oh my, this guy was a serious joke. This was 3 years ago at a company I just joined and this guy should have had more than 10 years of experience.

He was a frontend developer and I had to explain to him how to create a hamburger slide-out menu with jQuery.

He got laid off a couple of months later and now his title holds "senior" developer... I feel sorry for his colleagues that have to deal with his stupidity every day now

    No matter how dumb someone is, if they are not an asshole, I feel bad when someone losses their job.

    I feel you. I was forced to use Infosys resources one time at a company I worked for. The "architect" they placed on our team, who might have been 24 years old, was presented with comprehensive requirements, 39 features and working stubs with r/g tests, and 55 offshore devs.

    Two months later, because we weren't allowed oversight by contract, he and his two yes men confidently stride into the milestone meeting to show off their progress, "we almost have bootstrap carousel working, we cannot figure out how to add multiple slide, what do?"

    Apparently they had somehow decided not to use the java swing project I'd set up because no one they had on the bench knew java.

    @SortOfTested I never knew Infosys is "that" famous.

    @justdoitnow assholes and incompetent folks should be kicked.

    Not the genuine ones who struggle to keep up with others.

    @F1973 to be honest he was one of those, he just approved pull requests without even looking at the code

    @justdoitnow okay. So now he does the same with 'Senior' in the title! Lol

    Famous, not really. They're just one of the top 5 companies abusing the shit out of our visa system.

    @SortOfTested I wonder how are you so well aware of Indian trash?

    Are you one of those NRIs? o.O

    Reveal yourself and you'll be pardoned.

    Nope, my backstory is out there.

    Those types of companies control access to 60% of the work in the US. You can't really avoid them at companies of size.

    @SortOfTested yes, I know it sucks and I hate service based industries for ruining the culture.

    Cheap labour.

    There's too many desperate people being exploited. It's hurting everyone. Need to find a way to unionize, or standardize wages.

    @SortOfTested not happening in IT.

    Because there'll be a MoFo who will be willing to get exploited just for little extra than others and then next thing we know is everyone is competing for who gets paid the least.

    Fair wages? What does that mean? I have never heard of anything like that..
