ATTENTION: Engineering Leadership, you have a Voice!

What’s this about?

To each their own, but review and decide for yourself. Recently received this from a gentleman we’ll refer to as Writer X (like Racer X). Enjoy!

Open Letter to Industry C-Level

Desperate Engineering Executive, who has worked long hours, took piles of $hit projects from unqualified peers, looked the other way when people were not held accountable, seek new employment.  Specialize in cleaning up messes after others have crashed and burned them for lack of experience, education and/or due diligence.

Will even consider a pay cut for an opportunity with an organization that has an HR department (ethics is a bonus), benefits that will not put me in the poor house if catch cold, and dress code that does not require purchase of $30 company logo shirt’s. Also a college educated boss that does not have a learning impediment, i.e., ADD, OCD, or myriad of  other acronyms.

Prefer a position within a 50 mile radius of Writer X’s home. Willing to start immediately without providing 2 weeks notice. In fact, as a token of my appreciation to your trust, I’ll throw the first week in for FREE since I have not been able to use PTO hours accrued in well over a year.

Disgruntled but certainly yours,

Writer X, aka, VP of Engineering

So, what’s this REALLY about?

It’s about Leadership. More to the point, about POOR Leadership and the casualties of this behavior. You see, the individual with poor behavior isnt the only one that suffers, they ‘infect’ those around them.

Here in Indiana, we’d say they ‘poison the whole water hole’. Actually, Ive never heard that said….hmmm….maybe I drank some tainted water myself?

I know this: if your job sucks that’s too bad, if you stay, that’s your fault. Ready to make a change, click here
