My latest 2 additions are not up to par. I chose them out of a round of interviews because they were the best at what I could find (at that time). Over the course of 1-2 years I realized that their not real SysAdmins. One at least tries but doesn't always heed my advice about our environment. My biggest issue is the other one does very little. I would ask him to do some stuff and he rarely follows through. He's been assigned a project which has taken his entire time to somewhat complete. He keeps pushing up the date every so often and through all the managers we've been through he keeps getting a free reset/reprieve. I've pointed out at how little he contributes to the team and the company overall but they won't simply get rid of him. Being a former manager myself I understand you have to build up a case, do some write-ups before finally committing the axe. My manager, his boss and our Senior VP know of this and still do nothing. When it comes from big projects to mundane everyday tasks/tickets I end up doing 50% of the work for a 3 man team. I don't mind doing alot of the work but I constantly ask them to make an effort. Its not like I've hired these folks and they're 6 months into the job. Both of them started at the same time and they've been there for 2+ years now. My question is two-fold. What can I do to potentially speed up his departure? If I see nothing on the horizon should I just up and leave and let my company? I would prefer not to leave the company as I have tenure and I enjoy the freedoms of making things a better place. I've researched alot on this subject for months now but I'm finally asking the
/. community. Thanks.
