Sounds like a normal day of development and QA for most people.

All of that is pretty ordinary for me, except for a Starbucks run! I remember the CIO at a previous job leaned into my cube at 7:30 one morning and asked me if I wouldn't "be a dear" and make coffee and bring it, along with full coffee service, into the conference room where he was having a meeting.

I'm not a secretary and I don't even know where they keep that rolling cart and the pretty cups for a "full coffee service", so I shot an e-mail off to the CIO's admin asst and asked her to please fulfill that particular request.

I'm not "too good" to fetch the odd cup of coffee for someone, especially if I'm already getting one for myself...but...really?

I'm going through a SOC 2 audit right now. My biggest problem is all of the repetative questions that they can't seem to correlate in the simple little minds. I haven't found any auditors that can seem to master that "little" problem nor have I found many that come close to auditor requirements expressed in AT101.5

My big concern is how much the Managing Partner will cry when he sees how much of his bonus goes to taxes. He is definitely making bonus this year.

I had to go through SOX audits at my last job, and most of the time the auditors were 20-somethings right out of college with zero experience in database design or SQL. I'd often get code copied and pasted from the web with a request to 'run this and send me the output in Excel'. Often times the code was from SQL 2000 or a couple of times not even MS SQL. Then we'd get requests for screenshots because they never knew how to ask for what they needed. Screen shots don't easily show securities through roles and so forth, but hey whatever to make them happy at the end of the day I guess.
