    I "work" in IT but know absolutely ***** ALL about it. I've been getting away with it for about 8 years now. Are there others out there like me?

    Yes, dangerbang. They're called contractors.

    IT project manager Shaheen, 38, is married with two children and lives in Cheshire.


    Shaheen: I've sat in meetings where senior consultants said: "She's not going to do anything" and "She doesn't know about it." I took it at the time, because I was new, but sexism is a very real thing in IT.
    No, it's not cos you're a woman, it's because you're a PM.

    The bobs are multiplying

    This could have been an interesting and amusing article if you'd asked anyone who knows what they're talking about. And if anyone believes what Bob says, please don't. Outsourced IT support only means your staff end up talking to faceless call centre bods who don't care about your organisation, or know anything about it, have little or no technical no-how and have 17 other companies calling through to the same service desk. What little money you save in the short term, you'll lose in the long term by constantly switching providers and the fact that nobody will get any work done because the availabillity of IT Services has plummeted. There are thousands of Roys and Mosses the country over, keeping businesses going. But the Bobs of this world are trying their damndest to stop them.
