90% of managers are hands on and awesome, pick up the slack when needed! But that 10% that sit there with nothing to do asking you where everything is at once.. common that doesn't motivate anyone!

@SM1 can you talk to my manager and let her know that waiting 6-8 months after pushing team to review things is a little long?

Of course. Some managers are terrible, just like some staff and seniors are terrible. Some senior managers are also terrible. Surprise!

That is fair. I hounded a team today for stuff and they crushed me with deliverables. I got through 60% and will finish rest tomorrow. Waiting longer than 24-48 hours after pushing a team isn't acceptable.

Asking where "everything" is makes me believe its late and there was no communication to the manager. If I'm asking you for an update, that's what I need, not for you to drop everything to do a rush job. Maybe if there was better communication, that manager could pick up the slack.

Trust me that is not the problem.

Anyone else experiencing texting fatigue during the pandemic? I love my friends, but after a full day on zoom calls the last thing I want to do is talk or text about the minutiae of everyday life. I feel like once a week or every couple of days is a happy medium for me. I know my friends mean well and they’re great, but the constant texting is wearing me out! Curious if other people feel this way?

Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.

My mother-in-law passed away 2 weeks ago (not Covid and somewhat unexpected). I work in a small, tight knit group or so I thought. I let them all know through email and got the obligatory "sorry for your loss", but since then we received no other acknowledgement. When other team members had parents pass I've always sent flowers or donated to the cause they requested. This is bothering me more than it probably should. Should I say anything or just let it go?
