Manager is unprofessional, sexist and racist, but he will be leaving the company in 2 weeks. Should I complain about him to HR?
A new Engineering Manager took charge of our team about 8 months ago. He has great technical experience and this was his first time discharging the duties of a manager.
The first few months were lax as he was catching up with what the team had been up to, understanding the architecture and thinking of ways to improve on them.
Since the time he has taken full control, there has been a steady decline in his enthusiasm regarding the company and the work that we do. He is very vocal in pointing that the problems we are solving are hardly worth being called as problems and that he was worked on "real" problems all his life. He has been convincing 2 of the 6 members of our team to pursue higher studies and others to quit this job and join a real tech company.
Ever since he put in his notice 2 weeks ago, he has also become downright racist and sexist. He talks about how women are after mens' money and comments about black people which I will not be repeating here.
This is now making me really uncomfortable. I was about to lodge a formal complaint when I found out that he has decided to leave the company. But his behaviour since then has been appalling.
Should I go ahead and make a complaint about this? I am not sure if any action will be taken against him and if that will be of any help to anybody. Our company is based in India where being racist/sexist is not considered as big a red flag as it would be in any other tech company.
