On being a female program manager at Microsoft
Donna Malayeri

You came to a new team from an academic world having zero industrial experience. You quickly tended to turn things totally upside down: introduced useless meetings (FYI, developers hate being interrupted), started being pushy and aggressive with people (you admitted it yourself). May be you had good intentions, but “the road to hell is paved with good intentions”. Now you lament that you have bad feedback. And what else did you expect? The product has failed anyways, and people got upset about your management style.

I’m glad you made good lesson from this. And I sincerely wish you luck in your career. But I am sorry, this is not about sexism. Believe me, a man in such situation would be treated the same.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
