Week of feedback in Crossover

If you had to get a job through the HR department, here are some standard phrases that you get after a week of silence and a couple of letters and calls to the responsible persons from the organization of interest: "we found a more suitable candidate", "you do not fit us" "This vacancy is already closed", "* illegible mooing *". No matter how much they say that a neutral answer is "care" about a candidate, it's all about resources, and instead of ephemeral care, a person gets a jump in blood pressure and a feeling that the N-hours were wasted.

"No, my friends, it's not going to work!" You feed me tales for a year! Year! And the situation is only aggravated! 27% of deviations, almost a third of the warehouse does not correspond to accounting!
Kurchatov was in a rage, which was rare - he was surprisingly optimistic, educated and, as it seemed to Sergei, intelligent for the business owner. The previously seen owners of much smaller companies were not more prosaic.
- Do you understand what these deviations mean for me? It's money, millions, about which I do not know anything! So, you, Anatoly Pavlovich, do you know how much ...[/h]

"Have you done the accounting task?" Report. You promised to finish today.

About the IT market in Russia honestly

In the last few years, my worries about the Russian IT market have only intensified. It all started with the ruble crisis of 2014 (and maybe even earlier), and since then I have not lost the feeling that many Russian companies, especially provincial ones, have blindfolded their ears and are still trying to pretend that nothing is happening . I talked a lot with different companies, with HR, with developers, and compiled a list of disappointing theses about what the program market is like and the culture of development as a whole, because these are interrelated things. According to my subjective ...

Dreams, dreams

On a cold autumn evenings, we with the developers of 3D visualization applications were gathering in the kitchen drinking coffee and thinking about it about the reference development organization.

Do the guys from Silicon Valley use meritocracy? Realization of the principle of equality or only the idea of ​​Jeff Bezos

Do the guys from Silicon Valley use meritocracy? Realization of the principle of equality or only the idea of ​​Jeff Bezos A large number of Silicon Valley companies use the basics of meritocracy to manage employees and business processes. What is meritocracy? This term was introduced by Michael Young in 1958. In his satirical essay he describes the world of the future, in which leading positions are occupied by the most intellectually developed people. Nothing good ends, and another revolution comes. However, the idea with the power of "the most capable" people touched the hearts and minds of many businessmen. It is clear that initially the author emphasized that one intelligence for management is not enough and this leads to even ...
