My organization is having another restructure; it seems to come every two years now.
It's would be funny if not tragic: we have the same number of managerial positions, and eliminating several technical position, to become "to create a flatter organization chart"
We're a medium size organization of about 500 people, and have a huge Internet and data warehouse presence.
We were discussing the six system engineer positions.
No one's role is network engineer, security engineer, storage engineer, cloud engineer, VMware engineer, backup operator.
We're kept so busy that no one attends courses, or goes to conferences.
Everyone is expected to upskill to all skills.
Since I'm at 115% of the pay scale, I've never gotten a rise.
Others have gotten at best 5% per year.
