bahua1027276dGod. Damned. Right.
netikras953276dIs that "Like a boss"? Ghee.. I do that all the time but never thought it's "like a boss". I mean I do my 8 hours/day and whatever issues there are - they are no longer my problems. Not until next working day at least. Never considered that to be... Bald. Just sensible
millenialdev33676dSend tasks without advice before leaving = till next day broh!
bahua1027276dThe correct way to make it not OK for him to leave just then, as he had planned, would be to say something like, "there is a sev-1, and we need you to represent our team." Anything else, and a lack of representation is the PM's fault.
"A lack of planning and preparation on your part does not equal an emergency on mine."
mahaDev239475dWish I could do that without fourteen thousand seven hundred and fifty three escalations on my within an hour of the mail being sent on a Friday after 8PM.
Yes you have the right to do so. But think about the opportunity of having them owing you a favor.
Either way, you didn't do anything wrong.
rutee071074675dI imagine the same last minute demands happening in my previous job. The client would request for weekend resources on a Friday night and my manager can't say no. These days, I talk directly to the client's CTO and he is quite a reasonable man. Our conversation goes like this when he adds a new requirement:
Him: "Do you think you can finish the application today?"
Me: "I don't think so. I'm still working on such and such so I haven't touched the new requirement yet."
Him: "Okay. Try to finish it tomorrow."
I still have a manager but she's in a different location and we only talked on my first day. I work directly with the client and I feel that it's better because there's no one in the middle. No one to forget that something has to be done and communicates it last minute.
