Yep, that's a pretty wild ride. The vast majority of managers and
supervisors I met during my working life were sociopaths, psychotics, bullies,
or just simply incompetent. I can only recall one who was really worth working
for. His manager fired me so as to get a project cancelled, and then corporate
fired him. My supervisor quit and went working in the electrical department of
a Lowe's. The project did not get cancelled, and it was pretty tricky trying
to measure phase linearity in a dual conversion receiver. They ended up making
six of them.
The manager who was fired ended up running the pro shop at a golf course,
which went bust later.
