We Bathe in Unicorn Blood, 15 Reasons I.T. Managers are Awesome

5,906 views

Published on

I.T. managers are amongst the most overlooked of office employees - they keep the email running smoothly, the computers up to date and safe from attacks, and the servers cool and happy. Without them, the office would be lost, but they don't receive the plaudits they deserve!

We took to I.T. and network management social network Spiceworks, and asked I.T. professionals to tell us what exactly it was about them that made them so awesome. The answers we got back ranged from the serious to the ridiculous, and at the end of the day it's this sense of humour (and willingness to poke fun at themselves) that makes them truly awesome.

I.T. Managers, take a bow.

We Bathe in Unicorn Blood, 15 Reasons I.T. Managers are Awesome

  1. 1. presents why i.t guys are awesome awesome As told by some awesome I.T guys
  2. 2. 1. We put up with a lot p po So yeah, uhm, my step son's cousin's best friend has a problem with his iPad…i’ll just leave it with you and pick it up in 20. rn p or poorn n porn rn Despite all the crap we get from users, we still fix their computers. Despite all the crap we get from management, we still fix the servers. Despite all the crap we get from directors, we still fix their step son's cousin's iPad. We're not appreciated but we still do a damn good job. -Christaffa
  3. 3. 2. We can read minds IT’S BROKEN! IT’S BROKEN! IT‘S BROKEN! IT’S BROKEN! YOUR CAPS LOCK IS ON... IT’S FIXED! What makes us so awesome is being able to read users' minds when they come up and tell me that "My computer is broken", when they really mean "I can't log in because I've typed my password wrong” -DailyLlama
  4. 4. 3. We fix problems just by looking at them So, basically, after i’ve logged in, I go to export, select PDF and then it doesn’t ...ah...wait, it seems to be working now. I hate you. You're welcome [We can] fix a "problem" by simply standing behind the user when they show you the "problem". You get a pause, then the response "oh... it's working now" or "... I hate you it’s working now!" -Michael1984
  5. 5. 4. We’re bi. bi-lingual. I was doing this on whatchamecallit, then clicked on this doohickey and then it did the thingy and then this error came up any idea what's , wrong!? Yes. Yes i do. Being able to converse in all languages by using our advanced mental abilities. -SGJim
  6. 6. 5. We’re like special forces defrag grenade lan mine finger of death Maybe you can compare I.T pros to the special forces of the work place. We prevent bad stuff from happening by timely interventions and you generaly dont see us. But when s**t hits the fan we sweep in, solve the problem often going beyond the call of duty so that everybody else can keep on doing an optimal job. -Bart894
  7. 7. 6. We know we’re awesome… And that makes us awesome. Go to my 127.0.0.1 and I’ll give you sudo access? And that will fix it? awww yea... Well, clearly WE know we're awesome. The problem is that many (most?) users don't understand what we do, and so think we're just waiting for them to give us something to do. And then there's those that think we're just an expensive cost to the company... *sigh* -Jeff2262
  8. 8. 7. It's simple: we were all born this way What makes us awesome? It's simple we were all born this way ;) Seriously though it's the fact we can do all the above and still enjoy what we do, it's not getting jaded by the task ahead but looking forward to finding a solution. OK we don't get all the appreciation, but we at least get to have a good mental exercise when solving problems (unless the end user has forgotten a password). - Geist
  9. 9. 8. Bacon? Bacon. - Slemmen
  10. 10. 9. Personal hygiene Science Fact. most it Professionals have beards so they have less face to wash. Our outstanding social skills and personal hygiene! And that we generally conduct ourselves in a highly professional manner, work hard, and don't let it get to us that no matter what we do it still isn't good enough or fast enough for our users. I need some ice-cream. - Facepalm
  11. 11. 10. Dedication 192.168.2.1 sweet 192.168.2.1 I always have a smile no matter how incredibly ignorant some users can be. I’m Always pleasant and ready to help at a moment’s notice. 60+ hour weeks to make sure everything gets done to ensure minimal disruption for everyone in the company. In at 5:50 AM (EDT) today just to start moving a user over to a new desktop so I don't interrupt their normal work schedule...dedication. - Macgyverated
  12. 12. 11. Multitasking We multitask, collaborate, investigate, negotiate, compromise... all for the sake of the people we work for. We know we're awesome, they don't, but that's OK. - Pdestefanis
  13. 13. 12. You want the short answer? *shazam* *flick * We're electron magicians. At least that's the short answer. - Matt_P
  14. 14. 13. We’re always learning finally after 72 hours, i now know everything there is to know about AwesomeApp v1.2 v1.2 is so literally yesterday, here’s the stuff through on v2 We are often (medical folks being an exception) the only people in the organisation that have to constantly re-educate ourselves, absorb and understand entirely new technology and information, and stay on top of a rapidly changing and evolving aspect of the business. We constantly have to learn new things just to do our jobs and protect the company's data and ability to function. -Christaffa
  15. 15. 14. Resourcefulness ..And that will fix your overheating problem. We can't just educate ourselves on IT and be done. We have to understand a decent amount about sales and marketing, accounting, finance, inventory management, HR, etc. We are most often quite literally the single most resourceful people in the company, yet few, if any, other employees recognize that. - Macgyverated
  16. 16. 15. WE BATHE IN UNICORN BLOOD -MitchellTorres
