I work as a software developer and I have a flexible schedule where I work a few days in the office and a few at home remotely.
My project manager is relatively new as a project manager (he was an IT person before and now he's suddenly operations manager? I'm not sure how that happened!).
Anyways, he seems to be having trouble managing me remotely. We have a mandatory meeting for all engineers every morning even though we all work on different projects and aren't much of a team. However, there are over a dozen engineers with different projects and he is not a software developer himself. He seems to have bitten off more than he can chew and isn't sure what's going on most of the time. I feel uncomfortable being managed by him and unclear about his expectations.
How do I deal with this situation and meet his expectations without coming across as feeling threatened?
