If you work in corporate IT, I'd just like to offer you this hint: I hate you. In fact everybody hates you. Apart from hackers.
As someone who used to work in corporate IT, and was put in charge of making an image before I would like to say don't blame the IT person who made the image. Here's a little story on why images act like crap, and its not the IT techs fault.
When I was tasked with making an image I made one that booted very fast(under 30 seconds, and this was over 9 years ago), and honestly was extremely responsive, but the IT director forced me to install a pile of garbage most of which no one even used anymore. After I installed what the director wanted the boot time of the computer went from 30 seconds to 4+ minutes... Responsiveness also plummeted to behaving like I was trying to run windows 95 on a 386sx with 4 gigs of ram (which btw was possible as I did it for fun).
After that I was the one that had to deal with all the complaints about how unresponsive the systems were, and how they ran like crap cause hey I made the image, and it was my fault not the person in charge who forced changes. I then went and made another clean image not showing it to the director this time, and installed the bare minimum, and only installed what users needed by department, not the typical full of crap for every department image.
I ended up making the users happy, but in the end got written up months down the line when a tech went and reported it to be a dick as he saw some things were missing from one of the pc's as the user couldn't figure out how to turn it on, and reported that it was broken.
For the record the IT director refused to use the default image cause he hated how slow it was...
