BDC management has illustrious credentials with graduates in PowerPoint applications, two PhD directors one in candycrush gaming and the other in YouTube viewing and certified bar bouncer program manager. With such leaders we engineers have a glorious future in BDC storage.
(G)raduate (O)f (P)owerPoint (A)pplication is most coward, vindictive, revengeful, deceitful, conniving, resentful individual , who always carries plastic smile on his face, behaving like your best friend with smiles, a helpful attitude, and promises of loyalty and trustworthiness, he waits for the right moment and then turns on you with a vengeance. Best of luck Mr. graduate and gang. God bless you.
-Bye friends and I am moving on...
My new year resolution is I need to learn all these politics, sycophancy, doing nothing,and taking credit and pay raise. These fellas written about extensively in this website are interesting lot. It would help many of us hardworking but stupid people if we learn these conmen tricks. Hope people who have seen these people operate give more specifics on how these fellows pull through their tricks. Thank you and happy new year.
BDC storage super techies are masters in pulling wool over eyes of management. There are seventy people working in a dysfunctional project with junk design and code and still they can get through with the con. Years of mastery in falsifying reports, politicking, lazing around and not doing anything substantial have made them masters of this game. Only bad thing that happened to them was their chief accomplice and leader who was another useless director was fired in October. These guys are a case study on everything negative that goes in organizational behavior.
Same story in every large organization, politicking and boot-licking management! My ex-manager there denied promotion to any senior person until he himself got promoted, slowly folks left for better opportunities. AH is still there.
"To be in their good book you have to praise them, meet them, talk, tea, coffee, butter"
well newsflash, that's exactly what they do to keep their position. They are showing you the way to succeed in this leadership.
So called Leaders, Super techies and senior obsequious at BDC are least knowledgeable person at this center and they themselve are aware of this fact. Despite this they seek respect and praise. And guess what some does it being sycophant and some do by no other option left. Thanks to god, I am moving on without being belong to any category of sycophancy. To be in their good book you have to praise them, meet them, talk, tea, coffee, butter and what not without any reason otherwise they will make the way for your exit to safeguard themselves. In short, they are wolf in the sheep's clothing.
Well these so called successful people who decides the fate of others in bdc storage. Already their wings are clipped. Most of these so called leaders are now like dogs with their tails between their feet. They are all nervous on when the bell will toll for them and they meet the fate of their foolhardy leader.
my previous job was terrible because I was working and reporting to douchebags directors. So I made extra effort to get to know my manager and his style before joining Dell. Dell is not better than my previous job but my manager is, and of course the pay. For the past year my manager retired and replaced by this devil reincarnate. So definitely move on, it won't be Utopia but will be paid more and if you take the extra effort to check out and choose your future manager and team, it will be better.
If you think you are going to end up in utopia, a company that is way more better than Dell or a director who is just perfect for you, I hate to break it to you, you are mistaken. You will be surprised at how similar most of the companies are, same set of people move around, chances are you will be writing about your new director on this site in a year.
Many of us are of course affected by these stupid evil people. But again it's a two way street. You should not be silent about abuse. Good that the super successful and powerful guy was successfully made to move out adding one more success feather to his crown. BTW I have moved on and serving notice period.
Agree this site is about whining. Don't understand what you gain by whining against such a successful powerful people. Although laid off unceremoniously he might land up as a VP some other company. So just be careful. World is round.
seems a bit whiny isnt it calling people stupid and evil when the real stupid is you guys whinning and still working under and hugely affected by these "stupid and evil" yet successful people. Of course everyone's situation is different but I don't see how whinning about the people that has the upper hand going to help. Either get good and powerful or just shut up and leave.
Hahaha nice satire
That's the folk theory. Maybe this Director in question is following this research finding. The secret to living a long, happy life is to be nasty, unintelligent or a combination of the two, research has found.
As they say you reap what you sow.
with so much hatred towards this director. one wonders why is he still alive.
If any of you know the companies where the James Bond director is sneaking in please make people aware. There are recorded hr cases of abuse which the hiring managers should know.
Attrition in BDC is less because majority are overpaid and underskilled..They won't get equivalent jobs outside.
After their paid vacation BDC Storage Directors and super techies would debrief the team in meetings and all hands. They would say outlandish lies like how they were praised and how great they are that folks in Hopkinton were lining up to meet them and discuss their technical problems for which super techies have solution. Hope all these are stopped now.
in here for fun. You must not be with Dell for long. Some remote managers fly in in the name of relationship building face to face (personaly thinks team building makes more sense since we work with these people from our team and other functions 100x more than that one functional manager) and vacationing with a free tour guide called ypur subordinates. Every VP and directors ever.
Directors from MDC are in town next week. I asked my manager what is the agenda. She is also not clear and said they want to review our projects and create some yearly plan. The answer is not convincing. Why the heck are they coming half way across the world to do a review which they can do through remote. We don't know if they have any agenda or are they just in here to have fun.
Do you seriously have a program manager doing an Admin job?
BDC was a dell entity
is BDC originally Dell or EMC entity. why is it so s---y all of a sudden
I am on notice period now. Once I join, I will share my contact details on last working day
Feel free to send your resume. We have lots of opening for engineers not for super techies & brothers.
Nice acronyms. I know some of the folks in BDC storage and trying to place them in context. Really funny that many of us thought that with the firing of the foolhardy director things would change. But looks like the whole circus bandwagon is still live and kicking in this place.
Guys, please use this platform to help (post jobs link) your colleagues to get out of the BDC (Bengaluru Disco Circus). Since more than a year the show "Destination Circus" is going on and showmen are : Super Vain Techies, Senior Joker Managers and last but not the least CCD (Candy Crush Director) and their accomplices.
Any idea what is the next show?
"They are also good-VMWare"
VMWare major layoff ongoing as I type this week.
LMAO not just fixing.. First fix and then it gets screwed up then revert fix. Life is fun.
Be careful bro. You have to work a lot in these companies. And as u know in bdc it is just no work fix one big once in six months.
They are also good-
Best of luck Java engineer. Make sure you pull us also. Always remember this will be reciprocated.
Following are the companies I am targeting and in various stage of interviews for senior Java engineer role:
Please share other companies and details. We know our bdc storage leadership work and culture is crap. I want to be forward looking and jump ship. Let us use this forum creatively instead of venting out frustrations.
Haha nice to see you all sammys and code coolies abandoning the sinking ship like rats. Run Lola run.
I have discussed this already with many collegues in migration team. Reiterating again.. If you want to leave best time is now. Why. Because all companies hire in first quarter and by end of quarter most vacancies will be filled up. Second quarter job openings will be lesser. If you get good reasonable offer just jump. Forget even this stupid bdc storage even Dell storage itself overall is not doing well. I won't be surprised if massive layoffs are planned.
because great companies tolerate mistakes. The codes were screwed and logically the damage control was put in place, so the lost is not big enough for the higher ups to go to the extent of intervening, and obviously BDC management did a good job lobbying for time and bandwidth for mistakes.
ISG Middle big wig my and which group --server or storage.
Fact: one of ISG « middle-big-wig » is going to Bangalore at the end of january. Definitely smells like layoffs will occur in India at the end of the month ( it occurred every time he was there in the past ).
