Do not understand why managers keep the entire team late to correct ppt formatting issues for a draft... I understand glaring issues, but not minor font discrepancies & not after working 15+hour days

Agree with OP 1000%. Keeping the whole team late is bullshit. Send your requested edits in an email to the responsible person (s). So sick of staying at the client site long past actual client is gone because someone else is working on stuff. There will ALWAYS be things to do and a break/minor reprieve with dinner/working at hotel is vital for maintenance of performance. If a manager doesn't know how to deliver feedback via email and delegate to work offline, that person should not be a manager.

I can't tell if the complaint is about whether formatting is important -- I think it is for final products and drafts are becoming final products. Or if it's about whether it was necessary to stay late -- I have no idea, depends on the situation. Or if it's about keeping extra people around for company -- no on that one.

Depends if a client will see the draft

ATK - let me review your deliverable

@SM1 I'm totally chill.

Typically would agree, but I've also been in situations where this is a necessity for a draft. A few partners I know are way too focused on formatting. If you send them something not formatted they'll be too distracted by that to comment on the content.

Quick poll: List your gender & a quick sentence on whether you like to work for male or female bosses (ok to say no preference). Me personally - Male - I’ve had better experiences working with male managers. I’ve noticed that more female managers feel disadvantaged and try extra hard to prove themselves (incredulous this happens in 2020), but in the process tend to be more demanding and stressful to work with. This is not intended to offend anyone. Just genuinely looking to learn and grow.
