Security At Work Tried To Flex Their Muscle On Coworker
Posted 10 May 2017 - 05:00 AM
This coworker is on the short list to be promoted to Fellow this year and is in communication with several VP's and our CEO almost nightly to discuss his progress on some very hot issues. He is very vocal and crazy smart.
Once HR got involved, he went over the top. He wrote an email to the head of security, Director of HR, our VP and his boss. He spelled out the problems with security processes in our building and how HR should handle it. He made a list of action items and assigned them to security and HR. He went on to explain that they could fire him if they want (our VP told him that will NOT happen). He went on to say that if they try to put a black mark in his file or do anything else to reprimand him...he will leave and go work elsewhere.
The low level HR woman started emailing him and not copying the other people. He would copy all of them when he responded. The coworker was even more mad off now. He reached out to people he knows at other high tech companies and already had a lunch interview with several from one place. The VP of HR called him to tell him there will not be any black mark in his employee file and there will not be ANY note in his file about this.
This could end up bad for a bunch of people if this coworker leaves the company over this. Everyone goes to this guy when they are stuck and need help. There is no part of anything we do here that he cannot do....and that is why the CEO and the VP's all know him and talk to him. He gets the hard problems fixed!
Life is short, enjoy it!

This sounds a great deal like the security guards at the warehouse I work at. They try to act so intimidating and they don't realize that we are all under a lot of pressure. I worked security at another warehouse and tried to understand the fact that the employees we were trying to protect did not have an easy job. The security company that I worked for and the one that works at the warehouse I'm currently at are supposed to smile and greet you with a smile and a "good morning", but they stand there like they are uncomfortable and greet you with a grimace and a grunt. We have to walk through metal detectors on our way out of the facility and yes, I understand they have to be on their guard to make sure no one is trying to walk out with merchandise, but at the same time, this place hasn't had any new hires in almost four months, so if we were a problem, we would have been out of there a long time ago. These guards also have to realize that they are not police officers, and they do not carry weapons, so standing their all scary-like is not in their job description. Sorry to rant about that, it's just been on my mind for a while lol

And that is one of the big points my coworker made. Security needs to fix their process.

Next thing I know, the tech manager came down and asked me how i could get them done so fast. I told her, you don't have to do all the loop de loops, that you all said I had to do, just to input them. She was stunned, as was the other system operators. I mean seriously! It's a sad state of affairs, when a person who is computer illiterate, can do what i did and it not occur to a techies, to do the same.
