Is IT ageist?

My experience is that IT is ageist.

Why do I say this?

Two reasons:
  • Staff are expected to learn about the new programming languages and new analysis techniques even if they are managers
  • During redundancy exercises which involve scoring often technical skills are used to determine an overall score in a redundancy pool of all staff below senior managers
