maybe one can find a job in big company with both high pay and low pressure, generally this is true. in coutries like canada, it's very simple that you have to take more responsibility if you want a higher pay. it's different to state-owned enterprises in china - ways like flattering your boss don't work at all.
today i even got pressure from my recruiting agency - they found my resume on monster.ca. they warned me that I remove my resume by tomorrow otherwise they will 'pull me off'.
