Need career advice
I am so frustrated with my job lately! I have worked there 14 years and done my current job for 9. In the past 9 years I had two kids and the dept. re-structured so bosses who trained me left and I am supervised by all new people who do not know me or my work history. My co-worker has an almost identical work history to me but started 2 years later. He has a SAHW and was given more opportunities to train on software. I have an employed husband with an erratic schedule. Our job requires travel, often overnight. Since we re-structured my co-worker has been sent on any new large assignment in the area. These losses were split between us before my old boss retired. So after 2-3 years of all the new, large assignments going to my co-worker, I am now having to “train” with him to learn how to do the work (even though I used to handle this independently). I have three bosses and expressed my frustration to one who said there is no issue with my work. I feel like he is just giving my lip service. I am so irritated and really don’t know how to handle this! I really feel like the bosses have all made a lot of assumptions about my experience and invested in my co-worker’s development at my expense. They all assume he has done the job longer and act like he is the authority on everything. Meanwhile, they treat me like I am incompetent. I would appreciate anyone’s perspective who can relate.
