Can you bring back Don't Scare the Hare for a season 2? That was my favourite thing you've made so far I think.

Did this all start after you went on that gameshow?

Second turns out it was a listing for the same job, so I just told them the first one would be reppin' me.

After bitching recently about never getting a bonus, it turns out I am going to get a £400 bonus as a reward for some work I did recently.

It's not life changing cash, but it'll do!

Had that presentation and interview this morning.

Same old feelings after any interview really. Could have gone a lot worse, could have gone a bit better.

Minor slip ups here and there in the presentation and I'm not happy with a couple of the answers I gave in the interview, but you can never really expect things to go 100% to plan.

Now comes the waiting and anticipation... :dread:

Work are now asking us to report on everything we do once a week so they can ensure we are completing our work on time. The reporting and meetings end up taking up like a day and a half a week which is a day and a half lost on other work. It's only been going for 2 weeks but I already feel like I'm well behind on the weekly tasks because of it. It just seems completely counter productive. Oh well, just had to vent but I'm not really that fussed. I'll do what I'm told.

I am so glad I work in a company where this bullshit doesn't happen. If they do try anything they always ask what we think too.

There's nothing worse than an organisation that doesn't (a) trust its workforce or (b) hire appropriately so that they can trust them. It doesn't increase productivity at all. Good pay, creative opportunities, feedback and recognition does.

Some management people are truly Victorian in their approach to encouraging productivity but it also gives them an opportunity to exercise and justify their own bellowing salaries to shareholders (including themselves if they are managing directors/shareholders but especially if they don't have any shares).

My company, albeit in a different directorate, just hired a company for a 16 week period to come in, assess how long tasks should take and use that data to assess how productive employees are with each working day. That statistic gets put up on a whiteboard in either red or green according to whether you were -/+ 100%. Naming and shaming at its most blatant.

Of course this only applied to those on the bottom rung and nobody in a managerial or supervisory position.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.
