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

    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?

    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.

    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.

    Demoralise staff,
    Screw up company,
    Hire external highly paid experts to fix,
    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.

    The thing is- this sort of mentality and ****ery is WHY I was brought in. This is what I was supposed to fix. This was what I fixed until boss decided to fall back into the same bulltulip they'd done for 10 years.
