rotz2853yGood call on quiting, this boat will keep sinking
Fuck that guy. And that’s the reason they’ll sink.
Perhaps next time go to the boss above manager 2 and tell them they need to replace manager 2, just ask manager 1..
gandfaad873yhow come these people (like manager2) climb up to become a manager in the first place?
I work for Escape Rooms and I'm going through a very similar thing right now. Management wants the devs running rooms and is taking away our time to develop new rooms, then complains about how long it takes to get our tasks done. Gonna quit soon. Hope they fun finding new good developers for minimum wage when we all quit. Cause they fucking wont.
Sometimes the top boss isn't an idiot, but isn't very good at figuring out who is worth hiring.
More of an issue in a large company where hiring is done by HR, who if they happen to be a complete bunch of idiots who have no idea who to hire, will hire complete idiot managers..
Then one day someone from the bottom goes to the boss and tells them how many shit managers they have, and its a complete surprise to the boss who has been told everything is running fine !
This is why you get TV series like:
Where they can find out what the truth really is at the bottom for themselves, and not filtered through layers of incompetence.
The number of good bosses though is falling from what I can see, we are running out of them !
My experience is just a little bubble of reality, so the other advice was more general.
