    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know what you are managing. I was a web designer on placement and now working part time as a junior web designer. I'm not allowed on the same rate as the other one, my bosses are paid even more - all sounds normal. But it is me who manages our teams work load, me who trains the 'senior' designer. I mange the printing side of things as well and if there are any problems it comes back on me and my head. - Plus the head of department doesn't have a clue about the department they are managing.
