pk7612283yEasy malicious compliance: take all the things he says extremely literally, even when you know they will be bad. He didn't mention implementing a feature? Don't implement it. When management gets mad about shit not working right, I suspect it'll come down on you. That's when you say that he's been doing such a good job as lead with all these detailed backlogs that, while it seemed questionable, he must know what he's doing as he was made lead instead of you. And since he did this all through detailed writing, you have the proof you need.
workabit1303yThis is an idiot, as a team lead i always build everything with my team.
Architecture, engineering, customer meetings, i include my team everywhere as they are the ones who do the job.
As a human being, i know that we are more productive if we are included deeply in a project as we own it.
Plus it is always better to have people share and agree on issues/propositions.
Your seinor shall retire 😤😤
VaderNT17483y@pk76 lol, beautiful! Thanks.
@gitlog I agree. For now, I'm assuming in his favour that he got used to being the only dev too much. Or something like that. I'll calm myself down and have a talk with him.
@workabit this is exactly the way I'd like to work. Thanks for being a great team lead and the reassuring words!
Yeah, I'm having a hard time seeings things from his perspective.
He might be oblivious to how much damage he's doing. He might view me as "incompetent until proven otherwise". Worst case, he might consider it perfectly normal that the more senior you are, the more you're "entitled" to the interesting parts of work.
Well, like I said, gonna have a talk with him.
