Manager's name was Tom. We started the acronym FoT - Friend of Tom. He hired all his friends. Last one he hired at a higher salary than he was making so he could get a big raise - I have to make more than the people that work for me. He basically hired the last guy to be the &quot;manager&quot; over two guys even though his title was Senior Software Dev. One of the two guys did 95+% of the coding on a complete ground up re-write of one of the software control and GUI systems. Upgrade was scheduled to cost $20k for each of the 3,000+ platforms. Demo'd at a trade show - customers loved it. The one guy doing all the work got a $200/year raise. He went to work for another company for $30k/year more. He said he would stay for a match. Company wouldn't do it. Project never got finished. They threw away potentially $60M in revenue for $30k. A new electrical engineer there figured out a problem that other engineers had tried to figure out for 5+ years. When the issue occurred at a customer site it meant flying an engineer to fix it not to mention down time for the customer - at least $200k/year total plus bad will. The temp/consultant VP of engineering tried to get him a bonus. He got a letter back saying that if there was any money left over after the management bonuses they would consider it. Needless to say he didn't get a bonus. This was a small company - 200 or so people - but the CEO lived in another state and flew in each Monday. How much was that? <br />The company was a 90 year old company and the management drove it into the ground in less than 4 years. All the engineers I knew saw the writing on the wall and jumped ship.</p> Wed, 26 Aug 2015 17:20:45 -0500 /blog/entry/55860/top-10-reasons-why-corporate-it-sucks#comment4244282 Win A Free Website - FOREVER!!! - Yonas Berhanu <p>it is nice and prefebele website for free domain ,I am so happy get this free website.I like it and realy it is forever free website</p> Tue, 04 Aug 2015 02:03:47 -0500 /blog/entry/3684050/win-a-free-website-forever#comment4242538 Top 10 Reasons Why Corporate IT Sucks - Corporate IT Germany <p>This article is spot on. Nothing different here in Europe. <br />It's not fun to see your colleagues losing their jobs to some Indian IT guys. (They are mostly horrible coders - no comments, weird variable declarations, procedural style). <br />Almost all corporate IT projects are about saving costs. Some 1%er millionaire and billionaire shareholders from Dubai and Hong Kong have to get richer than they already are! <br />Dealing with legacy crap from the last century - no thanks.</p> <p>Never - ever - work for corporate IT. The only exception is maybe Google, facebook or Apple. <br />Developers, go join a tech startup and change the world ;)</p> Mon, 20 Jul 2015 08:17:43 -0500 /blog/entry/55860/top-10-reasons-why-corporate-it-sucks#comment4241451 Template Design Tools: General - Body Settings - Marielle Holmes <p>Awesome!

Started at 30k and made my way up to 80k with average 4% raises every year. It was good. I got laid off because our little company got bought out by another bigger company and worst case scenario economic collapse occurred in 2008. New Management came in and gave themselves big bonuses and big raises. At least 6 people in the IT department were making 100K a year and to pay for it all they came after the little guy making 80k. So they cut me and took mine to pay for it. IT sucks now. </p> <p>Now I work for another company making half what I use to make. I wont let six months hit me before I walk out the door. Got my house paid for, so now all I have to find is food and money for internet access.</p> Sun, 03 May 2015 09:52:34 -0500 /blog/entry/55860/top-10-reasons-why-corporate-it-sucks#comment4235775 Template Design Tools: General - Body Settings - Heath Huffman <p>No, this is a waste of time to try and prevent. People can always do screenshots and other methods to get copies of your images. The only thing you can do is threaten litigation on those site you find using your images.</p> Sun, 01 Mar 2015 22:48:10 -0600 /blog/entry/3719689/template-design-tools-general-body-settings#comment4230068 Multi-Language Labeling For Doodlekit - Heath Huffman <p>Hi Juliana,</p> <p>To truly make your pages international, you would probably want to hire professionals to rewrite all your content into each new language. Outside of that you would have to rely on content translation through automation - which never works out that well. That being said, it is probably the only option available for you. This technology is already easily accessible through browsers and search engines (Google will translate any page to any language). </p> Fri, 02 Jan 2015 22:49:40 -0600 /blog/entry/8910/multilanguage-labeling-for-doodlekit#comment4226327 How To Make Logos & Banners For Your Website - Jason Rogers <p>Hello,</p> <p>Please can someone help me?
