If Everyone Is A Manager, Who's Doing All The Work....

Recommended Posts

Job title inflation rears its ugly head.

When I used to work in Switzerland nearly everyone was a Director. Director of Hygene Services - guy who cleans the loos.

The OP's question is a good one. I work for a large multi-national as an engineer. For the past 4 months, the project I have been on has had nearly all the assigned staff sat in the same room. 99% of the time, there's a max of 3 engineers and usually around 12 PM's / Managers / Delivery Executives / Delivery Managers. Then they get upset because they have no resource to complete all the required engineering / design tasks in the ridiculous timescales they set.

I had to go to china to "fix" something, 1 "fixer" went with 4 managers. That was 1 person to do the work...4 people to manage it.

They shut the office down shortly after, no more managers.

What a beautiful middle class dream.

With all these managers, surely they are all HOME OWNERS living in leafy 3 bedroom semis, with Audi A4s in the drive, because being a manager commands good wages. <_<

There is no work.

Hehe "good" managers create work to look like they've been busy "managing". Every good manager has always something to report back to his/her superior manager.

I think that's absolutely correct. The managers have proper jobs with pensionable salaries. Grunt work has been outsourced.

And guess who is next in the que for the globalised meat grinder?

I must have been sat in the same project meetings as you.
