    Staff work really hard to fix issues now they are empowered.
    Credit external experts and managerial acumen for bringing them in.
    Screw staff on wages to pay for external experts.
    Staff leave and demoralised.
    Company is screwed again.

    Rinse & repeat.

    Pretty much standard sadly.
    it's even worse as most of the technical staff is outsourced.
    They need to be told what to do and how, but have no personal investment in success.

      ah external experts, its the staff fault because they obviously don't manage the relationship well enough.

        they would be better off if they hired local staff and paid them decently. The money they save on cheap staff goes to people like me, and huge business delays.

          The savings go to bosses bonuses and the costs come out of a different budget.

            probably. These big corps suck ass.
            if I was a horrible person, I'd write a very detailed analysis of the project and its flaws and explain what caused it to be likethis, then hand it to my boss' higher ups.
            But that is petty even for me

              Why would I, the contractor, care? Not my circus not my monkeys.....
              This is why you flit from low-paid role to low-paid role, mainly within the public sector.

                I wouldn't be given it to the management of your current client, but a bullet point version that you can use to warn people elsewhere as similar problem occurs is worth it's weight in gold, as you can identify problems and go "well the last time a client tried to do that XYZ occurred and you don't want X nor Y so this is how you avoid them".

                  Would you really take the word of an outgoing contractor on a gig, especially one that's so vocal and quick to blame everyone else?

                    find something that they have done illegal - easy in clusters like this and drop a coin on them. Do a few weeks afterwards.
