What do you do when your team leader does not know why the following is wrong:
a.SomeProp = a.SomeProp; // no funny side-effects, plain old property
He claims 15 years of programming experience, and 7 years of C#/.NET.
To me, someone of 3-6 months experience should know this.
What I have done:
- Tried to make him understand why it is wrong. He told me not to criticize him.
- Told him it's not about criticism, but project risk. He got upset with me.
- I have addressed the risk of this person with our manager (few weeks back).
- I have addressed my concerns with this person with our manager several times, since 1 month after I started there (7 months now).
Currently, I just feel like just not going back to work... I hardly have any nails left, and this is really just the tip of the iceberg.
As nothing has changed after I have spoken to the manager for the last 6 months, I feel like I need to make some sort of ultimatum.
Do you have any suggestions?
PS: Please do not make this subjective. I have no need for arguing. The level of incompetence is pretty clear. I just need some advice before going insane.
Thanks for all the answers (trying to update before close, buggers). I think I will forward this thread to our manager :)
I sent my manager another mail with my concerns, and a link to this question. Awaiting response.
