I worked with a guy, at a household name company, who would go out into the “atrium” where there were big soft chairs and nap every day. Like his head is back snoring every day. Anyone In the hallway on that side of the building, or on any of the other floors in the atrium, could see him. People let it slide because he was the only guy who knew how some old mainframe system worked. Doesn’t answer the question, just anecdotal.

Thanks folks. I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know her personally but didn’t want her to get in trouble so I “dropped” my backpack.

You didn’t drop your backpack on her face/head, did you?

In the room with you? In a cube or office? How well do you know them?

If you know them well and it is obvious, I would find a way to gently wake them (bump slightly with a book, etc). If they are in another room, I would drop by. Then at some point enquire how they are doing and if they are getting enough sleep. There are many reasons why someone might be exhausted.

If I do not know them and they are not in the same room, then I would ignore the issue or if it disruptive, bring it up to someone who does know them.

Let them sleep. A lot of older c-level people do it with success. Wake up at the exact moment they need to. Set up a time before lunch or when they are more awake? Bring nice coffee for this person?

My company won't give my designer the art director title she deserves because of the association of the word "director". I've explained to them an AD isn't a director level job like a CD is, but they're just so hung up on the word that they're not budging, saying that her having a title with the word "director" would be confusing for some. FML.

But, they've said I could give her any manager level title she wants. What title would you suggest that aligns to AD that I can give her?
