As you can tell from several recent posts, I'm not too happy with my current job. Wait. Strike that. I'm not too happy with management.
I just completed a report, that with appendices will be at least 50 pages long. Yup five oh. Now, I'm happy with he analysis part of the report - I think I did a good job being concise but brief. It's all the other background crap that I had to include that is killing the report.
The other day, I saw a report with six different signatures on it. Does everything have to be done by committee and consensus? Why are we paying people $100,000+ when it they can't make a decision without consulting 5 or more other people?
This is the place that builds a new four-storey building and then conducts a service delivery study and space needs study AFTER the new building is opened. Huh?
I work in the public sector. 10 years ago, this was a great place to work Decisions would be made quickly and you could trust management to do the right thing. Not today.
