I'm sort of the opposite, I don't expect much from people. There's so much incompetence that it's not surprising when you run into it

I try to use internet if it will save me explaining it to someone.


Most don’t want to learn but think they are already good while not ...

OP CONTD....are expected to cross Ts, dot Is, think of consequences, and follow through. I get aggravated dealing with people outside of work when I don’t get that.
I know I should be zen about it and maybe develop empathy but I’m curious if this industry, being good at what you do and age is making anyone else feel the same ?

(- Dude, just turned 40)


100% agree. What you said is what makes me afraid to take an industry role where generally speaking the caliber of talent is typically lower.

I find that I’m less patient with day-to-day incompetence in my own workplace vs. in the external world. The “everyone gets a trophy” culture that produced our current crop of junior-level employees has done them (and all of us in the workplace) a real disservice. While I hate to be all “get off my lawn,” I’ve found that young people come into the workplace now with minimal work experience, an expectation of responsibilities and authority they haven’t earned and can’t handle, limited ability to absorb constructive criticism, and difficulty executing basic tasks like research and problem-solving. They get upset and go running to “management” (aka mommy) with hurt feelings rather than trying to improve the quality of their work or develop a thicker skin.

I've found the logic and reasoning skills to be more prevalent in the engineering grads we hire. Problem is, we don't necessarily hire for those shills over pure polish and charisma at that age.

It's like they want to sell the work, and have nobody to deliver it.
