Referrals needed, plan to leave asap due to my horrible mgr

May 27 22 Comments

I’m sick of my insecure, micro-managing, neurotic mgr. She’s a newbie as a mgr(just 4 months after promotion) and I feel like I’m her & the company’s guinea pig to train her for ppl mngmnt.

She has this OCD for doing things only her way, puts you down & shames you in 1:1s for the silliest of the things and is a hypocrite AF.
She recently made to look one of her mistakes as mine. This is ruining my previously built reputation and I don’t see any growth in my role. I think she’s insecure as a newbie and is forcing us to ‘bend the knee’

Sorry for my rant but can the amazing blind community please refer me?

TC: 150k, I know 😐
Role: Business Intelligence, Data Analyst, Product Analyst & related roles.
YOE: 6

    Are you ready for the behavioral question: tell me about time you had a conflict at work and how you resolved it?

      You need to asses the situation and sometimes that is the right answer. I agree with OPs assessment.
      I was a report for a freshly minted manager and that was a horrible experience. Some people just don't have the skills to be a propel manager. You cannot teach someone how to respect others. (maybe you can, but it should have been their parents job, not yours as a report).
      I wasted a bunch of my time trying to change that idiot.

      On a serious note, answering I got rid of that job is a valid answer or not? I have done same in past when I had conflict with a senior and I couldn't handle it anymore

      No, it’s a terrible answer for an interview. Companies aren’t going to want hire someone who will quit at the first sign of conflict.

      I wouldn't mention that in an interview though. Because you'll have to go into a lot of details and spend a lot of time to explain and convince the interviewer that you made the right call. Also, it never looks good on you to talk shit about previous employers during an interview (even if it was actually shitty).

      Thanks for the answer, it seems sometimes it's better to hide the bitter truth.

    Proof that people don’t leave companies they leave people. My manager is fantastic. My skip-level manager is awesome. Feels good :). Give people here an idea of your background and experience (the TC or gtfo obligation of course too). I’m sure the community here will rush in to the rescue!

  • Currently working on a project with two different teams in HPE and everyone involved on their side has been more incompetent than I thought was possible while maintaining employment. Run the f away as fast as you can.

    Find something that is soo important for her at work. And you go above and beyond to get that done for her. And you expect no credits for that. That’ll build a relationship for life 🙂

    Don't bend the knee. If she is not able to treat you with respect and is making you take her fault this is very bad character. Not your fault at all.

    From IC to new manager sometimes micromanagement comes from still gets into the weeds and too much details. You have to set up trust and push back or you could just find another job. Good luck.

    I’ve had similar, it’s brutal especially when it’s clear the person is not and never will be qualified to manage. Sorry to hear. I’d refer you to Cruise, but that’s standard operating procedure here

    Make sure to let your HR knows when you send the email. It's futile to discuss this with your manager.
