Is it normal that no one from the management has even a minimal idea of what is going on? I mean, 90% of the team is completely incompetent, and 100% of the management as well. They know basically nothing about the system we are trying to keep alive.
I hate the corporate way that the manager is more a politician than a professional...
I hate that I have constantly to teach everyone and there is no one who can show me nothing, btw for the same salary... I don't even like this job. We have no access to half of the system we have to maintain, and 50% of the time I'm standing there with 3 managers around me asking how long will it take, while I have no access. I mean... c'mon.
My only hope is the data center they're building nearby, so maybe I can get a job there, or maybe I have to give a try to some junior web dev or network tech position in Amsterdam.
It's such a nice place to cry out my frustrations...

    "Modern management"

    In the olde days we used to take people from the shop floor who had management glint in their eye, so they knew their onions.

    Nowadays, I hear folk can go straight from university/etc. to management training school..

    So you end up with folk who haven't a clue how a particular business functions at the coal face, but are great at putting in an order for new pencils..

    Actually, even that is beyond them, since I remember one manager doing that, and was so proud of having found a supplier who gave us 5% cheaper pencils.

    The only trouble was, they had awful lead quality and would break all the time, requiring us to use almost 100% more pencils per week..

    (We wasn't allowed pens..)

    Here's management 101: The Pareto principle states that: 80% of the work is done by 20% of the staff.

    @gibus Pareto principle also states that 80% of the times you fingered yourself, you did it with 20% of your fingers. We know that's false because you always use your pinky.

    @electrineer I hope the 20% in your company have a better understanding of logic than you.
