Work is a shitshow

Feb 14, 2018 27 Comments

The male senior engineer just hired in for frontend doesn't even know how to get / use npm even when node is already install on a setup script he needed to run on day 1. The female engineers deliver so much and come promotion time, not one is promoted. Outrageous. How do the women put up with it? Even some of the male engineers are complaining to the management that they don't promoted female engineers. This is at a NYC unicorn.

    Just because you don't know how to use npm doesn't mean you don't know your shit. They might come from a different background.

      This. Give them some time. If they suck in 6 months, they’re a dud. Woman here btw, been passed for promotions multiple times until I basically threatened to quit

      Obviously this Google employee is complaining about diversity in the workplace. Glad I don’t have to work with someone like you @sjugg

    Have them join Squarespace instead! :) We may not have a lot of female engs but a fair amount of them are in senior/management positions.

      Yeah , this is the problem ... WiL (Women in Leadership) is a success but then WwC (Women who Code) is a big massive failure..

      We can promote women who talk shit to leadership positions , but can’t make them code.

      I'm sorry to hear that this is your experience. We have plenty of WiL, who are extremely competent. But we also have WwC, one of which is the only principal engineer in our organization.
