But fuck the VP
magicMirror10755173dStand up, walk forward, and say:
"GJ Stacy! Without you, We could have done it much sooner!"
@iiii > "But fuck the VP"
and it wasn't like a one-person adventure. Myself, other web devs making the code changes, couple of network admins herding cats, 'Stacey' had little to no involvement in anything a long the way.
In fact, she would pop-in randomly and say things like "How big is this data you're sending? 1K? Too much...make it smaller. Use compression." <then leave the convo>

Classic corporate culture, am i right?
*Goes to a corner to cry*
@iiii > "guessed that she's a leech"
Sometimes, and a master at the corporate politics game. Almost like a super power.
If you were on her team, you were protected, no matter what. 'Stacey' would, figuratively, gut anyone who she thought would/could threaten anyone on her team or make her team look bad. Her favorite tactic would be make small talk with VPs and 'poison the well' with things like "I've heard PaperTrail isn't a team player, nobody likes him..." etc. In some ways, a positive, in others, not so much.
There were many toxic and inept devs that we should have fired, but she did a great job in protecting her castle. She could proudly say "In the past 20 years, I never had to fire anyone on my team!". Impressive to other mgrs at her level and above, but to us lowly pigeons, we see the crap falling from the eagles.

Those events occurred several years ago and it falls/fell into my 80/20 rule. If I can tolerate 20% of the nonsense, it's fine. I know 100% I could be dealing with something much worse anywhere else.
Most of the time, its pretty good around here. Only get the random "WTF is going on!" moments every few months.
