    It doesn’t matter where he spends his time. Is he getting his work done? If not, make your expectations about work clear and manage him out if he doesn’t meet them.

    Or are you one of those who like to see employees at their desk 9-6 even if they don’t accomplish anything?

  • I spend 30-60 minutes, and I have been a productive engineer. Shit just takes time to come out. If I don't shit it out completely, wiping would take forever since there is shit inside and it's like wiping a marker.

      For 2 hours? OP can check his dominant hand if it has better developed forearm and bicep than the other. That should confirm this theory.

      Real problem. I was addicted and my bench press got super lopsided. Had to learn to switch hit; have since cut it out thankfully.

    I had a colleague who had to spend large amounts of time in the bathroom due to his health conditions. Don't pry; evaluate him based on his performance and leave it at that.

    You are a failed manager. I am new to Google and yesterday I left before 3:00 PM because I felt that I am not motivated to work till the eod. So what? I will be spending 2-3 hours every day over the long weekend, and even that doesn’t matter. What matters is results

      @groogle. That is what he is implying thay because of your weak working habits, indians have conquered Google . If people of your kind would have toiled hard, then Google wouldnt have had an Indian CEO.

      Just conveying what he meant. I do not support OPs view. What matters is the result.

      "you have a weak working culture" is not an argument. This poster has clearly shown that spending extra hours in the office will gain 0 extra bits of production, and now you're going off on some other tangent.

    Someone makes a post like this and people complain we have bias against Indian managers. There are bad blood everywhere but Indian culture does have this problem.

      OP I am an Indian and most of the hate towards Indian managers is often well earned. Case in point - your post here. I am also in HR and guess which of the managers I support needs most coaching and has the most escalations against him for people issues- an Indian manager. His boss who is a director and I are actively coaching him for these and he has the same kind of problems. People have to be at desk all the time, he doesn’t respect individuals lunch break or time off, if someone pushes back against him they are treated poorly to the point where we are investigating retaliation. You be aware as with such people management skills you will get highlighted in front of HR soon

    Why do you care where he is and why do you even know he is in the toilet at that time? The main point is whether he is getting work done and meeting expectations. He is a new guy right? Cut him son slack.

    Wtf do you care how long someone is in the bathroom and how do you even know that. You're a sick puppy. Dont manage people and get some help, like psychiatric help.

      I've seen this with a German manager at, let's say, largest integrated oil company. Starts with E, and has two xx's in the name.

    Ug. This is why managers in tech are so damned bad at their jobs. Nobody trains them how to be managers.

    Lose the obsession with whether people are "slacking" and start caring about the human beings you are supporting. This sounds like a health issue. If you need to ask, ask, but know that you can't demand specifics about health problems and you can't discriminate because of them either.
