Is there a department or two in your organization that doesn't really mesh with the rest of the organization? Is there one that seems to be a lower quality of people?<br><br>
I find myself in this situation and, since we are a relatively small company, I have to deal with these people all the time. Of the people here who I dislike dealing with, all but one of them is in that department. Its a vital department, but I sure wish we could get better people to staff it.

That would be our Public Information department, and they've made it a dumping ground for folks (engineers) who haven't worked out elsewhere. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I don't mind them, they are pretty funny unintentionally.

I'm the 2nd lowest on my team. I have no power if it doesn't involve the low man on our team and even then I need approval. I think the problem is the diversity of skill sets that we have here. We have software people who do the bulk of the work to produce our product, but then we also have sales people, many of whom have no idea what the code looks like and then we have support which ends up being the in between, they know how to use our software, but they don't know much about how its written.<br><br>
The wide array of skill sets and knowledge bases (and salaries) causes problems, I think.
