So complaining that your boss sent naked photos of you makes you a crybaby?
Do you consider yourself a crybaby whenever you complain about something? Anything? If I kick you in the balls repeatedly, are you a crybaby if you complain?
thank you for proving my point so eloquently lol. you didn't like what i said, so you IMMEDIATELY go on the attack and don't bother examining the situation beyond your emotional response to it. which in a LOT of cases, is what happens with people at their jobs. and since these types of humans typically don't understand the concept of personal responsibility, they will always cry the loudest and shout at the injustice of it all. when they're the ones that screwed up. children do it ALL the time and these days so many adults do it that it's scary.
now, before you get even more emotional (breath, you can do it!) i'm not remotely implying that there WASN'T a bad scene at Activision. i don't know anything about it and neither do you. all you know is what the people who feel wronged SAY happened and because of your aforementioned emotional outburst problem, you immediately think the big bad boss is evil. but you know NOTHING about it. the "law" will get involved and things will sort themselves out and eventually we'll know the truth of it. until then, try to remember to stay calm and not let your emotions get the best of you. if you can't, i'll have to send you to bed with no supper. now be a good boy.
I didn't attack you. Show me exactly what the attack was. I asked you questions. I did not call you names. There was no attack.
You whined about "crybabies." Which is fun, because you then whine about "personal responsibility." Wouldn't the people sexually harassing others and expecting to have no repercussions for it be the ones lacking personal responsibility?
And what makes you think I know nothing about the situation? I've also not commented on it. You're the one that passed judgment, saying that it involved crybabies. I did not say anything about the situation. So I'd say you're the one that's making emotional statements, as you're admitting to not having facts yet applying negative labels.
I manage a team that's just pushing 60 people now, which is (sadly) quite hierarchical, with about 5 levels beneath me. We do almost half a billion in revenue. It's not the same as a 10,000 company. But let me assure you that "personal responsibility" matters far less than "professional responsibility." My managers' have a professional responsibility to my staff. If they violate that, there are repercussions. That isn't emotional. That isn't crybabies. A managers' job is getting the best results from an employee, keeping that employee as stress free as possible, developing that employee, and retaining that employee.
Shame some don't feel that way. Perhaps that's why my team has more than doubled in 2021 while everyone else deals with the great migration.
