I've been working at a software development company for the last year and a half, and during my time there, I've contributed to multiple product releases with little to no delays and generally with a high level of quality.
Lately however, (over the last six months or so) my boss has been pointing out things that he sees are things I can improve on.
These are things like:
- Pointing out a single typo on internal technical documentation
- Pointing out a misspoken number (1.5 versus 1.1) when giving a status update to the team)
- Going over every action item in depth from an incident report that I reviewed and questioning every single item that came as a result.
- Pointing out I took a lunch break when there was a production issue occurring.
- Pointing out I gave him incorrect information (that I corrected later on) during an active incident investigation.
I'd like to think that this is nothing personal, and maybe perhaps just due to his style of management but I'm feeling pretty frustrated. I don't feel like he explicitly trusts me to perform my job for some reason and I feel that I need to be perfect 100% of the time or it gets brought up to my attention.
Is there a way to bring this up to my boss professionally?
