“Manager humiliated me in front of everyone. What are my options?” the Reddit user wrote. “There was a discussion that turned into an argument about some design pattern. I was arguing the wrong thing against 2-3 people. The thing is it is not like they also know it exactly. It’s their hypothesis vs my hypothesis,” the employee added, giving context to the incident.

What did Reddit users say about this post?

“Sorry, that happened. I have screamed at my teammates over the years(2-3 incidents over ten years), and they have come to me to tell me that they felt bad and disrespected. I improved myself immediately after they informed me,” expressed another.

“Try to reconcile and give a clear indication of what you felt. Watch his reaction and how he acts. You will get a good read of his character. Take action after that. Don’t worry; every one has gone through the same thing at some point in their life,” commented a third.

“Constructive criticism with redressal mechanism: Definitely speak with your manager. Tell him how you feel. Also, ask him what triggered it and what you can improve to avoid it in the future,” shared a fourth.

“Report your manager to HR and higher-ups. Ask them to send him for management training. Tell he's demotivating to work under as he doesn't know how to give feedback,” wrote a fifth.
