I have a team of developers working with me but as we work closely my boss can see what everybody is doing.
I have a developer in team which was in every other team in last 2 years and it did not work for her. So finally my boss landed her in my team. My team is fifth team. Because of her attitude, non-competent behavior, argumentative nature and many other things, every other team lead had rejected her.
My team is kind of last hope for her but still it is not working out. My boss says to wait for 2-3 more months. But I want to do it now as team's attitude is changing and my team might loose its uniqueness and ability and replenishing the motivation will not work later. It has already been one month and I can see the impact. My boss can see too. It something like one rotten apple...........
My company does not normally fire people. So how can I convince my boss to do this now. Or we will have to do lots of work to rebuild the team.
In response to answer ->
So she had worked in like every part of the organization even QA. I have also tried to help her believing that she might not got the opportunity till now by providing different types of work, coordinating to requirement team to lower down pressure as she needs time to learn.
But still her behavior and attitude is not good. Also she had been to every team so she has contact there and trying to downgrade my reputation as well. Me and my team has been appreciated many time, so I have some haters in the organization. And obviously they are trying to grab any opportunity to put me down in management's view.
One more thing, I don't want her to be terminated. I just don't want her in my team.
Question here represents cowroker. In my case I am manager and need to take action so that team does not get demotivated.
