Some £9 a month .. feels like doable.
As everything would be remotely anyway .. on-boarding is no longer being handed a badge, PIN-code and shown to an office space .. nowadays, it's VPN and MFA .. remote-work and Teams-meetings ..
"Network security policies are carved in stone" ... and 20 minutes later, "allowing this is maybe how it should be for all the following services using this pattern..."
Security dept rounded as they had not stumbled upon this before, AWS -> on-prem, where production and test networks needed to be reached from a common instance.
OTOH, I've already checked out mentally, I only continue on until I get a new assignment.
I have a possible new assignment lined up for start of next year. New stuff to learn, lots of white areas on my knowledge map. Already looking forward to this.
Mysteriously they are also all "Senior Developer" or "Senior Architect" .. even though they come to me for help, hand-holding or briefings about stuff the SHOULD KNOW with a title as that.
They are thankful and praise my knowledge. Yeah, it only took me some 20 years .. but hey, who's counting?
I do not have a "Senior" in my title.
They graduated 5 years ago.
Knowledge is not transferred between individuals, what I said or taught person A, does not transfer to person B. Notes on projects are kept but not used, so I have to re-iterate cases to get them up to speed and next call, same again as person has moved out or are on "leave".
... and as soon as they have been on the job for 3-6 months, they rotate to one that have learned something out and in comes a new team of MVP's.
I'm baffled that the MSP network team even manages to get ANY firewall rules in place, as they seem to hire only MVP's -- Minimum Viable Persons .. you breathe, HIRED!
Customer expects me to check, double-check and spot-check each and every port-opening .. because the do not trust that MSP either .. so, lots of costs to have me double-check the MSP's jobs.
What the eff .. Large MSP network team that handles million $ network equipment .. who are completely oblivious to CIDR annotation... I order things in ranges, easier, prettier and friendlier.
They read "172.16.x.32/31", interprets it as 172.16.x.32 and only that .. when it actually is .32 AND .33 ..
I need to re-order everything from june and forward just because the MSP is too cheap to hire people with education/knowledge.
