad cases, taking the train to work. Arrogant doctors and snot-nosed residents that think they know everything after one day in pediatrics. And one another nurse who drives everyone else crazy too!

Have any idea where the last naame Guterac hails from?

What would require some reseach here. We have many names all pronounced the same, but they might have 2,3 or 4 different spellings.
