I have been working in a tech start up for 7 months as a PM and something is starting to bug me.
- The rest of the team can come into work at 9am, I have to be in at work by 8-8:30 latest. Contractually my hours are 9-6, if I come in at 9am now my boss tells me off.
My boss often comes later than me to the point I'm wondering why I am coming in early.
- Instead of working a 40 hour week, I am working 50-60 hour weeks from the additional hour or more of overtime. Also on weekends I am generally on stand by.
I am starting to get burnt out and this is affecting my work/life balance with my partner. I have already told my boss this, and how commuting is generally difficult (I spend about over 2 hours commuting a day), it's fallen a bit on deaf ears.
Other then this, I am generally a high performer in the company. The pay is bothering me too, I am being paid as a PM well below the market rate since it is my first full time professional PM role.
Is there anything I can do, or should I just accept it?
