My old HD spent MS time at home napping and hanging out with the wife/kids. Pretended that he was at the HS doing admin work. But we all knew when that admin work wasnít getting done of when we had to stop by the HS between things to grab equipment.
I was chastised and shamed for calling it out and was told that discussing it would only hurt my career and make me look bad. Told that Ďuntil youíre a HD yourself you have no right to criticize.í
So I took a HD job the next year and you better believe Iím seeing my MS classes on a regular basis. Things are great, and our recruitment pipeline is thriving. My replacements call me complaining about the behavior often and I really sympathize.
We need a better way to call out this terrible behavior without being ostracized. The defensive HDs on this post arenít getting that. It DOES happen.
