I had the privilege of having a really helpful and encouraging manager AND a great project when I first entered into this industry right after college.
Unfortunately my manager left the company and I'd always like to work under him at the drop of a hat. I learned how empathy, positive communication can change someone's entire perspective.
Given a choice, I'd lean towards "good manager" because ultimately it's the people that matter.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
