Mention your contract stated flexible work hours. If he still gives you shit, bring up the boss saying wfh is ok.
If he still gives you shit, then go over his head to his boss and explain the situation. Make sure you mention the contract as a refresher for him.
there is a store here that sells desktop punching bags. want me to get you one?
You complain that im not at the office enough?
Am i not picking up the slack work from other teams?
Yes， then if you want to see me more pay me more bitch
There are 2 steonng correlated main factors in success， disagreableness and meticoulessness.
Being agreable is directly correlated with lower pays.
In this case you are being agreable.
Just saying :)
You can be positive but disagreable. Disagreable is not taking shit and showing that you wont take shit which doesnt conflict with being kind and relaxed the rest of the time.
Also i think youd have to be positive as well beside you are standing up foryourself and showing confidence. That would be paradoxical with displaying negativity.
Actually being negative and disagreable would just make you an asshole ;)
Yeah that’s bullshit. Working late nights, weekends and then you get this shit...
I’m surprised you kept your cool.
Honestly, good work on that.
bahua133403yThis is how you lose good people.
bahua133403yIt's nice that my boss is in California. Though it's even nicer that he doesn't subscribe to this, "if I don't see you you're not working" nonsense.
curlyDev4903yFor all i care i wouldn't care?
I would just escalate it in an e-mail saying that a term in contract has been denied by manager and i expect more pay or to have the terms in the contract restored.
As i said and i will say before. If they found someone like you and cheaper you wouldn't have worked for them.
At the end of the day, contract is a contract.
@Jmann dick punching is definitely on the top of my list.
But I need the job for the minute, So I’ve opted for a relatively polite but frank email explaining that we are all under a lot of stress and pressure at the minute and I’m not considering “optics” as my top priority. Also said he’s welcome to call a meeting and we can discuss it as a team instead of covert 1 to 1 meetings were we are told “other members of the team” aren’t happy with us either
bols594783yCopy and paste exactly what you wrote here. CC everything up the food chain. If they don't like it they can fuck off. Don't work where you are shit on. I literally got up and walked out once. And have done it ever since.
The guy should not be managing a Dev team. He would be much better suited to a job in a circus, wearing an amusing ginger wig and a large red nose.
