Sorry that you had to go through that. I am guessing you did not
have firing power there, because that kind of attitude, in front of
the group during a planning session, with the client, product owner
and other team members there, just by being accepted, was doing harm
to the team.
Why was Employee B given to Employee A as a mentor? All their views
of the process were getting clouded by A's dislike of the system, and
they probably never had a chance.
I think Employee B should have been given more of a chance, but that
Employee A should have been booted long ago.
