i like my job, my team, my coworkers, and my VP.
in-between me and my VP, there exists a director. nice guy, wants to be everyone's buddy...which means he does as little as possible to manage, plan, skirts responsibility, avoids confrontation or advocacy for his team. he's always johnny-on-the-spot when [major brand client] calls and wants a contact @ our co., but unavailable when his team is in the line of fire or resourced inadequately for a project.
i'm new to this experience. how do i turn this frown upside-down?
(anon because a few coworkers are on mefi, thanks)
