This issue attempts to introduce the Soft Skill podcast and the content of episode 355.
The Soft Skill podcast is a weekly suggestion for software developers on non-technical matters they encounter in the technical field.
Two questions this week, here is the direct translation in Chinese:
My architect is too busy with his children! Over the past few months, his children have encountered many school and medical issues, and he has put in a lot of effort to take care of them. This has resulted in meetings being rescheduled or scheduled in the distant future, causing delays in the timelines of some large projects that require more attention.
I don't want to rudely insist that he puts the company above his family, but he needs to push for organizational coordination rather than his children! I don't know when he is available, and I have to do extra work or attend important meetings without him as a backup, which puts a lot of pressure on me!
Keywords: balance, priority, fair dialogue, find a manager, resource allocation, asynchronous communication, resource tilt, etc.
Can you help me understand what happened here? I was put on a "Performance Improvement Plan" (PIP), and from the negative feedback I received from my first review, it was clear to me that I did not meet the required level of skills at all. Instead of immediately looking for a new position, I decided to spend some personal time to exercise myself and my mental health, and to prepare myself emotionally and financially with the remaining time of the performance improvement plan. I didn't give up, but I didn't invest in the performance improvement plan either. A few days before my final review, I resigned instead of being fired. When I resigned, the management seemed really confused and angry. If they were going to fire me anyway, why were they so upset? Especially when one person started backtracking and pretending I wouldn't be fired.
Keywords: compensation, courtesy and legal requirements, do better, PUA, run away immediately, try it and then run away, you deserve better.
