Just when things seem right...

Just when you start getting comfortable and liking your job, things have to move and shake you around. Here i was, delighted with my boss and happy with my profile. Just getting into the groove, and beginning to learn from my boss. Good work was coming my way, and I was getting good exposure, when the company suddenly decides that there needs to be someone present IN PERSON to 'guide' us. so what better than a man who is now departmentless thanks to him helping in ERP implementation. Now that project is over and he cant be demoted, thus a vacancy is created for him. So from Accounting, he comes to Marketing, that too International Operations!
Candidly through a mail from the HR VP we are told that now such n such ppl will be reporting to him! Hello!what are we? peices of furniture? Never felt the Dilbert Principle to be truer than this!
The only reason I was staying here was my profile and my boss. Now, boss is gone, so what about my profile?
Bugged early morning by this. Beginning of week by this! Damn! Now is the time I think that Fate as decided 'Enough of Amedabad for Dipta'!
So be It.

Digg!

Here a PHB, there a PHB, everywhere a PHB
PHBs (pointy haired bosses, a la dilbert) crawl out of the woodwork like evil weevils everywhere.
Don't u think Scott Adams would have made a better mgmt guru than any of the rest?
Predictably...I guess what happens now is one of the following:
a) He tries to justify his miserable presence by trying to teach u how to do ur job
b) He starts asking you to send in status reports as regularly as a live cricket commentary
c) He gets a complex from seeing youngsters like you (assuming he's an oldie) and tries to put you down whenever he gets the chance.

Perhaps you oughta move on....

Re: Here a PHB, there a PHB, everywhere a PHB
Thoroghly agree with you.
Scott Adams is a Management Guru. his book is kept between 2 Tom Peters collections in one of our Domestic Marketing Heads' office. It is given out to budding managers to read and imbibe...
to reply to ur points above:
1. Every boss has his way of doing things. this guy is renowned to be "slow but thorogh" read that "Damn Fucking unreasonably slow!" and 'Too Damn Deliberate" so I HAVE to learn a few new things...like seeing the same things 10 times to remove that small comma i put i the wrong place and making an analysis of why it shoud or should not be there...he is from accunting remember? and old habits die hard.
2. Status reports are nothing new, but a summary of the status reports, yes, I can expect that. hes been given more responsibility thatn he had before. So can expect him to be swimming just beneath the water surface, barely managing to keep his head above water...
3. old and secretive. Heavens, in the one interaction that ive had with him, he actually hid from me the document on which i was sposed to do analysis...considering it too confidential. unfortunately and unexpectedly for him i was called to the meeting and asked for my inputs, where i gave him what i could without the docs...which he then forwarded to me (had to).
I need to move on. Guess should thank the stars for having a reason to. Dint have a reason till now.

About Me


Regurgitations of my mind. Specific, Vague, Memorable, Forgettable, Thoughtless, In-depth.

More variegated than your dreams or colours off a crystal. More than I can pen down. What I can, you can read.
