Turns out it wasn't worth the security benefits to shut all of the engineers out of every possible permission level, because someone from IT is basically spending all day typing administrator passwords into our computers to let us do our jobs
@baronnarcveldt Jesus that's rough. my work laptop has some crazy security spyware, but at least I'm an admin on the machine I guess
it's like our ceo is richard nixon. she basically thinks everyone else in the company is trying to fuck her over and steal all of the company's secrets and sell them to a competitor
@baronnarcveldt I understand the instinct, but there won't be any secrets to steal if people can't get shit done
yeah, and we all know the problem; she inherited the job from her dad, but she is an accountant by trade, not a businessperson. so she runs the company like a spreadsheet and treats her employees like data points
@baronnarcveldt lol infosec gone awry
lol yeah. the ceo is super paranoid. she needs us to engineer low cost solutions, but won't let us see costs or prices ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
@baronnarcveldt that is really funny to me, a person who gets to set privileges because no one else here knows how to use a computer
@SanfordianPhil @baronnarcveldt true story, I once had to ask a coworker to stop looking at porn via remote desktop because it was getting logged, and could he please at least do it from his own desktop instead (stopping didn't seem to be on the table)
I lied when I said once, I actually had to ask the same guy twice
