a typical day, was resolving one "emergency" after another, being paged overhead constantly; addressing the IT issues of the end users. Additionally responsible for on-going projects due to a complete upgrade of all IT technologies. including upgrading and maintaining the IT network and all IT Systems, desktops, servers, phones, and Medical IT Systems with the help of an under-qualified support staff of 3 people. I reported to the CIO, who although I felt was a good executive, wasn't a very good day-to-day Manager, and left me to make most of the day-to-day decisions without any management or supervisory authority.
