The worst of both worlds...

...being the one man band at an SME which is bought by a larger company. Your local managers (normal bods, not IT people) expect you to deliver the same service as before but the new owners insist on you following all the complexities their procedures introduce, and you have to work out which helpdesk to ring for which part of the system as often a team introduces a policy that borks another part of the system and its a nightmare getting anyone else to see the overall picture.
