I began looking for a job when the current manager "owned" all the processes,
all the interesting tasks, and refused to upgrade any software because it had
to be "studied" before any of the writers could be allowed to use it. BTW, the
software had been in the manager's office for nearly seven months by the time I
left.

I found much the same things that Steve Arrants did when he responded to Maury
King's message, but am inclined to think it has more to do with the downsizing
that's gone on over the past few years. Not once have deadlines or workload
been lightened simply because a few people left (in one case it was 10% of the
workforce). Everyone works VERY long hours simply to keep their heads above
rapidly rising waters.
