The War Room
Question
Post

What is one thing you want to tell your manager, but you know you'll get fired if you do?

I'll start:


You should never have been hired, or even promoted to VP at this point in your career. I do all of your work for you, but get paid 75% of what you do.


Your turn!

I can smell your bullshit a mile away. I’m in sales too, dickwad. Just level with me and ACTUALLY tell me what’s possible instead of throwing a pitch full of lies. 

I know they’re not lies for you, but that’s cause you’re the boss. 

Also, I know you only work like 30 hrs a week tops.

Oh. That reminds me. I probably shouldn’t tell my boss about sending hookers to that prospect either.

The best last words I had with my sales manager in an old job was, apart from the money opportunity you bring here, what else are you bringing to the table? Was told to get my things soon after hahaha

I laughed when he said that, I don't know if I was just talking out loud or I said it to him but I remember saying that WOULD be your only response, bc you got nothing. Those moments were tense.

Have you considered selling Ice creams in a truck because you don't have the skills to tell me how to do my job properly. 


You are just a storyteller who thinks have a superpower just because you are almost the CEO's boyfriend.

I think that might get you fired as soon as you finish saying it.

You should be more responsible with your time and your duties, set an example with your attitudes and not be a hypocrite by speaking ill of someone behind their back and treating them kindly up front.

So true mate, so true. My manager throws his toys out the pram and runs to the ceo without telling any of us what the problem is prior to going to him. Also at the same time, the problems he runs to him with aren’t actual problems but he only sees half of the issues so just creates a game of Chinese whispers. Honestly, it’s a young mans game not a Neanderthals.

It is a shame to see that there are many bosses who lack good attitudes, they should be more professional and trust their work team more ... but that does not happen 😅

You know we have a small team right ? So this lack of production you talking about it kind of your fault . You fired and let people go for no reason and fail to bring in quality to replace them . These temp agents don’t care enough. Worse thing is we can all see you at your desk adjusting make up , clipping finger nails , scrolling Facebook etc ; which is why your authority over the team has greatly diminished.

My boss told me I was not cut out for Enterprise sales last week and I told him I was doing fine for 10 years prior to his recent arrival and am probably going to hit my quota this year as well and that his micromanaging is not going to help me achieve that goal. Waiting on the fallout here and already have some new job interviews set up.

No, you don't have a 100% close rate, stop saying that. The only deals I've ever involved you in ended up falling through. If anything my chances of closing go down with you on a call.

you have me do things that are outside of my actual workscope, and when i get excited about a project i managed to finish about that out of scope work, at least spend three minutes to understand what i have done.

not to mention you talk about my "sense of belonging" but you literally killed any i had with that "oh, we didn't give you ppd but the fact that you lack it shows your sense of belonging" sentence. i would criticise your leadership, but you can't criticise something that doesn't exist.
