Value your customer's needs or your employees sanity/ mental wellness?
The company I work for clearly value the customer more and I feel that it's not aligned to my personal values :(

So today, 2 of my new hires (9 weeks in) said that they don't like 9am meetings. We have 30mins sprints every Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. And the comment came up as I mentioned the idea of collaborating with a stakeholder on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9am.

During a meeting on Micro-Aggressions, in which most example comments were about appearance, the teams concluded that using Video cameras in meetings was more inclusive and helped with community.

I don’t have a horse in this fight
