      Plenty of female nepotism out there. But its normally girl sponsors girl.
      Oh that's ok then. I just have to be a dick tease to get a job rather than go all the way. Phew. I'll stand down off my high horse.

      Nice bit of whataboutery with the female nepotism

        The boss doesn't like being told the truth... and the result is here.
        Oh well

          So basically no-one on your team was given the task to ensure that the business and other higher managers had visibility of the project you were working on.

            I was just pointing out the sad condition of many middle aged male managers. You don't have to tease if you don't want to, but plenty do and it helps their careers. Sex is a strong driver - mentoring and a sexual relationships go back to the Spartans and further.

            From me there is no suggestion that you have to do anything, its just an observation.

            I would not want many of the scummy sexist middle aged managers I knew lusting after my teenage daughter so wouldn't expose her. Also if I were in a position to be nepotic (is that a word?) I'm likely to be a middle aged, middle class man; so my daughters are probably studying medicine (they are) , law or teaching (most other middle managers kids were studying these) not engineering so are unlikely to work in my field.

            However with the rise of more female senior managers the rules are slightly different and I see more young girls being sponsored by female managers.

              This - no one was tasked with doing the important ass kissing for this project!

                That is supposed to be our boss' job.
                TBH I wouldn't have a problem if she did the project management. But no, she's acting as if she is our actual management and trying to cnage everythign to suit herself. And taking credit for everyone's work in the process.

                    You need to leave anyway as you are clearly inside.

                    I literally had to remind her, rather unpolitely that I've bene writing code longer than she's been alive

                      You know sometimes you have to direct managers?
