As a manager I feel I would be committing career suicide if I had that attitude toward my staff. Any manager worth his salt knows they must work THROUGH the employee to get the task accomplished.

So these guys actually think if you miss the deadline THEY would be just as well off? They don't seem to understand now THEY are late if you don't succeed. That's some way of managing.

If all is as stated, I believe you have no real option but to take the abuse and accept that threat over your head (assume you are dead man walking) or find another job and use your notice period to take any PTO that won't be paid out.

During the exit interview, certainly thank that managers supervisor for giving you the motive that started you looking for a new job, and how well it all worked out. You're certainly going to tell all your former colleagues as well via LinkedIn how much the new company cares for its employees. All very polite and professional of course.
