To me, if someone asks me a lot of questions, it's because I didn't make what I expect clear enough. That's MY failure. Lots of questions is a clue to someone in a leadership role that instructions/expectations given to subordinates are too vague, too broad, etc. You did nothing wrong and you are allowed to state what is and isn't acceptable communication in the workplace. Yelling is not it.

@Molinit, thank you.

I agree that it was Ok that I said this to her. She needs to know where my limits are and what I will and will not put up with. I also agree that if her instructions are not clear enough, it's on her to make it more clear. She's impossible, I've realized - utterly impossible.

So, another employee, Evan, is leaving my department and the company. He's only been with us for five months, and now he's bailing too because the company is such a mess. He gave his notice two days ago and told me yesterday.

This now leaves only two of us in my entire department with an insanely bad boss, when my department used to be SIX people PLUS a boss. The other employee who is left I think is inept and cannot carry clients. He refuses to write the monthly reports, and he refuses to get on client calls to review reports, so what good is he? This means IF I have to stay, that the brunt of all client responsibilities will fall on my shoulders, unless they hire two more people quickly.

And this other guy who is left apparently is now buddy buddy with the witch (ie, my boss) because the witch told him that Evan is leaving the company, yet the witch did not tell me (of course!).

I am crying and I am praying for a job offer with this company. Hopefully, I will hear something by tomorrow and the end of the week. If I don't get the offer, I am seriously worried about my mental health if I have to stay in this company one second longer.

I think she has mental issues... I really do. She seems unstable, at best.

Default Re: New boss is a total *****

So the latest is that my colleague wrote a quarterly report for a client that has not been assigned to anyone on our team since the last strategist left. This same colleague has also worked on side projects for this client.

So he interpreted and analyzed the data and wrote the report. Yet, somehow, my boss is telling me I have to review this report with the client on the monthly call, even though I did not write it, I have not been in the data to understand what's happening on this client account, AND, I have not worked on any projects for this client! So, I reviewed my colleague's report notes, and there were 2 points that I 100% disagree with, which are false statements that cannot be stated.

My boss told me that if I have an issue with this assignment, to go to the VP. So, since I have an issue with it, I took it to the VP. The VP then told me to go to my boss about it. So I did.

She deferred or delayed replying by saying "I will speak with you when the client call is scheduled". NICE, huh?!?

I had expressed my concerns to her and asked point blank: WHY am I reviewing this report with the client when (1) I did not write the report; (2) when I have not worked on this client account and (3) when I disagree with 2 points made in the report? She had NO response for any of the concerns I brought forward!

I mean, seriously. How much does this woman SUCK???????
