I remember it so you don't have to."

I think the biggest flaws that I've seen people say of Doug and my personal observation of him is that he bites more than he can chew, is not as professional and talented as he wishes to be, and that he is somewhat of a doormat.

Basically, he comes off as a well-intentioned boss who wants to make folks happy and do his passions but is semi-competent, is not a strong boss who can stop people pushing him around, and clearly chooses the wrong people to side with (if he does at all since he doesn't like rocking the boat) and makes some rather dumb and selfish choices.

Although Doug is probably not the worst on CA since Mike Michaud seems to be the worst fucking manager I have ever read about so far.


I was prepared for something really bad when seeing this trending just now; thankfully it was just another user being very hyped for the next review and initiating conversation about it on this page.
