Agree.
Many Dirs. do not know much about about tech, they just string words together to seem impressive. They went with this: if you cannot convince the people, confuse the people.

The implication is, the staff under such Dirs basically kept updating powerpoint slides whole day whole night and over weekends

A couple of feedbacks I got of this Dir, and they were that she doesn’t care your opinions, just do whatever she has set her mind to, so good luck if your opinions are against or not aligned to hers even if you have info or data backing your opinions. She has no sound technology knowledge, and she lack the ability of learning... her way of getting by is: if you cannot convince people, confuse them.

So she will just up string up words and terms to appear smart, but doesn’t make sense to the know-how experts and specialists. As a result, her staff has to keep modifying presentation files, up to 20plus iterations and working overnight and over weekends so that she feels impressive enough. Oh, heard she doesn’t present herself too cause according to her, she wants to give exposure opportunity to her staff to management and external parties.

The point though is that the place is bleeding talent and burning out folks and it's now toxic af and it starts from one man.

Among the various age groups, i'd say the most behkan are those in late 40s to 50s. Precisely becos they switched to semi-retirement mode. Just conform and comply to every single shiit. Such pathetic lives they chose to lead
