How ro deal with an ignorant passive-aggressive micromanager
I was hired as a contractor by a VP as an SME in product marketing and BI / analytics. He now has me working with his subordinate that complains that my work isn't high enough quality in his eyes and I don't hold myself accountable. Oddly enough, I do nearly all of the work and he simply makes minor adjustments to what I provide.
He gets angry when I don't write like a "product marketer" (which is false) yet his suggested edits are often incorrect (both from a grammar and accuracy perspective) and wants to train the salesforce on these incorrect assertions. To make matters worse, he gets flustered if I have a quick question that I need an answer for to move forward in my work and refuses to answer unless I bring in the VP.
Overall, he fails to provide deadlines and expects a fast turnaround and questions the amount of time I put in. When I suggest having semi-regular sync-up sessions he refuses saying that because of my rate I should be able to do everything and that we can fix later.
I need this job until I find a FT opportunity (which the VP and this person support and are helping me with intros), but I am getting tired of the constant attitude from this person.
How do I deal with this situation?
