Sorry for long post .
I work in a software industry and my current boss doesnot have management skills as he was promoted to this position when my hiring manager left the company in 6 months after I joined.
My current boss was my peer and been with the company many years .Here are couple of situatons I faced and would like your insight and next steps please as in my entire career never faced a toxic environment and boss.
Also we dont have an HR and I am completely lost how to handle.
1.Never appreciates my work though other team members and upper management have given good feedback.In 1-1 meetings he lectures me a lot and not listen to my justifications .
2.No management skills at all and other cross funtional VP's have also identified that he is lacking those skills .
3. I manage a small team and keeps telling me to be hands off in day to day activities and need to focus on bigger things .Never gives guidance what these bigger things are .
I am currently looking for jobs and takes time to find one .In the meatime how should I handle this and have some peace of mind .
