How to deal with increasing micromanagement on the jobLocked
Most folks have seen me talk about my current job situation, and how the environment has become one of lack of respect and reversal of assurances made to me by management.
At this point however, the micromanagement has gotten so bad where I work that now timekeeping is asking me on my submitted hours if my time with no marked lunch means I took no lunch.
To this, I should have said 1 word: duh.
It’s bad enough that I have to provide project statuses frequently, and that I (as a salaried exempt employee) am still required to turn in a timesheet as though I am punching a clock.
I am often called a “computer professional” because I am “white-collar” and degreed in a technical field and all of that. But, I feel treated as though I am untrustworthy or incompetent or unprofessional in some manner because any little thing that does not fit the “norm” is questioned.
I feel as though if I don’t fit the cookie cutter image, I face an inquisition as to why I don’t.
I don’t know how you all feel about your current situations, or what they even are. I would be interested though to hear what other peoples’ situations are like.
I’ve never been treated this way in another position, and don’t know if I’ve just been lucky in the past or if I should be even more diligent to find some professional relief through other opportunities.
Hopefully, I can get some idea of what other people in development face and how their management is and the flexibility their allowed without question.
