I am working as a Senior Software Engineer. I am also a module lead and am leading a team of 2.
One of the guys is very abrasive and shows a reprehensible and arrogant attitude towards the fellow team mates. This goes on always. I tried to appease with him, but even with me he shows the same head-weighted attitude.
This is causing a great problem with respect to the harmony of the team.
But my manager (project manager of our team) is unaware of his attitude. He keeps applauding and lauding this guy just because he is a good performer.
As such with PM this arrogant guy behaves properly and with very kind and ethical manner.
I have an opportunity to expose his derisive behaviour to the manager during appraisals. But I am not sure how far my PM would accept my feedback. He is so very biased to this guy.
So, how to handle this kind of a situation. I am really feeling very bad for my team is really hardworking and good team players are not getting that recognition. But this mean guy just because he sits next to the manager he keeps getting all the attention and appreciation in the team.
