Why it sucks to be the IT guy (infographic)

12 Jan 2013

Let’s face it, for most of us at work, we’d be unable to complete our jobs without our IT guy (or girl, if you will). A new infographic takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the challenges these workers face.

The infographic by ORSYP Software that’s published on Visual.ly outlines the things that make it suck to be the IT guy.  For starters, there’s the nerd stereotype, then add on the many responsibilities involved in the IT guy’s job, the things they have to hear from their colleagues, and the types of co-workers they have to contend with.

So please spare a thought for your IT guy if you happen to be a talker, lazy user, wild downloader or over-anxious worrier who says things like, “my machine is soooo slow” or “I just downloaded something from Kenya”.
