    Lol... ... velle or not here comes an update on makemyhobby: y'day my order status changed to 'Processing' and a comment go added which says 'handed over for shipping'. I am almost beginning to think that the order status changes to match the cadence of my updates here.

    I used to work in the development side too, and now have graduated to a more technical individual contributor type of role.

    Rgds,

    Seems to me they've implemented ERP software from SAP or BAAN. These kinds of order status depictions happen in ERP. :lol: They must've used up all their money in the implementation and have nothing left for a telephone connection. :wink:

    @pkshima,
    an individual contributor is typically expected to come up with & drive product related work by himself / herself...could be applied to dev, qa or more strategic

    hmmm thats interesting. Most of the companies I know of use the term individual contributor for someone who is (just another) member of the team as opposed to tech leads, architects, project leads and managers.

    Was Googling online for other experiences from this site and found this thread. Looks like they screw up a lot of orders. I'm an aquarium enthusiast and had a terrible experience with them:

    Not only did they send me dead plants but missed items all together. I had a pending order with them and escalated it to Paypal and got my money back. But for the missing items, no update from them at all.
