I'm working for X company for almost 4 years now, and as their sales rep for more than a year.
We have two divisions (A and B), and I worked in both divisions as a sales rep. In Division A, me and my boss serves as the sales rep, while in Division B, I'm the only sales rep.
Given that we have different timezones, I'm trying to manage our time wisely in which I set up meetings on my own whenever I get new leads in which I would usually do the pitch to new accounts, however, my boss thinks that I am too independent and that he thought I do not need him, and he wanted to be in the very first meetings to make sure that my accounts would know him too, and that the presentation is perfect. This remark from him made me feel like he is mircromananging me, and made me feel like I am that incompetent. I have no issues having my boss around during my client meetings or calls, but isn't it too much to treat me like a newbie? I can now even close deals.
Can someone share their thoughts? Have you experienced being micromanaged?
