  • Mine is:

    1. Client contacts development directly and tries to use their personal connections to jump the entire requirements gathering process and inject their work directly into production.
    2. Development reports it to us, we (very nicely, considering) capture the requirement and backlog it for consideration for the next planning interval.
    3. Client shows up, screams it isn't done.
    4. Our leadership assures Client their needs will be met and scolds us for "not communicating."

    • My hospital is finally clumping up with the new corporate structure (very delayed by Covid), which means everyone with their career in mind is pushing their pet projects. They're all absolutely critical, they all require substantial IT effort (and we're woefully understaffed, like the rest of the world), and they wait until the last second before bringing us in. Then when we give them timelines they complain that we're not getting anything done in appropriate times.


      Whatevs.

        • Talked with my house supervisor and a higher up about Problematic Shift Lead, the one who likes to think her **** don't stink. Higher ups assured me I am supported and I will get adequate training from someone who doesn't think I'm an inconvenience.

              And further investigation reveals first shift can't stand her, her partner on second can't stand her either, and maintaining a bare *** minimum professional relationship with her is hard for everyone.

              Meanwhile, the 23 year old who trained me on first are talking last night and had several "did we become best friends?" moments.

              • We have a department meeting every two months. Today's meeting, as a thank you for all of the hard work we did this year, we're all watching Elf! On Zoom. Sometimes I like my job. This is one of those times.

                • Coworker on the overnight shift doesn't want to help clean the house, and was upset leadership called everyone out on that. Said "it's not our job to clean," which is odd, considering our job is tending to the house as well as the residents.

                  • It's about perspective.

                    I get to go to work.
                    ​​​​​​
                    I get to clean all night.

                    I get to try and sleep in the daylight hours.

                    I get to have an existential crisis while mopping floors at 3 AM.

                      I'd have told them to retain all communications and documents related to this matter, my contract, the firms contracts, and any other info because I'm retaining a lawyer who will be in contact. At a minimum, I'd be suing their as--ses for slander when they told the other company I was holding them hostage. At a minimum.

                      • So I am taking an internal leadership course. It's been really interesting; we've had a bunch of speakers from Harvard Medical School, a couple from the UN and a couple of authors. Part of the course is a group project, and my group's project is on Employee Retention.

                        Considering our hospital hasn't been able to give a normal raise in almost 2 years (some of us did receive these sort-of "retention" raises earlier this year) and hiring is impossible, I think number 1 on our "things to do to make sure our employees don't just quit" is to pay them market rate.

                          3. See 1.
                          4. Stop patronizing them with business bullsh-t everyone except MBAs can see through
                          5. See 3.

                              There's no exception for legal action? Not doubting, just surprised. I figured it would be one of those "greater good" carve outs.
