Rampant incompetence

It used to be rare for someone's position to greatly exceed his or her competence. Today, incompetence no longer surprises me at all. Working here has been reduced to daily dealings with very self-confident mediocrities. How do you deal with... —  read more 

Additional work

The general advice that everyone shares: set the boundaries and don't let them put more on your plate. However, how feasible is it in reality? My opinion is that it is pretty difficult to do. I'm interested in how much more work you do now compared... —  read more
