I work in a team of 5 persons in a medium sized company. This service is new within my company and was formed by taking people from different services. So in my team, the knowledge of our processes, product, customer and market is very high but about the job itself is lower.
I initialy though that my boss, that has been in my company 1 year and has a lot of previous experience, would train us but I realized he has never worked into this exact job (think director of sales becomes vp of marketing).
I spend a lot of time training myself and it is apparent that my boss is not pulling the team in the right direction. He leans into what he knows (and that is another team job) rather than learning our real job.
Recently he recruited a senior [my job]. It is not official but I think the plan is for this guy to become my new manager. Senior guy is like my boss: experienced but not in what we need. On top of that, he is a condescending jerk trying to micro manage me. He pretends to know everything when he does know neither the job or the context (3 weeks in he still has not bothered to learn about our product)
What can I do ? I love this company and I think I could thrive in this line of job with proper support
