So you're never happy then?

Fscking devil spawn those things...
I recently went through a 4week exercise to get printing setup on my machine. In the course of getting it added, they deleted credentials on my machine that fscked up so many other things.... I don't like printers.

Surprisingly there was no “direction” or great “leadership”.

To me this is important and while the factors above contribute greatly I guess this can be factored into one of the above but trust me.. a lot of companies in SA don’t have good managers and so senior staff have to fill the gap. With the right manager, 6-7 of the above if not all addressable issues are resolvable. Salary is pending budget.
