    I used to have a book on IT careers a long time ago. It warned against going in to middle management-type roles. Mostly because when cuts come, those are the first to go and the company realizes that the company runs just as good without them. Over time, though, the company forgets that
    and hires more middle management.

    At ZDS we called that the "Chief to Indian ratio." When money is good, they added levels of middle management. More or less they had some mid level folk that had been around forever, and would fill the middle areas with them depending on their skill sets

    Ever since the passing of the civil rights act, HR and Middle
    management have been becoming larger and bloated. This is due to the vagueness of the act and generally because a lot of modern jobs are useless.

    That's all part of the "Woke-ification" (as you could term it today) of
    the companies.

    The Ignorant Elitists are, by and large, complete morons and useless. If
    left to themselves, they'd have dead end jobs flipping burgers.

    So certain groups started making it easier for these Ignorant Elitists to get and keep jobs. So a company hires someone, but he doesn't work out. Can't just get rid of him because of the cost (yes, I have worked in places
    where the incompetant kept their jobs just because it was too costly
    to get rid of them). What to do? Well, move them into HR and Middle Management.
    Oh, then they pushed more rules on companies that made things like HR
    more powerful - even though they were filled with complete morons.

    I like that word and am going to have to commandeer it for my next
    conversation with a snowflake. That should tick them off.

    Not to be contentious, but can you define an "Ignorant Elitist"?
    Not sure I understand based on your usage.

    in places where the incompetant kept their jobs just because it was too costly to get rid of them). What to do? Well, move them into HR and Middle Management.

    I worked at a plastics manufacturing company and when I started they
    had just promoted the lead accountant to the head of HR. This
    person was a very good worker. After 14 years, she was still the
    head of HR. In charge of all hiring and helping with employee
    benefits for 4 plants in the US.

    Not sure if she was the exception to the rule, but she really helped
    employees in the company. She helped me numerous times and I
    respected her. She never put rules into effect just to be a tyrant.

    Just my opinion.

    Correct, HR has been the dump for unproductive and moronic workers so they will not disturb the work. Seems to backfire since they ARE the managenment after all. This is why if you want to become a manager, be a moron.
