Hey -- this question is for those in the IT community -- what do you most wish the executives knew about your department and what you do everyday?
Here's a start of some "gripes," if you will, from a network engineer:

I wish they knew less and knew it. I think that's the key. Although I think that IT has a lot to learn from business and these key lessons have to be learned to prevent outsourcing, less is better. Everyone thinks they 'know about IT' because they have a home pc, this leads to people asking for a solution rather than presenting a problem. As we are the pros let us do our job and guide you to the right choice.
