You have no idea how bad I want to send this to my managers. Bu if I did, I'm sure the beat down would be hard, fast, and continuous.

This article describes my managers almost perfectly. And not in the good way. We've slowly been heading toward isolation from users and simply being told what, when, and how to do projects for years. This last year we've been excluded from meetings with users regarding project requests as if the new 'project manager' is an expert on all the various systems we maintain.

I suspect the next step will be a complete disconnect from the users and the removal of analyst from our job titles and duties. They can then truly refer to us a "coders".
