IBM about 25 years behind Cannot Stand Continuity

My Line Manager told me one of the reasons I wasn't getting a pay rise was because I had shown no "ambition" to move from Desktop Support to another client or role - never mind that I was happy where I was, liked the people I worked with and supported and was the only one left who actually knew and understood the Client's setup (as proven when said Line Manager suggested replacing half-a-dozen water-damaged almost-new Engineering Computing PCs with a few of the ancient finance pieces of junk we had sat on the shelves after a pipe burst in the ceiling void...).

I guess if everyone had moved into Project or Development teams then we could have charged the clients a lot more without having to actually show any results at all - just like most of "our" staff on that client's sites.
