This week is my first week with my new (sub)team. Since Wednesday, my Indian boss has been after my throat – blowing up the minutest of issues, blaming me for mistakes of my replacement on my previous team, and threatening to pull me from my current team.
I got pissed. I got mad. I cursed. My blood pressure shots up. I get stressed when I see an unread email from him.
My teammates caution me not to butt heads with the guy. People management has been his problem. And when he starts ganging up on you, he will be relentless. They advice to just take the blows as they come. That what I am currently going through is much milder than what they have experienced.
Now I know why the senior experts, who were the original builders of the application we are supporting, resigned. That has given me more reason to start hunting for a new job. Aatakihin pa ako sa puso dahil sa kanya.
