Slate your IT procedures/Horror stories
Posted on 2013-06-28
I thought I would ask a light hearted question around general network/IT administration as every IT tech I have ever spoken to has slated the way they do things or their colleagues do things in IT environments, such that it would shock auditors or senior management if they knew the bad practices and corner cutting they come across when working in IT departments. IT employees often know the way they are doing things are the best, but there concerns often fall on deaf ears when raising this to management whose sole purpose is productivity and doing things quickly!
So.... what issues, horror stories, and bad practices have you come across over the years in your roles within IT? Any tales will be most interesting, whether you are a windows admin, network infrastructure admin, DBA etc.
