    Who cares, throw away the work if you can’t read it and start from scratch ... who cares if the person leaving is a low performer or not, the results are the same

      Again the person leaving being a low performer has nothing to do with your options ... if you can’t deliver by that date just be upfront with your manager

      You are mixing up pronouns. And you are whining. Are you sure the person leaving is a low performer , or are you just scared you won't be able to finish the work that the "low performer" was doing?

      Also, if he’s a low performer it probably does mean Uber is not good enough for her. Just cause a company is well known, doesn’t mean it’s the right company for everyone.

    What exactly is wrong with your taking over? Are those not "shiny" enough tasks?
    Have a conversation with your manager on how you're going to prioritize them and whether or not someone else from the team can help you out.

      Just make sure you communicate all these details to your manager and set the right message that it's unplanned and you've been busy already. Don't complain, just list facts and ask what are his/her expectations from you.

    Perfect time to shine. Pick up the slack and ask for a raise for stepping up and doing the right thing

      Jesus fucking Christ you have a shit attitude and you're a whiner. Guess what? With this attitude you're now seen as the low performer. You are CHOOSING to be miserable; you must enjoy it.

      Yes, act like the owner. Yes put in some work. Yes it's not fair but this is adult land and you either put up or shut the fuck up.

      I would fucking hate working with you.

      Tbh OP, I have to agree with Market. And you sound potentially toxic to work with. I’m not saying this to troll, I just think it’s better you are able to hear some feedback in an anonymous forum rather than having this bite you later.

      If this is you, you aren’t alone in having some difficult behaviors. I know I’ve been a real jerk in the past and it would have benefited me to realize I might need to reflect a little.

    I suggest you try to support a healthier culture going forward. It’s a major red flag that all of you would verify that a person is “troublesome to work with”.

    Anyways- your issue is that there are a series of open questions that have been unresolved. I suggest you write a list of these very specific questions in a doc. Open ended questions are fine but you better make sub-bullets underneath to break it down. This person ain’t gonna do it for you, apparently!

    Be nice. You sound irritated. People pick up on that. Be empathetic and kind to them, and you may create a win win. Everyone wants respect, you want your answers. They will give you more information if they don’t feel flooded with stress from working with you.

      I worked with this person before and it was a hell experience. We had constant fights in fact she fought with everyone and was difficult to work with. She wouldn’t agree to your approach and then provide no alternative and we had to involve senior managers to prove that she is wrong and shut her up all the damn time.

      My manager agrees and so do other managers that this person is difficult to work with and breaks down on tough projects..

      Will follow your advise

    Just do the work and don't complain. I've had a couple senior engineers leave my team and I had to complete/productionize their buggy code. If they don't recognize your efforts later you can leave, but at least try.

    I mean you're still being evaluated as an employee. Shit happens, it's our job. If you can't handle a single hiccup with out a torrent of whining and self pity then they can't depend on you
