business slang A manager who only becomes involved in a matter when a problem is perceived to have arisen, especially when he or she has little other knowledge about said matter and only causes more problems as a result of his or her involvement. I'm sick of this new seagull manager. If he would just let us get on with our work instead of swooping in every time there's a hiccup, we'd nearly be finished by now!
