something that i been noticing while working with young male software engineers, not all , may be vast majority of them. They would not ask for help from a woman, instead they would ask a male co worker even if that person has no experience in that area.
Not sure if you guys are experiencing this? or may be im just over thinking🤔

      I don’t know what that is about, I don’t work in Hollywood. If anyone messes with me, I would whip their arse first than crying metoo!

      Well, that’s not the case in mine. I’m the top contributor to out git being a tech lead in 1 year. I don’t have that problem anymore, it’s actually the opposite now. This was my experience while working as an IC.

      @GE obvious they were hiring women they wanted to fuck. Fairly common in tech management. They end up hanging around flirting with managers all day, never write code. Wonder if they teach this at grace hopper, lol. "How to please your male manager."

      No, not at Zulily. It's possible people have worked at more than one company. Are you <1 yoe or something?

    Is metoo the new excuse for men these days?

      Why do you think it’s an excuse?

    • Amazon mmmehhhh
      It’s not an excuse it’s a bullying tactic. Women want an equitable workplace. They do that by calling out men of power who have abused their position such as in Hollywood because of sexual harassment. But apparently that means any guy is in trouble. I can tell you now that any jackass complaining about metoo is a major chauvinistic creep and are now scared because they know they can’t get away with shit anymore. Most decent men don’t care and understand metoo.

      So anybody who doesn’t agree with you or the metoo movement is a “major chauvinistic creep”. Nice. This is exactly why normal, decent men will stay away.

    I’ve been around the block a few times and one thing I’ve learnt is leave your ego outside the building when you step into work. If you are stuck, look for the smartest person around who can and is willing to help and seek their help. Does not matter if it is a man or a woman. At the end of the day, being able to make meaningful progress on what you are doing is what counts.

      Uber, is your question for me? If yes, I think I said what you did, but, used a few more words.

      Women are rarely smartest people in the room. Happened maybe once in my long career.

    I would ask for help from women first 😏.

    I have experienced the same with female junior engineers. I am very approachable and have mentored several female engineers at all levels during my career. I don’t know what it’s about but I make it a point to not take it personally. I think you should do the same and not make it about your gender or theirs.

  • It's the same with mechanical engineers. New team members never ask my wife for help and she's the lead production line engineer. When when she politely tells the new employee they are messing up and creating more work for other people by not asking her for help, they still won't come see her. The new hire is about to be canned.

    Why not ask women? As long as she looks good, smells good, isn’t that better than asking a men

    Maybe they’re shy talking to the girl. If it were me I would take the initiative to talk to the guy so he is comfortable interacting with me. After that if he still goes to other guys for questions, his loss!

    Happens all the time to me. I’m the lead support engineer for our product and these male field engineers keep going around me to our male product manager even though he’s told them it’s my role.

    What’s wrong with all the guys who duck under covers of “me too”? Metoo started because of all the perverts who pervade our society. My women colleagues at my first job back in the 90s taught me how to loosen up.

  • Yes OP & it's not only with younger generation. The older generation feels entitled as well and some of them think men are always more superior

    Many software developers are very introverted, and have a hard time talking to women at all. Are you seriously shaming them for not having that level of confidence?
