Right , you're defending an organisation that you couldn't even stand to work for?... and the 'good work for crap pay' remark applies to millions, who don't even 1/5 of protection or benefits that a dull, uninspiring, insipid, paper shuffling CS Nerds gets.I was a CS and I don't particularly think of my time there as self serving. I thought the pension was average given the below average salary on offer and although the job could be easy I still made an effort and tried to do what was asked of me to the best of my abilities. There's a lot of people in the CS trying to do good work for crap pay and they don't deserve to be denigrated.
That said, I wasn't impressed by my first day in the CS or by much of what I saw from senior management there. I once had to send an apology to an outsourcing partner for criticizing their prices, despite my immediate line management - including the person that wrote the apology for me - telling me the criticism was more than justified.
Rather than hang around in such a dysfunctional environment I decided to get employed elsewhere.
Ok, I think that shows the value of you comments .
