  • All of it is mainframe based. None of that pretty front-end stuff people are dazzled with.
  • We don’t touch PROD under any normal circumstances. I wish we didn’t touch PROD under any circumstances.
  • No new development — that’s done by development teams. We’re a maintenance team.
  • No database management to include Lotus Notes (the skillset in question). Thankfully there’s DBAs that handle it.
  • Crusty old developers (including me) that really don’t care to learn new stuff.
