During a weekly status call, a US based manager in my organization stated “the recruiters need to find fewer candidates with English as a second language” in reference to the fact that we just hired a person of Indian heritage. We are a global company and about 1/3rd of our employees are from outside of the US/UK. I reported the manager to HR along with several other times that he has acted in a racist manner.

You UXers will especially get a kick out of this. My CD said this about our new agency site this morning: "I don't want it to look like a website. I don't want it to feel like a website."
God help me get out of here.
My last firm there was this manager who was 45 and divorced who didn't not give 2 shts about his job
He would come in at 10, leave at 11, not return until 4p, and then leave at 5pm
When he would come back at 4pm, his hair would either be wet and he'd proudly say he went swimming or his hair would be shorter and he'd equally as proudly say he got a haircut
I have too many stories about this guy until one day he just up and quit with no notice bc he hated his job

Colleague to me in regards to a department meeting our boss set up “I don’t think I can join this zoom meeting, I’m trying to socially distance myself from you guys”

I’m not thanking anybody — this sucks!”
