Attitude of a Typical Project Manager

Whenever you join the software house you should be prepared for this attitude of your Project manager.
He will be acting with you in this particular manner.

When you join the Project
“Please don’t hesitate to come to me any time for any technical or domain help”

When you go to him for help
“You can find it out man…. Can’t you?
Search in the books, and try to find it out yourself.”

When you ‘try to find it out yourself’
“You can’t waste time like this. You should’ve come to me for help. We have to deliver ..Come to my place”

When you go to him for help, again
“Don’t make any changes in the code now. Come up with a document for impact analysis by lunch”

When you go to him Just before lunch
“So, what have you done since morning? This document? Shall we deliver this? How many lines of coding did you do?…………. See, this is not the way we should work”

When you go to him 1 hr after lunch, with a small amount of coding -that’s all what’s necessary
“Only this much of coding since morning!!!” (Probably, you could’ve added some lyrics of any song in your code to make it look healthy).
“Change here, ……… change there, ………….. Add here,……………. Modify there . Do it NOW”

When you go to him with the changes suggested by him
“Who asked you to do these? Everything’s wrong here. See, this is not the way we should work……………”

Every 10 minutes
“So? What’s the status???
