I work in medical admin I was recently a small part of a project that made me crazy for so many reasons. In light of recent events I'm now reconsider staying at my current company.
My tiny part was transferring data. In the big picture I was pretty small. There were 2 project leads and one project manager and many, others that weren't as hands on
I worked with one of the project leads for about 5 or 6 years but in different departments.. She started off as a CSR and somehow became a manager and then an administrator. (her education is cosmetology)
Our company is known for promoting staff who have very little formal education to management positions. To make a long story short, the project she led was a complete disaster.
As a manager, she is disorganized, easily overwhelmed, has poor follow through and is quick to blame others....other people weren't doing what were supposed to or are "mean" to her
I saw her poor decision making skills, poor communication skills and inability to prioritize first hand. Honestly, it didnt matter to me because it was her name, not mine
I assumed when the project was over I would be done with her but to my surprise she is now the manager of my department and I now report to her.
My concern is this....she is now in charge of my department which for the most part works well. I have no confidence that if I do have to bring issues to her she is capable of handling them. I don't trust her as a manager or a person.
Should I speak up or keep my mouth shut?
