I worked on Bridgewater’s infamous Dot Collector app. If you aren’t aware of it, it’s “radical transparency” for feedback and it is savage.
We always joked that the only way we’d work there is if we made double our salaries and had a pony we could ride at work everyday.
Any ways your article is a good stance on the dark side of open feedback cultures and how they can be used to tear down and manipulate. It’s particularly hellish for marginalized workers. This is why “silence is complicity” should be a standard.
If you so-called made people’s life hell on project, and they said nothing in a timely, direct, and actionable manner, the feedback should be nullified. But you know how it goes.
At least feedback, even shitty feedback, out in the open instead of behind your back (although I’d wager, that still happens to)?
