Technology staff want to get promoted, survey reveals

Downtime loves surveys, especially as they tend to confirm the blindingly obvious and hence lead to jocular speculation about what planet these people live on.

The latest in this line comes from – wait for it – Planet Recruit. It found 90% of techies reckon they can do a better job that their boss. They probably can – that is why he hired them. Non-techies are either more unassuming or less testosteronally gifted.

The Planeteers say, “Job boards are a good way of testing the water and seeing if the grass is greener on the other side of the datacentre.” Downtime reckons the grass is usually greener over the septic tank.
