So I just resigned from a role my boss didn’t want to define for 4 years that I had to define my own, but not really given the respect as a PM. Now my current boss wants me to help them hire a replacement, when I said they need to decide what role they want to hire for because mine was not clearly defined but few jobs in one, they said they need somebody that does few jobs. I don’t want to write up my replacement’s job scope for them when they didn’t bother to define or respect mine (cont.)
