Senior Managers and Partners: What would you think of a manager that performs well by all measures (though doesn’t necessarily exceed all expectations, but smokes weed just about every night to unwind? Would it be an issue when it comes to deciding on a promotion?

Maybe anecdotal, but Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson and Woody Harrelson would be toast if weed were bad for you! 😂 For that matter, half of the world would have issues! I would rather someone I love smoke weed than drink alcohol which can be far more destructive! As I said SM1, serious psychiatric disorders have to be rare since I haven’t heard nor seen a single instance of this reported in the news or in my personal experience. And thank you, I will continue to imbibe occasionally. No skin off my back if you continue to spread misinformation and your prudish ideals! Ey 3 - while I will entertain the possibility that your friend was driven crazy by his weed habit, it is equally a possibility that they were taming their crazies with the weed all along and as with many medications, it lost efficacy. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? My own feeling is that it can offer comfort and calm if used occasionally and has fewer side effects than pharmaceuticals used for the same purpose.

How would your SMs and partners know? Why would you ever tell this to them or discuss this with them? Unless it affects your performance, I wouldn’t care. I also would rather not know.

So you want to possibly deny a promotion due to a possible medical condition? That would be my thought process. Otherwise how would they know what it’s for.

After getting promoted in Feb 2020 (lol fml) I designed and implemented a significant piece of data infrastructure that is beyond what’s expected of someone at my level. In 2021, I was not recognized for this accomplishment and a guy who knows nothing about the technology was promoted over me. It’s been a year since his promotion & the wheels are starting to come off: others are becoming increasingly aware of his ineptitude. What’s the best way to subtly pour gasoline on this fire?

Hi everyone! I am promoting my NFT collection with an Instagram page, but I have some doubts regarding IG algorithm. As far as I know, replying to comments etc increases visibility, as it looks like it has more interaction. However, I have many bots that automatically comments immediately every post telling me to DM them for promotion. How should I treat them? Should I reply something, or ignore them or block them? Not sure how IG algorithm would evaluate interacting with bots
