Morale killers


Working as a software developer is no fun. One is constantly bombarded with problems that is out side the technical boundary. One unnecessarily spends time on problems other than the one is supposed to solve.

There are plenty of things that kills the developers morale. The management needs to avoid them if they are in real need of getting things done.

  • Asking developers to do meaningless task
  • Having phony deadlines for the projects
  • Having long and meaningless meetings
  • Not recognizing the work
  • Providing no motivation
  • Petty office politics
  • Not having trust on the team
  • Spoiling the team structure
  • Not giving developers responsibilities
  • Ignoring them

    Appreciating the time and effort you put into your site and detailed information you offer. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed information. Excellent read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    We absolutely love your blog and find the majority of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content for yourself? I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome web log!

    Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I?d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don?t mind. Natually I?ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

    These are all great and relevant items. One of the things that I charge my clients, project teams, and students alike is – when faced with these kinds of issues – what can you take ownership of to gain small victories? For example, if management won’t recognize you, what can you do to recognize your co-workers? If you see “petty office politics” occurring, can you document the behaviors and proactively determine strategies to thwart the politicians next time around? Just a few thoughts. I know it’s hard to concentrate when you’re the one in the trenches… and it’s not just confined to developers. Awesome post.

    Having phony deadlines for the projects…and office politics tops my list. We are just trying to make some money, but these buggers will kill us.

    Lisa, that’s the better option. To concentrate on +ve sides. But we people are emotional and get bogged down by the emotional impact this has on our mind.

    Rama, people are same everywhere..

    I agree. One must stay focused on the positive task at hand. Get away from the negative and you will shine.
