What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Sr. Chemist in Baltimore:
"An aging industry."
Nuclear power is an aging industry few are aspiring to and frequent retirements are causing everyone to be overloaded and no promise of the situation improving overall. Even if a replacement is hired the 2-4 yr learning curve means a stressful & hectic time for all and work-life balance is no longer possible for anyone.
