I got assigned approximately 20 tasks, all are high priority.

Coworker got assigned 2 tasks, (“like fix button sizes and padding”, “localisation “)

He completed.

I got questioned: “are you sure you are a senior developer? Are you doing your work at all? If your coworker can finish low priority tasks in a day , why you as a senior can’t? “

Me :”if you have the ability to see , please tell me how many tasks I have that are in high priority.”

“Exactly, I need you to complete it now , I expect more from you as a senior. “

Me: “why not you tell me which tasks are higher priority? Because can’t be all are urgent. If everything is urgent , nothing is urgent.”

“Stop giving excuses, be a team player.”

Me :” how is it making excuses for asking urgencies of the tasks?”

“Hahaha you called yourself a senior. What a joke”

Me:”likewise, you called yourself a Project manager yet can’t manage. What a joke indeed.”

    OMG that comeback was classic! Maybe tell him that you’ll find a dead senior developer’s grave, dig out his corpse and eat it to gain senior developer powers! I’m surprised those coworkers stuck in the prehistoric shaman age know how to operate electronic devices lol.

    @TeachMeCode about that I wasn’t the only one facing this. The other guy have even crazy tasks like implementing stripe payment (with different payment , like grabpay, cc, Alipay, applepay and Google pay) and his timeline is 2days . Cannot use no code.

    I feel this coworker who got assign to change only shit is the manager’s favourite.

    Meanwhile in my company we have "senior" contractors who are actually on junior level but even they would be given at least a month to do your tasks.

    @johnmelodyme dont procrastinate. Polish that cv, come up with an exit strategy, start taking sick leave, start having "family emergencies". Fuck that manager.

    How I would act:

    ---

    I got questioned: “are you sure you are a senior developer? Are you doing your work at all? If your coworker can finish low priority tasks in a day , why you as a senior can’t? “

    ---

    I'm working as hard as I can on difficult tasks, they take as long as they take. If you want them done faster, hire more staff.

    As to the question of priority, I would decide myself if I'm not given an order of, and go for the ones that look like I can finish them quickest.

    Whilst the co-worker is at a loose end, I would assign them what looks like the easiest task to do, irrespective of how long it will take.

    Since they would benefit from the training experience. :-)

    @Nanos And suddenly, the "project manager" is rendered completely redundant. Good job!

    😧

    It's quite common that PM's hand out too many top prio tasks to the same person. And then ask "is it done?" too often.
    But flat out being called a slow worker is highly unusual and alarming.
