Background: I am the most junior person in a marketing team that evolved through acquisitions, as a result everyone except for me has manager in their title (though they manage no one, since people leaving the team were never replaced).
The Problem: I feel as though everyone treats me as their direct report and delegates repetitive time consuming tasks to me, as a result I have little time left over to deal with my core responsibilities properly.
The Question: Do you have any suggestions on how I can turn these requests down?
Things I have tried:
I have tried bringing this up with my manager, but she seems to want to look good in front of the other mangers and always agrees to their requests for my time.
I have begun keeping detailed records of how I spend my time, so that if I fail to deliver on something properly I have better proof of the number of things being asked of me.
In my opinion the issue here is that because I do not report directly into the other managers they do not have full visibility of my workload. The other issue here is that the team is under-resourced and there is simply too much that needs to get done.
