Work Issues


ork is sooooooooo busy that I do not get any time to blog at all. 

However, in spite of the humongous load of work, my boss isn’t happy with me, or make it us.


Going back a couple of months, during the registration period for the Summer term, I was called to my boss’ office and she very politely and very gently told me that I had made ‘several’ mistakes in the past couple of weeks. However, the mistakes were neither specified and nor were the documents with the mistakes shown to me. I didn’t ask either, which I should have.

The next thing that happened was, that my CEO, one day while walking by our department, stopped by my office and asked me if I’m okay with being moved to the marketing department (I am already managing the Social Media for the company as well, so unofficially I am part of the Marketing department too). I told him I don’t have an issue with that. He further add “Do you think you’d be able to do better in marketing”. I am sure, I can do much better in the marketing department. 

However, it did made me wonder, if my immediate boss was unhappy with my performance? As fas I know, the rest of the staff wasn’t free of minor mistakes either. But I don’t think the CEO would talk to me about moving me to another department with my immediate boss’ consent. Although he said we’ll talk about it in October i.e. when the rush of work in my current department is over.

Now to add the last straw was today when my immediate boss sent a vague email to all of us, working in my department. The emails mentioned the following things:

  •  That’s she has witnessed a lot of mis-communication between all of us.
  • wrong information has been provided to customers
  • There’s been no followup with customers 
  • documents are misplaced or lost.

Now i know none of the members of our team as replied to it. I wonder if I should reply? The issue is the whole team is very close, and they are like best friend, including our boss. I am the new girl on the block and mostly treated like an outside. Do you think I need to reply to the email? I doesn’t specify anyone. Personally, I would like to know what issues are specific to me, so I can try to correct that, but I don’t know what is the right way to go about it. 

What would you do?
