That's likely very true, unfortunately.

When recruiters and HR folks care more about full buzzword compliance, and less about accomplishments, you can expect high weirdness in the work place.

I bet I could put 'Emmy' on my resume (legit) and because it isn't one of the buzzwords they're expecting, I'd be passed over.

Yeah, well when you're the guy who is cleaning the mess, it fucking matters.

Hm, now that I think of it, this happened to me a couple of years ago.

Hotshot wrote stuff in Python without any input from anyone else, to include failing to integrate it with the rest of the product. When I asked him about configuring his tool, he said, "Oh, just call this REST interface here."

"You realize no other part of our system does this, and we don't have the infrastructure to make that happen, right?"

That code is currently rotting in our git repo. We couldn't even move forward with it.

We do, however, have plans to write it again, but according to a dev process.

"but according to a dev process"

One that involves talking and thinking? Wow.

The team has shrunk, so it requires far less communication than in times past.

That's called "Service Oriented Architecture" and HOW DARE YOU question the importance of putting that on his resume, even though it screwed up the entire project?

Oh, I'm too wise to allow someone to screw up an entire project if I'm responsible for that project.

He only managed to mess up his part.

SOA is dead. It's all about "Serverless" code now.
