Every morning before I start my work day, my boss demands that I send a detailed agenda of what I’ll be doing and when I’ll be doing it. They actually get mad if I forget to include something on the agenda… Is this a sacrifice I should’ve expected to make when I took a remote position, or is my boss just crazy?

Definitely crazy. I’m mostly remote and my manager and I have a catch up call once a week. He knows what my job entails and that I’m getting it done - no need for a daily list.

Micromanager! I’d ask them (nicely) why they need you to have such a detailed agenda and what you could do to start phasing it out. If that doesn’t work, then definitely leave.

Your boss is crazy, there’s no respect or trust there. You gotta get out

I haven't. You're right, I should definitely try and start a conversation to see if there's any reasoning behind the behavior.

I’ve never experienced this at a single bulge bracket in 10 years. Should note that I have always been in non-financial/compliance risk management roles going between front office and middle, but it seems like your manager likes to micro manage or has some trust issues. Playing devil’s advocate to myself, is your team very operational (e.g, needs to report tasks completed and reviewed in a day but lacks a system)? Or could this be a directive from their manager? In the end, if that information is not being used beyond their own personal needs, that would drive me to at least look for a spot on another team.

Run away fast! That’s absolutely nuts. Things change during the course of a day, so,etchings taken loner than expected, some less. This is micromanaging to,an extreme. Get out as fast as you can.

If it helps, my boss ambushed me with an 'investigation' to include HR, in which IT records for the times I'd logged in every morning for the past 6 months were pulled up.

They then had the audacity to say in our BAU 1:1 today that "the quality of my work is very good"...?

Naturally, I've begun looking elsewhere.
