I can't possibly be the only person who finds mandatory annual "Insider trading is bad, m'kay?" trainings just a bit fucking insulting, right?
Like, maybe the first one is justified as part of onboarding, sure. Just to make sure the rules are known and clear.
Every year? Are engineers so stupid that we forget after 11 months and need a refresher? Is that who companies believe are writing their mission critical software?
Not aimed at any one company 'cause they all do it. But who thinks this is useful?
@saramg Given how hard it is to hire that many folks, making the 90% who know what they're doing put up with an extra few minutes of redundant training is orders of magnitude less in cost, effort, and frustration.
As frustrating as that redundant training feels.
