I suggest giving very direct feedback. Sit her down and say plainly "When you called me the other day about that deliverable, it was frustrating to me as a manager, and here's why ________. I'm letting you know this, because I want you to do well here, and I thought you should know that this is how our culture is, and it may not be well received by other people in the firm if you do that in the future. Does that make sense? What are your thoughts about this feedback?"

Glad you are introspective enough to see that. Remember that one day those "junior" people may have to have your back one day! Develop talent and help them shine. You'll rise with them. It's all a firm has to sell. Lose the hierarchical mentality and think about someone besides yourself and I think you'll be surprised at the result on both ends.

Had you been waiting for something from the intern, you would probably had done the same thing. I feel bad for that intern having to work for you.

See that manager? I don't call you names and you call me a fucktard. You are one of those people who like to pull rank and respect because of your title. You don't deserve it. You are a clog blocking productivity. Look in the mirror at your ineptitude.

Lots of age. Very little wisdom. Ugly as hell.

OP give your intern a break geez. It's an internship for godsake why are you making their life miserable.

OP seems irrationally angry, probably because he/she can't get his/her shit done on time. What you should have done is a) had your shit done on time or at least b) told your intern to go home and you would take care of integrating the rest since you're the hold up. Instead you sound like a rude, entitled POS with no business managing other people. There is nothing wrong with the intern calling you at 6:30pm to follow up on your deliverable - it means she's on top of it. I hope that intern starts interviewing elsewhere so she never has to work with you again.

Collecting status reports is bad enough as-is. Dealing with your attitude seems unbearable. I'm just glad my first PMO manager gave me advice/permission to stick a huge "DID NOT RECEIVE" on reports from slackers.

Lol I hated your kind when I was on some awful PMO gig compiling status reports. Sometimes I'd have to wait until like 830pm before I got all of 'em. Sigh.

Ooh. Talking out of my ass. Accenture has an interesting manager. I mean mis-manager. Your team hates you and you know you are not good at your job. Your communication skills are beyond poor and that lit like a fire when I pointed out.

I pity people who report to you and feel their pain. Hope you get laid off. I have solidarity for others who are good and got axed. People like you should get axed regardless of your numbers.

"Pecking order" really? This isn't a barn yard. Also have an ounce of respect for your intern. You sound like a little weasely fucker. A good leader works by empowering others and understanding is a component of that. Also, look to yourself instead of blaming others.

I can't believe someone calling someone at 6:30pm is generating so much discussion. It's not like they called 10 times and were pleading to go home, they just wanted to know what's up and when they can expect stuff so they can plan their evening. When do you want your intern to call you? 11pm? Intern 1 Manager 0.

Hi ladies!
I have a lovely friend who is a junior writer, she doesn’t have any full time agency experience because life got in the way of things after we graduated college. Now two years later I’m well into my career but she’s feeling stuck and keeps interviewing and getting ghosted. I’m afraid she’s going to give up. Is there anyone who’d be willing to talk to her? She’s a lovely, strong, outspoken gal who is passionate. Just needs someone to give her a chance. Much love ❤️
