I've been interning at a startup as a project manager for the last 2 months.
Whenever I make a mistake and take a wrong step my boss will just randomly drop me message stating that I did not do things correctly.
So I am considering to bring this up and set a meeting the next working day and tell them that I think that it is not a good practice to drop me a message about my mistake randomly.
Instead we can have a weekly retrospective meeting every Friday to review my work for the week. During this week they can tell me about my good/bad things.
I work remotely and in a small team (9-12 people).
What do you suggest?
Scenario: Last Tuesday, we met and had discussed some tasks for myself that needs to be achieved by end of this week. As a manager, I need to manage Business side and the technological side. So i has some tasks from both the side. Suddenly my boss drops me a message last thursday evening and states that i have been not doing my job correctly.Note: here he did not mention about any task, he just said i am not doing it correctly. Firstly: It was outside my working hours. Secondly: It sounded rude to me.
Now last Friday, my lead of technological side comes and points out some of my mistakes and tell on the call with him. Which i understand. because it was within my working hours. and it was call. So he has more room to explain where i am going wrong and where i am not. Coincidentally, both of them pointed out the same mistakes.
To overcome such situation, I want to tell that i would be great to have scheduled day and time to discuss this stuff.
I totally respect that they want to point out mistakes, but i feel it should be within some "rules" they can't just drop me a message and tell me.
