Software engineer, it's fairly normal but not 20 months in a row normal
Yes. Unfortunately my as yet unproven theory is that the Covid era has accelerated the work from living space environment often portrayed in futuristic sci-fi movies. Unfortunately that also means the already set in motion complete death of newsprint, brick and mortar retail and business, as well as the current f2f social atmosphere.…
Feel free to let me know if I have time warped into the future too extensively, currently obsessed with abusing a holiday brisket in the Traeger ….

I'm a UX/UI Designer working remote. I'm on another state now just to get out of my city and meet another place. That's the good thing of working remote.

But in some ways if you're too much in your place without human contact it might be not so good... So its important to have it with friends, dates, etc.

Stage one is working remotely.
stage 2 will be outsourcing as much as possible overseas.

I’m lucky that my job is essentially a wealth based role and people investing hundreds of thousands don’t want to talk to an Indian, but I feel for a lot of folks.

my company just outsourced most of its tech overseas and the quality of their work is astonishingly bad. They have absolutely no understanding of the business they are assisting and are solely focussed on getting your support request closed - often without actually solving anything.

You’re describing the mistake many US companies made starting about two decades ago. It first surfaced in manufactured furniture imports from China. Said companies had to locate strict product quality reps on site there or China made and shipped krap here.

I completely understand what you’re saying regarding outsourced product creation, customer support, and service. The first barrier to get past is a customer talking to a foreigner and it’s made worse if there is a lack of awareness, understanding, and resolution from the foreigner.
Horrible production and customer support can eventually kill a company’s reputation and do significant damage financially. Your company’s too leadership needs service / product educators on site there or they will be unemployed soon…

Why do people keep doing this?
Its been know for many years now that the coders from India produce low quality sh'it code and support - well I'm not going to even start diving into that rabbithole of pure crap and comment on it.
When are people ever going to learn? :devil:

Yet, there are these retards that still keep doing it.
Its astonishing that people haven't learned the lesson from years and years of other companies failure with this...

Whatever it is, you are all right, it’s shockingly bad.

I keep feeding it up the line “they don’t know what they’re doing”

we used to have about 4 people who I assumed were on great money and they made them redundant or moved them on, and now we have to raise a ticket - what is it with IT and their love of tickets? Before I could just speak to someone. Now, I have to spend 25 minutes getting a query in a nice little package with tons of irrelevant information to the IT team because they want it all on a plate. Im sorry -NO. When my customer calls me I can’t fob them off by asking them to raise a ticket and take time out of their day with some crap webpage thing to make my life easier.

this is what I notice about digitalisation of businesses. It’s basically IT and development teams shovelling as much of the work out towards the front line as they possibly can, and then clearing as much as quickly as they can and saying “see? We’re so efficient now” as the business crashes and burns. That’s all digitalisation means to me: ticket based systems which get as much work as possible off the desks of the developers, sack as many people who know what they’re doing as they can and reduce the business to one of base, repetitive tasks with no scope for agility, no intuition and no self awareness.

it literally does my head in

Most jobs can be done remotely, outsourcing sounds good in theory but in practice you always get what you pay for.

It's always been a much smoother process when i call up customer service and get an Actual Australian on the line who knows what his talking about rather then some foreigner who obviously gets peanuts.

I currently work with various government departments and communication is a huge part of my role.

The one benefit of people overreacting to covid is that I get to not have to go into an office anywhere. It's great. My computer is just fine, too, and I have much better hardware and monitors than what the workplaces offer. Hilarious how it took virtue signalling a virus to get people to work remotely more, especially against all those executives and managers who think working from the office is the true way to work.

What are you selling and where:)?
A few pals work in tech. Fully remote. Several got fired over root beer floats. Even union trade guys were getting pushed. A few jumped in on entry level help desk roles. Pay was less than spectacular but it avoided the **** outcome of being held over a barrel. Possibly something that you can look into.

You sir are a juggernaut. That book was dry as ****kkkk. Long slog. Liked the part about "adequate returns." Would only imagine the perspective now with crypto.

Glad you are doing well mate.

I work fully remote. My company is literally on the other side of the country. I love it. Even if the pay was lower than non-remote jobs (which it isn't) the time and $ you save from not commuting is staggering.
