I am an experienced Director of Database Applications who previously has successfully supervised a team of DBAs and has made a few successful database conversions to/from: MySQl, PostgreSQL, MS SQL. Despite my formal job title "Manager of Database Applications", my current company is using only 25% -30% of my capacity of managing just a single database platform. None of my other experience (especially management and other DB platforms) is used or planned to be used. All Database related questions are solved without my input, I am not asked to contribute or/and capitalize on my previous database management experience across other platforms. Essentially, as a dog I a given a bone - "chew this thing - you are doing a good job with MS SQL 2005 - keep it at, and do not ask questions"
How can I step up to the broader responsibilities if my manager is actively ignoring any input from me?
