Good call. Yeah if I feel they're micromanagers or blamey I run. I just don't have the confidence or patience to deal with a team lead/boss that acts that way. Really hard for me to not care about projects/company/clients.

Sounds like you have the confidence not to deal with a team lead/boss that acts that way. 👍🏻

I know how frustrating it is. I hope you have a better manager now.

Here are questions I ask on interviews - maybe I should add more questions about management, like you do.
