Back to the grind/The road ahead
Today is my first day back after a week off.
Whilst I was away I had 3 emails from my work bro, saying he missed me, didn't realise how reassuring it was having me here, that he had felt lost all week and could I not go on holiday again, which was nice.
I have been weighing up my options, do I continue with my search for a new job? or try and get them to see me differently/see if I can take on a bit more here. And when I say take on a bit more, I mean from the MD and his number 2.
The questions I need to ask myself are
Have I been here too long for them to view me as anything other than middle management?
Is this something I can turn around?
After so long here, should I think about moving as my only option for any kind of promotion?
I think whilst I am here, and maybe keeping my options open, I'd like to try.
Oh and there is the part of me that wants to stay and fight the bully manager, because no one else can/will.
