Saw this on Reddit this morning, good thing I grabbed it before it got deleted just like this Sr. Manager’s career.
Text of the original post transcribed below:
I’m a Manager, a Sr. Manager is leaving me profanity / border line insulting review comments – what to do.
First time working with this guy and i am getting review comments like “this is fucking garbage” – referring to a sentence. Or things like “JFC how many times are we going to mention XXX”, and multiple f bombs or things insulting my work, or implying i am making a huge error when its just completely overblown.
This seems unneeded and almost hostile. I am pretty confused on what to do, should i just ask him to stop? should i go to our boss? he has been a pretty big dick to me the entire time for really no reason.
Also i am 7 months into this firm, hes been there 6 years now (spent 5 as a manager before finally being promoted to Sr. Manager, so i suspect our bosses know hes not the best).
Guys, I know we yammer on all the time about how desperate firms are and I did say “you could probably take a dump on the senior manager’s office right now if you wanted” and won’t get fired because that’s how desperate they are but come on, let’s be professionals here.
Then again…apparently making workpapers look like the text chat of a heated Overwatch lobby is not a fireable offense according to OP’s edit/update so hey, dump away I guess. 💩
