As for looking for another job, I am looking but it's hard to find work part time at an equivalent rate of pay. Throw into the mix the fact that due to the organisational restructure this coming August (was meant to be last November) I'm finding out if my role is being made redundant. Which is worth sticking around for as it is a $52k payout. But I can't help but feel that they're treating myself and Jane like crap so we leave and they don't replace us and they save $100k!!?
[QUOTE=Wise Enough;8395674]Happens at my work all the time. Management have favourites and will always choose them for the role they want. Often "yes people" who don't challenge anything.
You've hit the nail on the head, Sarah is 7 years my junior and still in that out to impress stage and says yes to everything. I'm a bit more of a challenger only as I've been there longer than anyone in the team so I've seen things not work or they don't have a decent ROI so I question how we can do things better or repurpose the funds, yet each year my boss runs the exact campaigns in the exact same way.
I've come up with many proposals in my time which are backed up with research and budget projections etc but he has ignored each and every one of them!
He's a come to work and leave and just do the bare minimum type of person and if we challenge anything , we are put in the all too hard basket.
Yet there have been other staff who have caused all manner of issues in our team with their behaviour and never get reprimanded.
In all honesty it's the possibility of a $52k payout that is keeping me there now. It used to be loyalty and opportunities to grow but those opportunities don't exist for a part time person and where has my loyalty got me!? No where!
[QUOTE=Jontu;8395726]I would feel upset about being left out of the planning.
This is probably what upsets me more. It's the straw that broke my back! I don't understand why I've been cast aside. Throughout this entire process my original boss has not spoken to me about any of it! I found out she was my team leader the day I returned to work. The other stuff around planning etc, the change in our responsibilities etc he has not spoken a word to Jane or I. Hasn't sent an email, hasn't explained anything. He's left that up to Sarah to do, he's gutless and needs to grow a pair!
I had mentioned that there were some ideas that I had and that I wAnted to discuss making them part of the plans. Do we had a meeting and because my ideas didn't fit into what she had done she just said maybe we could look at them next year.
So she's 'managing' just like my original boss, pretending to care and take on board my ideas but then at the end just using a throw away line as to why we would just be doing things the way they've decided. Their way or the highway!
