When Developers Work Late, Should the Manager Stay?

jammag writes “A veteran developer looks back — in irritation — at those times he had to work late and his unskilled manager stayed too, just to look over his shoulder and add worry and fret to the process. Now, that same developer is a manager himself — and recently stayed late to ride herd over late-working developers. ‘And guess what? Yep, I hadn’t coded in years and never in the language he had to work with.’ Yet now he understood: his own butt was on the line, so he was staying put. Still, does it really help developers to have management hovering on a late evening, even if the boss handles pizza delivery?”
