Depends on what they have, what they/you are trying to a achieve, what you are comfortable with.

Very True, I like that saying. "The musician matters more than the instrument".

To add to the head of PMs advice:

I’d also consider the other folks that are involved as well in terms of how deeply you want them using the tool, what tasks you want them taking on and all that.

I usually operate under the general assumption that the more complex the tool the less likely you are to get creative and dev/production folks adopting and becoming regular users.

That's a good point, the learning curve on a new tool can sometimes derail the engagement, especially when the main focus is getting the tasks completed.

Hi all! So I'm almost done probation at my job... But today I found out the new hire who joined a month after me got fired...

So I'm extremely EXTREMELY stressed out... Because my manager openly told me this is what him and the VP will review with regards to my performance... (1)

Curious how many PMs here have ADHD? Just had my performance review and it was (paraphrasing) “you’re really good at your job, super organized & detail oriented, empathic & check in on the work and the people, but you have to not talk like you have ADHD” I’m already on the highest dosage of meds possible and I don’t think they realize how much of an effort it is already to try to avoid talking like I have ADHD as much as I do currently and it’s still not enough. Feeling demoralized.

In the current company I work for, it seems like in order to get promoted, you need to not only do what's within your job description well, but also do things that are past your job description so that they see your interest & understanding of other avenues, and THEN they'll promote you to a management role. Is that the standard way of getting promoted in all fields? Doing your job plus more until youre promoted to just do the 'more'?
