I work for a very large company in USA. Some of us are allowed to work remotely sometimes or always. A few months after starting my job, I saw evidence that my manager praised me in front of me, but was secretly critical of me. So, I asked him for feedback about my nature, skills and work ethic. But he only praised me instead of giving me genuine feedback. Anyway, I still continued the job for "good" reasons.
Some of my teammates are poor performers and often shirked their responsibilities. I provided my manager with the evidence. It appears that he scolded them, because they became more responsible after my private complaints. But, they still remained poor performers. I had to help them out with basic stuff in their work and fix their mistakes. But, it seems that no real corrective action was taken against them.
A few years later, our company announced mass layoffs and also some new projects which received more funding. My manager quietly moved one high performing teammate to a new project without informing the team. We only discovered after I asked the manager about the absence of the teammate in a team meeting. Later, the manager moved one of the poor performers to a new project and a high performer to an unspecified project. But, he at least informed the team about it this time. He has given the remaining team some work to do, but it seems to be of poor quality. To give you an analogy, my manager has knowingly/unknowingly given us a bad foundation and asked us to build a house on it.
What do I do ?
