Production team and fun at workplace
AWS Cloud Engineer (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 9 October 2018
When I'm looking for a new manager the first thing I look for is motivation. I want somebody wants to be there and lead their team in getting the job done even when they are cold, wet and miserable and their whole team is cold, wet and miserable and something important has just gone wrong.
The second thing I look for is organisation. They must be able to organise themselves and others, as well as the administration, finance, etc.
The third thing is leadership skills. They must be able to get along with people, help them when they are stuck and be firm when they are lazy.
The fourth thing is technical skills, which vary greatly depending on the job. Ideally they should be able to do every task the team has to do, but it's not always necessary.
