Not everyone has a good boss or management! In my experience, upper management often prefers to shoot the easy target like low/mid-level IT, rather than tackle the real issues.

 

Why I document everything and periodically offload the documentation.I have learned a long time ago to CYA.

 

That means nothing. what if that person is 1 step above your boss?  things can always change.

 

Missed where I said on Page 2 that the only people I am interested in is keeping the directors/VPs happy?  Anyone else I am not worried about.  If I have a problem with an employee, I will talk to my boss and in turn he will talk to their boss and get it resolved.  And I don't go out of my way to ###### anyone off.

This would work in a structured organization with a hierarchy of management. But for a smaller company? Or an outsourced IT person? It would be completely different. The question from the OP is becoming too vague to answer universally.
