IT rock bottom



  • So i finally hit it in my job, yes I knew it and felt it very clear.

    Now i am the IT supervisor that is in charge of new responsibility of paying the mobile communication bills, do you actually believe this ?

    And afterwards I have to create some sophisticated dashboard with a click of button that will detect old hardware age so we can replace it, using an outdated web solution that I have no part of, and was created by third party team.

    How did i reach this place ... hopefully soon I will find quick escape. You see it coming and your working with garbage but you never really know it will reach this low.

    I asked for IT assistant.
    IT separate room
    IT level/salary increase.

    But all those takes ages, and many promises and words, and what do i get, a responsibility that have 0% IT skills in it



  • Well for the hardware age tracking issue. . . deploy snipe-it.

    For the rest of it, and paying the company cell phone bill. . . what the heck is your accounting department doing?

    I did, but I cant use it.

    We have our own in-house tool, that has to be made in France, and done from the ground up by amateur developers, and throw alot of money at it, then we have to use it and bring life to it.

    Or you can save all of that money and ignore the "must be made in france" as I'm sure there has been some contribution to the Snipe-IT project from someone in France.

    And just do what works. .

    No you dont get it, see its NGO from france, so all the donations need to go back to france some way or another, think about it like legal money laundering but in smart way. Also they hire idiots as managers from there.

    This sounds like you just need to stop laundering than. . .

    Managment thinks they can do everything, and just goes I can do very good in IT they add more tasks on you, now I am in charge of disabling / enabling SIM devices and shit like that, and adding features and lines and internet on mobiles , thats nonsense

    The only good answer is... find another job and run away from there. There is no positive future in that organization.



  • Too bad for you, I know very well how that goes 😞



  • I also know how that is. My first MSP job was the same way. I was tasked with getting Kaseya up and running. Then it snowballed from there. New job responsibilities, no support, no help, and of course, no increase in pay. Stayed there for 3 years and then finally called my boss a fat lazy bastard and left. I didn't just burn the bridge I poured gas on it and stood on the other side laughing.

    Did you really? I'm surprised the cops weren't called and you weren't arrested for arson. . .

    There was no bridge left to burn by the time they got there.
