open thread – March 18-19, 2022 — Ask a Supervisor


tl;dr: A coworker I wrote about in February has gone even additional off the rails

So I’ve written about Beatrice twice earlier than: A brand new-ish peer, employed late final October, who has delusions of grandeur.

This previous week, a fellow Senior requested if we 4 wished to collaborate on how you can method a mission that’s new to them (as a result of they’re new to the corporate) however not new to me. We had a Groups name the place I defined what we’d carried out previously, confirmed them the templates we’ve used for mission administration, however stated, “There’s nothing magic about these templates, use no matter works greatest on your mind.”

Two of the Seniors, R & J, had a bunch of questions and solutions.

Beatrice was on mute the entire time. By no means as soon as stated a phrase, not even in the course of the preliminary “hello” friendly-chat minutes.

Then, the following enterprise day, R took the primary stab at a draft e mail that we’ll all must ship — in a single type or one other –to the respective enterprise unit heads of the areas we every are auditing.

R despatched a message in our Seniors’ chat group saying that he was going to take the primary stab and requested for enter or solutions. Nobody stated something.

He despatched his first draft and I steered including a sentence. He made a change, then I considered one thing else, and we did a couple of rounds of this earlier than he requested if he may name me. We hashed out some extra stuff over the cellphone and he despatched the ensuing draft to all of us with a observe saying, “Be at liberty to switch the way you see match.” Beatrice replied, “Thanks. Good work!”

Then, after hours that very same day, she despatched the next to me:

“Look it’s nice that you simply and R are steering forward. However on the identical time you’re ignoring the expertise J has (right here at Firm) and myself (working within the SOX atmosphere). Watch out to not make folks really feel alienated.”

Adopted shortly by, “In no way disregarding what you each have carried out. It has been nice!”

After which this, a couple of seconds later, “Only a respectful observe going ahead.”

Flummoxed, I despatched a reply about how every particular person’s mission is theirs to handle nevertheless they need, and that if the personalities of the Senior crew have modified such that opinions and solutions have to be solicited earlier than creating drafts, then that was good data to know and I thanked her for bringing it to my consideration.

She doubled-down the following morning and replied, “It had nothing to do with opinions and solutions wanted to be solicited in any respect. Like I stated, it was useful what was carried out. On the identical time, it simply got here off a little bit patronizing.”

R and I created a DRAFT TEMPLATE of an e mail that’s meant to be personalized, with zero enter from her regardless of ample alternative and requests for enter, and in some way that’s *patronizing*??

And what on earth is with the threatening language of “Watch out to not make folks really feel alienated”??? There’s an implied “Or else. . .” on the finish of that warning.

As an alternative of responding to her most up-to-date message, I talked to my supervisor, advised him in regards to the try at group collaboration, then confirmed him what she wrote. He stated it may be a character concern. I stated that if it had been, then different folks can be handled the identical means, however this was simply to me. He stated, “Uh, she’s carried out this to different folks, too.”

Mixed along with her earlier conduct, I’m getting actually dangerous vibes about her. Like, “One thing is admittedly, really improper along with her,” vibes.

It’s nearly unimaginable to fireside anybody at my firm — they, rightly or wrongly, imagine in giving folks 1,000,000 probabilities — however at the very least I don’t need to work along with her. All of us head-up our personal initiatives, so the one time we’d ever speak is in issues like R’s try at collaboration. I simply really feel sorry for the employees assigned to her initiatives.

(After all, she has by no means acted this manner towards any of our managers).
