Well, I was "told" that in the new format, I would now be both OO and OI. For those of you who don't understand this acro-speak, OI is Opportunity identifier, and used to refer to the Sales Relationship person who called on the client, and identified opportunities. OI referred to Opportunity Owner, the person back at the office who would take the Opportunity through the onerous processes in-house, and develop a Statement of Work which would then be presented to the client for signature, or not.
So, not some dimwit has decided that both these responsibilities would be done by one person. This comes with it's own problems, but that's for another post.
So, after management had taken a week to have a selection review, thus losing a week with which we had to respond to the RFP, I was tasked with doing the OO bit. And I did, and I got the complete response through the system in a week. Delivered to the client today! On time! Now why the fuck does it take the rest of the business 2 - 6 weeks to do the same piece of work?
I'll tell you why. Because unlike me, who depends on winning the business to earn some commission, the rest of those dumb fucks back at the office get their full pay every month, so there is no pressure on them. They get paid if they perform or not. And, like for me, they know there is fuckall that can be done to them. No one could even dare try to fire their fucking slack arses!!!
Now, for my next trick......
