I wasn’t the one with the two decades experience. But I was fired by an AA monkey, who had been promoted to management 6 months after being hired, despite others in front of him (not me, who never had mgmt ambitions.) The company fired 25% of its IT in two years, replacing them with Bangalore people, who’d stay on the job for 6 moths or less, such was competition for their talents over there, requiring constant training from the US side, but it evidently paid off for the company. In a short run, anyway. Who pays attention to anything beyond the next quarter? The company was soon sold to a European firm, which, I suppose, solved their cash problem - most of their cash was parked overseas, and you know the story of American firms not being able to bring back their foreign earning without being penalized for the good deed.
I had an illiterate AA as a supervisor at a state agency for a few years. The guy turned off spell check and never could grasp cut and paste and this was a technical job.
He was a puppet of the tech manager upstairs and it was so sad in a way. The other puppet was a loud mouth 55 year old redneck ass-kisser/informer.
I run into so many since I am reduced to contractor jobs (which I like better in some respects) that have absolutely no clue and are always back for project after project. One (somehow) managed to shut down a supersized financial callcenter including voice, data, and apparently main power too. The PM would never tell me exactly what he did but all he would say was the action was a common sense one and the guy had no sense.
He tried to get rid of him but the guy stayed on for whatever else there was for a few weeks but was told he was stuck. Glad I wasn’t there.
