    Another potential might be Salesforce Automation. Haven't used it myself but know other parts of our business are leveraging it.

    I did some googling and talked to some other more programming savvy friends as well. The problem was that I knew what I wanted, but didn't know what it was called. Workflow wasn't on my radar. With that little nugget, I found a few pieces that I can slap-dash together to make something that will work it seems. Now just need to test and get it rolled out for our most frequent problematic forms, and go from there.

    The part that really gets me is that he almost never asks questions. He just carries on doing things wrong making up random shit and then gives it to me for review. Then I look at it and wonder, why didn't you ask me about this while you were working on it? You left this big blank space devoid of information so clearly you knew something needed to happen but you didn't consider asking what should go there? What the fuck?
    Update: When the pandemic hit our company furloughed low hanging fruit asap. Turns out this guy had been sitting around putting 80-90% of his time on "training" because he didn't know what else to do and never asked anyone to give him work. After a summer furlough he was permanently fur-long-gone.

    Let me know if you guys start hiring, and need someone to cover the work he was doing. I have those skills.

    After getting a pretty decent review this year I found out I got no raise. I asked my manager about it and he said that he thought I was doing a good job but "decisions above his pay grade" prevented him from getting me a raise this year (no idea what that means).

    Today I got this bit of swag in the mail from my company:

    I guess my company sells irony now.

    I had the same thing happen. Highest possible performance ratings, no raise. It was expected, though. Intuit said they wouldn't be handing out any raises in 2020 due to financial uncertainty or whatever, but in return, there would be absolutely no layoffs.

    Then they did a layoff anyway a month later. I lost two coworkers.

    I'm pretty fucking salty about it.

    We didn't have layoffs, but they did hold off on raises. Now we've had 7 consecutive record months, are busy as hell, but still holding back on raises because of "uncertainty". We've had record profits for 7 straight months! What's uncertain about that?

    I did my reviews, and did some math based on the wage growth pool they gave me 2 years ago and laid out what I wanted to give me people. I handed it to my boss two weeks ago and now she's hiding from me. Good times.

    I didn't even experience it and *I'm* salty about it.
