Week 10 - Management Woes
"Some people really don’t
appreciate the contribution the employees make.
The impact I'm having on our team’s output cannot be overstated; we’re flat
out at the moment what with the end of ’06 fiscal.
I’ve been trying to set an example to the team by working late but once the
clock hits five they’re all out, on the dot, straight in the pub. It’s
annoying but there’s nothing I can really do about it, at the moment I am
not in control of overtime allocation decisions. There is no overtime
offered to employees and these people won’t work for free unfortunately,
even though we have a million financial reports
we need out by the end of next week. Where’s the commitment?
What is more annoying is I don’t get any support from management. After my
appraisal, I now get to sit in on the meetings of top brass of the company,
the middle managers whose decisions
shape the future of our bank. These meetings are really important dealing
with all the major issues effecting London cell.
These guys really know what they’re talking about; you only need to take a
look at the car park outside for evidence of that!
Malcolm’s boss is a man called Brian Hunt.
In the meetings Hunt - or Brian Cunt as I call him hehe – just takes over
the discussion. No one else can get a word in edgeways. I suggested that we
need to implement a new regimented mandatory
overtime policy for our team during busy work times like this
month. Cunt just dismissed it out of hand.
It’s people like that who are preventing the bank from getting even better
results – and ruining the performance bonuses
for me ...and everyone else of course!"
