in reply to Thing that would make going to work more agreeable

I think the most important one is missing. That would be more hiring so we would not have to wear so many hats at work. I think a lot of us work in departments that have had significant layoffs and are having to do way more work than normal. At least that is the case where I work. So I would say an upswing in corporate spending would make going to work way more agreeable.

cheers

    Hear, hear. When the economy improves a lot of companies are going to find out a hidden cost of making people wear too many hats - poor employee retention. Many people are just sitting tight until things improve, then they are outta there...

    JSchmitz, that sounds awfully familiar. Now that our develoment group has been somewhat trimmed I now have have the "pleasure" of maintaining PL/SQL and Java code as well as Perl. To make life a little more interesting our DBA left last week to go onto bigger and better things. Rumor has it that there will be no replacement because "the Programmers can do it" :-(
