"Well - the penalty for being really good at support is that, in general, you never get promoted away from support.

Most places I've worked, the way to get promoted is to go out drinking with the Right People."

So So True !!!

The worse thing you can do is to be 'Very Good' at your job and require minimal management WHILE also being invisible at the regular 'Boozy Networking'.

You get stuck in the job you do so well, more or less part of the furniture :(

Get visible and promote yourself and how good you really are !!!

Also beware the 'Office Politics', visibility attracts people who want your job and worse. !!!

[From experience gained too later :) ]
