And now the brave management decided to go out and shame the person who burned out for them. Isn’t it nice to be a little management psychopath? Now your current employees would be scared of you and you made your hands clear.
Every manager reading this article should note: if your developers are overworking you have to stop immediately, force the team to rest and review the goals.
Every developer who sees how management is allowing them to burn out should quit immediately, shout out to fellow devs on GlassDoor about those monsters and never look back.
It took me two burnouts to learn this and a good book on psychopaths to understand how parasitic management could work a fair developer to a mental break out.
