here is just a story about how terrible the management distortion can be inside the company. There's a new manager joined Juniper Networks from acquisition trying to give orders and tasks to people not under his management. This manager has no indepth understanding of what tasks these people have already received from their actual manager. And abusively, he randomly adds new stuff to these people's todo list and push these people to finish while he has a bunch of his own people at similar role who are just chatting, watching videos/YouTubes and doing little or some legacy problem lasting more than a year...More ridiculously, the manager doesn't have any intention on learning what is going on and invalid any inputs from those people not under his management. He simply claims that these people are not doing a thing and should be fired! All his act looks very political, cleaning people not from his original gang and claim his own realm inside the company. It's really surprising that the leaders of this company simply let this happen when they wish to do some fundamental changes to bring the company back to life. How can this happen when such management abuse exists? Good luck to the company.
We see the same at Microsoft everyday and Sr. leadership just watches!
