Valued Employees Feeling Expendable
I agree that the manager is, in many ways, just doing his job. The 'single point of failure' issue is valid. But this company has already had difficulty with their offshore developers and now this manager is making this productive and knowlegable employee feel expendable. Yes, they may want to go back and do the grunt work offshore but to risk losing the technical oversight of this developer is not a wise move. The behavior maybe makes procedural sense but is sorely lacking in the people skills of a good manager. The manager is doing his company a diservice.
