If they’re a senior they can prepare some shit. If they’re a manager they can DR some shit. Hierarchy is great for 11 months out of the year. Right now stuff just needs to get done.

I agree with EY2. Sure managers can detail review but if the staff or senior is not ready for detail review then what can I do? Staying late for appearance makes no sense. Manager can assist prepare if the deadline is that urgent but then the SM needs to be aware that they need to detail it :-/

You really need to show both sides. Show that you are willing to work hard but then also set and example by leaving when you know you aren’t productive. For example I know on Friday’s I’m not productive after 3:00 so I’ll leave by 3:30, but then put in time where it matters too

like

Also, make sure you leave time for yourself too

Realistically, what do you want the person to do if their work is finished or not yet ready to be reviewed by them? Sit there all evening and watch you work? As long as the person is available for questions, I don’t see why they would need to stay late to babysit the staff.

I’m a manager, not above direct preparation...then SM directs review. Usually a pretty quick review and when a manager prepares
