Manager is stressing me out in #1 best work place
Joined cisco ~6 months ago and Manager joined 10 months ago.
I am the senior technical engineer and this org is not technical and depend a lot on 3rd party vendors.
when joined the state of affairs are disarray and no clear goals and very shortsighted like they don't know what happens next quarter !
Manager was acting like jerk and changing tasks and deadlines every other day and confusing whole team could not able to deliver any thing in last 3 months as a whole. When I raised my voice in scrum meetings that the direction and goals are confusing and are changing every day, he started assigning tasks and forcing short deadlines and sending 1:1 emails that I was not meeting his expectations every week. I am shocked that some of the tasks are not even discussed not even part of the current quarter.
He gave me bad rating and told me I did not meet his expectations with sarcastic smile.
all these interactions and targeted blaming and complaints are making me stressed out a lot.
Spoke about his behavior to the director few times after that his behaviour became worse and finger-pointing.
Now, he is complaining that I was rude and disrespectful to the manager. that was part of my low performance rating.
I am running out of options. His intention was clearly to sabotage my. career and thorough under the bus for his faults.
I no longer want to work for this insecure manager, but as per HR, I have to be in the hiring team for 10 months before I request transfer. if i leave, i have to pay back prorated 20k sign on.
any advice is appreciated . sorry for my long email.
Manager and I are on same grade with similar TC 250k
