Re: Elephant in the room

Posting from a former civil servant who using to work at Spy Central*.

For engineering & IT, you got a basic income (Hr bod / Manager HR bod/ etc) + Technology extra income.

This equated to ~mid market rate.

However, every ~9 years, a hr or beancounter would reset the Technology extra income to zero for all. Although you wouldn't lose any money, you would be marking time. Usually the bright bods would leave (especially the single ones). After 3 years (and probably the hr/beancounter has moved on), management will pick up on the fact that engineering & IT are haemorrhaging staff, so put back the Technology extra income.
