Theme Song:Despite all my rage, I’m still just a rat in a cage [Bullet With Butterfly Wings]” by Smashing Pumpkins 

Description: Stan has been with the company for 7.4 years, started at the lowest grade level and has only been promoted once.  It’s not like he hasn’t tried.

Stan is becoming disengaged with his work and starting to believe that it’s him versus “management” and that there is no way for him to move up because they are against him. 

He has a lot of hobbies outside of work that allow him to express his true passions.  He is thinking about starting a business so he can use more of his skills.
