Original boss quit, and her boss is now managing us - I've been picking up the slack of things he's missing, or doesn't know about (because he really doesn't know what is going on) and I'm also doing my own duties.
I know what is a priority and what isn't, and I am extremely good at prioritizing. He still emails me and asks me about extremely low priority things and asking when they'll be done. I'm 32 weeks pregnant and working 45+ hours a week (I don't want to be). How do I get him to realize that I'm doing as much as I can and trust that I know how to do my job?
I feel like he thinks I don't know what I'm doing. My original boss never did this to me, and I get it's a new person, but he's trying to do his job and fill her shoes at the same time without actually knowing everything about what she was doing (I'm will probably sound cocky, but I'm the one who knows the best on our team what needs to be done). It's been a month and a half, and he still doesn't seem to know what is going on, he's trying to manage it and he really doesn't. We waste time in meetings because he doesn't know how to get to the point. I've done a couple 1:1s with him and they're an hour long and I get through like 2 things on my list. My old boss and I could get through 10 things in 30 minutes. It's truly infuriating.
We have annual reviews coming up so I don't want to say something I'll regret, because he's reviewing us with really know knowledge of what we've actually been doing all year. I just don't know what to do. On top of all the things I do, I'm trying to plan for what to do while I'm gone on Maternity Leave, and train in some people to pick up those tasks... I just feel frustrated and lost
