I started my new marketing job 56 business days ago, launching a new style of complex, campaigns (which I'm professionally certified in).
The average campaign at my new organization takes 6-8 weeks from day one to the first day of launch.
I started working on my first campaign three weeks ago - and I'm being told that I'm not moving fast enough. I've been chewed out by my boss a few times. My boss committed me to have the campaign done in mid-March when we kicked off on Feb 27.
The two employees supporting me in building the initiative are fresh out of college and haven't received any training on the tech stack. My boss insists on being part of every planning call, rather than me taking it independently, like I used to at my last job.
Instead of following a basic planning structure (get key stakeholders for a kick off call - the usual drill) - my boss tells me to skip it and keep things moving. We presented some creative concepts and verbiage to leadership and they hated it and asked us why we are not following the standard process.
Everything I'm directed to do by my boss extends the timeline and blows up in my face
I feel like a failure. I have 8 years of industry experience - I know the industry and products well. But the micromanagement and demands to move faster than everyone else's standard timeline is really stressing me out. I'm in tears every day and literally have a pillow next to my desk (I work remote) so I can scream into it. It's impossible to concentrate and get work done. What would you do in this situation? Jump ship? Stick it out? I have a come to Jesus talk with my bosses boss later today to explain my struggles....
