Given the lightning strikes the guy there knew enough to not raise it above his head.
I find that companies in such predicaments must work their way though it. Only after they are on the verge of collapsing or a wholesale management change can you do them any good.
But today I'm finding less need for a high powered PC on the front end. It's tough to sell the move to a protected server room and if it's that dire, maybe the cloud is the answer. Who knows how many more toasted careers will be taken by this company.
There's a lot of lessons to be learned at that company. Mostly to steer clear of them till their management learns a few more.
If you ever decide you want a job a bit futher out in the country, fresh air, all that, something with a bit of challenge.
Or, maybe you know someone who is really desperate, and you don't particularly like, LOL.
