So anthill were you one of the 54kers? Were you one of the ones who applied when the job advert read 'this position offers limited career progression?'
j3pipercub is spot on.

I remember when the fist positions were advertised for CFO positions and the salary was in $50k. That wage at the time almost half of what a QF S/O was paid. The big shiny jet syndrome evident and a lot of people were swept up in it. Luckily for them, the rest of us, and the rest of the industry this acceptance of well below the going rate for an S/O didn't back fire and VAI have survived and there has been a significant (debatable) wage increase. You CFO's who applied when salary was 50k rolled the dice, some would say you gotta be in it to win it. But if the outcome of your haste conculded with VAI not surviving and went the other way i wonder how all your colleagues would of viewed you eagerness then......

Count your lucky stars cos there are plenty out there who have not had anywhere near as much "luck" as you may have.
