This question already has an answer here:
I am doing remote account management for a US based company. I do a little bit of everything, including presales and support. Right now the company is getting more structured, hiring a crapload of senior managers.
I asked for some career development plan and some "training roadmap" for my next role. My manager told me to "you are doing great, keep learning from others through your [remote] interactions".
So, no structured role at a time when the company is getting structured AND hiring people with 10-20 years of experience.
I think that if I had a more defined role I could have more job security, as opposed to a random manager saying "hey who is this random guy? I need a specific team, let's cut the costs and bring in my buddies".
How can I establish my own role, defending myself from upcoming cliques, as a remote employee?
