The 'Why It Sucks to be the IT Guy' infographic reveals some of the funny but quite stereotypical personas often associated with techies.
Most companies have an Information Technology department, which most employees usually call mainly for technical difficulties like viruses or frozen computers, even though their tasks are more widespread than that. Simple problems can be solved over the phone, which means most employees and IT personnel probably never even see each other face to face, but that doesn't mean the employee hasn't assigned a visual character to associate with the IT guy they just spoke to. Characters like Geek Chic Nerdsters, the CSI Genius, the Nerd Hermit and the Star Trek Niche Nerds, are only some of the few commonly imagined stereotypes and why it sucks to be the IT guy.
