I am a Director of Technology reporting to VP of Technology. I have noticed that my boss started:
1) Personally reviewing all job interviews in my department 2) Wants to pre-screen every single candidate (even if he is on vacation) who wants to apply in my department 3) Does not invite me (or, I should say makes no effort) to engage me to be "Acting" VP while he is gone on vacation or on business trip. 4) Does not ask my opinion - "how would you do?"
Sounds like the "classic set of signs" for the employee who is marked for extermination , but.... he is OK with me doing other, mostly technical stuff. Does he needs to learn how to "manage a manager" or I am on my way out?
