The BAM shirt alone brought back a lot of nastalogie.

I'm replying to a lot of comments, so I'm not going to be able to go into too much depth. But with you living in Sweden and me being in the US, discussing employment-related issues is really going to be talking apples and oranges. Congratulations on having the sweeter of the fruits

Edit: spelling

For God sakes in the most rare of circumstances I can see where your are coming from, but I have a feeling that if you are in an organization such as that, where stakes are so high, the team would be happy to cover for someone in an emergency and no one would ask it if a team member if it was not totally necessary. If that's not the case its an institutional issue.

See that kind of garbage is what gets your whole department outsourced. I'm sure the guy was a total drain on the company in every facet. Then they thought they finally had a legitimate reason to fire him, but then due to some technicality it ended up costing them more than it would have to pay him for the rest of his career. Small companies just can't deal with that risk and big ones have insurance big enough to cover this crap all day.

I believe it is a combination of how expensive it is to fire people and how lazy managers are at developing a relationship with their their team members. I feel managers are lazy due to the transative nature of people's career's now. Hit your numbers, get recommendations, move to something better; damn the little guys in between. Not their fault, they are looking after themselves and their families I believe.

The company will be there tomorrow. People's personal lives and your ability to hold on to good talent is much more volatile.

It lets them know that you trust them and also implies that the job is important. by Theirishman1855 in AdviceAnimals

I appreciate your feedback and I must say that your input and others in this thread have changed my opinion that the statement on the post is a blanket statement for all industries or companies.
In my experience, I mainly work with experienced individuals who know the industry usually as good or better than I do most of the time. There is a huge amount of trust developed and all individuals feel comfortable coming to each other for help. So giving them a task and then respectfully saying you got this crap works for me.
You may or may not agree that these details change your response, but that's what these things are for right?

It's been a crazy month at the office. Now that things have slowed down, I have taken a few days to catch my breath. You would think I was some kind of revolutionary by some of the texts that I am getting from the office. by Theirishman1855 in AdviceAnimals

My job doesn't really work like that, I manage my own projects, as long as I take care of my projects and my clients are happy, my job is okay. It's not my superiors giving me flak, it's my peers. Now when I show back up tomorrow one of my superiors may look down their nose and say good to see you or something along those lines.

Mostly do work on the office desktop instead of the company laptop you have at home. As well as answer the phone at your desk instead of having it forwarded to your cell phone. So unless there are meetings or things that really need to be done face to face which is rare, you come in mainly just to keep up appearances.

Yeah, a lot of people seem to think that if you have a job you have to be there Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. regardless of your weekend hours or how late you stayed the day before.
