Is the management have any decisions when an employee need to be pressured at work. ?
Or is it comes as it comes as a part of politics?

I have seen new joiners has been pressured for an year , set them free for another year ...and again cycle continues

is there any management strategy like that ?

if not  what your opinion about pressurizing an employee?

lol, sounds like you work with doctors or lawyers.

i had worked at law firms for 15 years and that sounds a lot like their modus.  Everywhere is different, so no, I would like to think this isn't common practice.  My current job is nothing like what you describe.

If that's your environment, pete, you may want to take stock in what you believe is important to you in a boss/subordinate relationship.  Pressure, if it is unfounded/without construction, is an unneeded element to ones workplace.

Putting pressure on employees can be good or bad.  It really just depends upon the situation.  Placing unnecessary pressure on an employee who does good work and is a solid contributor will likely lead to that employee feeling as if they are in a no win situation.

Placing pressure on an employee who is a known underachiever can be used in an attempt to make them come around.  Basically telling them, "If you don't do a better job then I will have to write you up or terminate your employment."

Pressure is also part of working in IT.  Working on critical issues is always a pressure packed situation.  So it is important that we work with cool heads and continue to think clearly when under pressure.

But i have literally seen employers are pressuring employees for over productivity..irrespective of underachiever.. if one person sees non-pressurized the other person will be treated unequally so he will also be pressurized.

i don't know really but my current project is like this!

Depends entirely on the situation.  I fired one person after coming to work drunk.  All it took is a single offense.  Can't have people coming in drunk.  Zero excuse.

For the most part I believe in working with employees.  I believe in helping people work through challenges they are experiencing.  That is part of being a leader.
