MIcromanagement to the max
Development Project Manager (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – January 2, 2017
Typical day - VP (2 levels above PM's) attends ALL meetings; tells PM's what they should be doing and how to do it
We manage our projects through knee jerk reactions and threats of termination.My team members worked through the holidays and PTO to mitigate a delay caused by pulling all project resources to another project earlier in the year.
I've learned a lot though. ETL, database configuration, web development, credit card processing and UI development are some of the areas I manage in my project.
My coworkers, specifically my immediate manager, are great. I do miss the camaraderie I've had in the past. There are no group lunches or activities.
The most enjoyable part of this job is working with the client.
Bagel Friday, transportation stipend, office is very Millenial
