This is so typical...
of today's IT manager. Most IT people do not want to be in a managerial position. They love what they do and generally have a great work ethis. As a result, most of those who are willing to accept a management position have never been a programmer, or else they knew that would be unable to sustain a career in programming due to a lack of ability. So, they do what any talent-free, ladder climber does: they become butt-kissing yes-people who will throw anybody under a bus to get promoted. And, also typical of IT managers, they love the kind of person who will kiss their butts and do their dirty work for them. It's sickening because most IT people out there know that they do not have a supportive manager. They know that their manager will happily fire anybody for any reason if they knew it would please the manager's manager. These kinds of people have no compassion, empathy or spine. Their whole career cann be summed as "kissing up and kicking down". I worked in an insurance company for many years and most of the IT managers fit this description. Frankly, I don't know how any of them could look in the mirror and like what they see..!!
