Manager...

You’re in the wrong profession. I’m a senior partner, and that is so not my life.

I’ve seen a few partners “work”...define work

anything more than reviewing deliverables and actual hands on keyboard typing content for deliverables is "work" that people who aren't PPEDs shouldn't be doing

I need advice. My current manager is a temp consultant (we’re hiring for a VP of CS- DM me if you know anyone) and she is absolutely awful. She’s condescending, disorganized, she micro manages us, and she doesn’t listen or value our time or respect our work/life balance. I could go on… We’ve lost 2 teams members in the last 2 months (w/ another 2 on the way out, inc myself) because of her poor leadership. Should I send a cry for help? Should I tell the CEO or HR? Or keep it to myself?
