bashleigh4084237dNa fuck him man. He made that decision. Make it 6 weeks late
cmarshall10450728237dMy parent company's parent company's flagship client is only paying us for 3 days a month but I've been working on it full time and overtime to meet their deadlines.
That's always annoyed me but what sent me over the edge was the account manager denying me my request from help from a data scientist for a week because that's the full month allocation and they had other things to work on. She then asked why I couldn't just do it in a way that made "logical sense" to me. Wut?!
cmarshall10450728237d@scripta55 from what I know about them, if we made them "no pay, no play" their marketing department wouldn't have the budget for it. I should explain that this is a country subsidiary and this project is mandated by the clients hq.
Us not accepting the work would also affect the client relationship in other companies above us in the hierarchy. We are the lowest so we get the s**t.
jdebs398237dI like your style
FlamingServers75237dThat happened to me as well. Our team worked 70-80 hours a week for 3 months to meet that deadline. When we finished and took a breath, management did the same thing again since we proved that we could do that work in 3 months. No break, no time to breathe, just wanted us to keep that pace going.
Thankfully, I left that company for a different one
Wack6821217dNext time, if that cunt makes a promises about manpower in the team, write it down and have him sign it. That'll make hin nervous.
