Really could use some advice. I know this is long...sorry! I started a job about months ago for a Director of Marketing role. During the interview process I interviewed with another Director of Marketing and he stated in the interview that he did not know how the roles and responsibilities will be divided up. I asked the CEO what he thought and he statues that I would be the lead in all marketing activities and the other Director would focus on more operations. Then when I started I found there was another Director of Marketing. Yes so now for a company that has around 100 employees there are 3 Directors of Marketing. My first day on the job no one except the boss knew I was coming. I did not have anything (computer, desk, etc) for over two weeks. There was minimal communication with my manager. Once I started to get into my role and work thru my responsibilities and try to understand out of the 3 of us who is doing what for the marketing, I have been getting nothing but silence. So I tried to have meetings with both of them individually, the one seemed to be onboard with dividing and conquering responsibilities and I stated I would keep track of all request so that we can track priorities and ownership. I the reached out to the 3rd Director to see if she was okay with this and also asked her how we could communicate better. She totally went off on me. Stating very degrading things and stated things that were just flat out not true, also such things as “she did not understand why I was hired,” she was not impressed with the work that I have done so far” and another example and that the other person before me (my understanding he left because this company dragged their feet during the hiring process) produced much better work. Now I am second guessing everything that I produce really everything that I do. The way I was spoken to frazzled me to the core for I never in my career had this happen. This dynamic is also putting other coworkers in the middle and they do not know which Director to go to. I have discussed this with my manager and it was basically that she is who she is and she is not going to change but if you get to know her better I am sure it will work out. I am struggling because I am unsure if I should just cut my losses and move on or try and tough it out. I feel that the bridge is already burnt with her and we have to work together very closely on materials. I feel as though she will nit pick everything that I do and my best will never be good enough for her, even though I feel my manager will step in as needed. But do I want to be in this type of environment day in and day out?
