Why I hate my job.

They recruited me 17 months ago to work on rebuilding their internal WordPress sites. Along the way they lost their full-stack developer so I’ve stepped in and took over his workload - including two server rebuilds and a single domain Magento 1.9 migration. The server rebuilds were required as the old ones were fraught with issues and were going down daily.

It’s taken until now (I stared on 2nd Jan) to finally begin working on one of WordPress rebuilds. I’ve also been essentially promised Magento 2.0 training to allow us to migrate our systems.

So, to the crooks of the matter. I’ve been informed by my Manager that BOTH of the Magento 2 sites will be sent to an agency (significantly more expensive than upskilling) and BOTH of the other WordPress rebuilds will be sent to agencies as well which leaves me to wonder just exactly what the fuck my purpose is here.

And, to top it off, they’ve decided to move our hosting to an external company. So I won’t be maiming the servers either. 17 months to work on one single WordPress rebuild... so angry right now and I don’t know how to handle it other than to leave. I just can’t think of any other word to describe them than disrespectful.
