Abstract:

A survey of mid-level professional civil service Navy employees disclosed manifestations of frustration exist in sixty percent of the respondents. This characteristic relates to the mid-career and mid-life crisis identified by researchers and directly affects the fabric of which organizations are woven. Certain organizational identification is described and age groupings within the population are correlated with existing theories. Removal of the element of frustration from the perceived career patterns has a benefit which can be measured and the affect on the organization is material. A long term educational experience is suggested as a device for allowing introspection and revitalization of the employee, thereby creating a challenge which has rewards to the organization and the employee. A costbenefit analysis is presented. Author
