Ask HN: My coworker doesn’t work. Does it make sense for me to say anything?
by drooby on Hacker News.
My coworker has barely worked for over a year now. No joke and no exaggeration. Every single day they seem to find a way to not do anything – either in some excuse or obfuscation. The worst part is that this person is a higher title than me and probably gets paid more than me. My manager seems to be slightly aware of this but I’m not sure by how much exactly. It’s obviously quite frustrating on many different levels. Is there any scenario in which this makes sense for me to mention something to my manager or should I just keep my mouth shut?
