I was hired as Project Manager.

After few days, I discovered that:
- I didn't have a team
- I was also the main and only developer
- all the projects I was assigned to were late
- I was also the account manager and I had to explain the delay to the customers.

And no, the salary didn't make up for the daily loss of reputation.

I lasted more than I thought, when I discovered that customers were not interested in delivery either, as it was a kind of money laundering scheme

    Money Laundering as a service?

    What the fuck

    @Berkmann18 Bills. Money laundering companies sell bills.

    @Berkmann18 Mostly fake R&D projects. I had to produce fake GANTT in the final reports with inflated man hours.
    As the sum of the man-hours was easily more than the IT staff could deliver, I had to put the names of the cleaning staff as junior devs in order not to raise suspicions.

    I was successful, even if I don't exactly what to write in my CV now.

    The line 'And no, the salary didn't make up for the daily loss of reputation.' is worth cocaine.

    You forgot to mention that you were lead as well :D And QA! :D Sloppy

    @eptsousa yeah, let's poke the bear. Make sure you have a pack of wolves around you to beat it.

    I would just move to other job.
