For some background, I work in an R&D group of a pretty large company. I do software stuff, mostly.
My boss told me explicitly that the “responsibility” (blame) for certain parts of our project will fall on me... if it fails. Do I get any credit if it succeeds? Of course not. Do I have any control over the success or failure of these things? No. Am I completely fed up with this shit? Yes.
I have been warning of problems in this area (sorry for being vague) for over a year and proposing solutions that I would implement myself. I was repeatedly turned down due to the risk and time required to properly fix things and now I’m being told that I’ll be responsible if it fails.
Venting complete, Oppo. I need to go for a drive.
