notThere751yI don't think you wanna know how much the absolute evil of PM is getting paid.
teapot1101yUnless you are PA to someone arranging meetings that you are not going to attend is the most pointless thing I might have heard of.
Especially for PM that just feels like wanting to look busy and control people. I would start to decline certain meetings with suggestion that we will setup the meeting ourselves and invite you as optional.
Alt-Tab5391y@teapot 100% that is what she thinks she is doing.
From time to time she does show up, mainly if it involves multiple teams or managers, but other times she is an "attendee" just so that we to turn up.
I think this is complete bs because you should not need to be encouraged to attend meetings at work lmao.
I unfortunately can't tell that to her. At least not yet. More senior people are trying.
But normally I do cancel/propose new times, but I just can't do that when it's over a fucking weekend.
Seriously company needs to hire a proper PM .... They rather waste the investment on arsehole than invest in actual effective employee...
bzq846571yKeep rejecting meaningless meetings.
Keep estimations in hours, and then do work only when there are minimum 2hours-long blocks of time of uninterrupted work.
