I work for the State, a place where progress, innovation, unique thinking and independent action, go to die.
But man are the perks awesome. As is (in my case anyway) the pay, it's obscene. Especially compared to the amount of work I am allowed to do.
Most of the day I am in an office, handling systems remotely, but when the systems properly locked down and managed, very little goes wrong.
So I write, read, and generally goof off. Sounds great, no?
Not really, anytime there is an actual issue (like out NAS running out of space) I have to get 15 different people involved before I am allowed to make a decision, and then my decision is sent around for review.
I've been waiting for a larger NAS for 8 months so far...
