Anytime I hear "zero tolerance" associated with a policy I immediately understand it is meant to appeal to the lowest common denominator of mouth breathing idiot with zero capacity to understand complexity or nuance and is a complete abdication of responsibility and moral/intellectual authority.

I took a mental health day so of course I get an email string fwd from the manager of another department wanting to speak to me about the snarky tone one of my directs used in telling the accountants that tech support's role isn't to do their reconciliation for them. Monday should be fun.

Do you watch Billions? The second to last episode this season was talking about their compensation cycle. The CIO suggest waiting until after a capital raise to do the comp meetings and the shop manager says there's 3 things you can't not do without dire consequences: get to a doctor when gut shot; know where a toilet is when dining in India; and pay your people.

Even fictional characters understand management better than your "managers." If there is any place in need of some podcasts on feedback, coaching, and annual review processes its sounds like this outfit.

last i knew the final season was going to be even fewer episodes than the penultimate season. however, i've also read that each episode is going to be significantly longer. like possibly run times more in line with a theatrical release film.

Yeah, maybe not so much the list itself but the color commentary. Liking the prequels is just....go watch mr. plinkett review those turds. he says it all much better than I'll ever be able to.
