Continue kicking ass and making your Manager look good. You'll get your recognition so who cares unless client work is negatively impacted. Also Snitches get stitches.

Myself and my team of three do everything. Client knows it. Not sure internal leadership does. In fact, she creates a layer between my team and my ability to work with internal leadership and I don't know how to address it.

Tell your leadership. If the manager is that clueless then you'll be fine. You'll all fair poorly if client rolls EY off.... and if it transpires you knew then leadership won't be haooy

*happy

Hence the layoffs....

Totally in the boat right now and working to resolve with my admin mgr or rolling off the project.

EY1 I get you. I'm literally just a lot more...capable? Motivated? Serious about my career? (All of those in one) than this manager. I feel leadership is suffering by having this person onsite. There are a lot of opportunities to be had and this person just isn't in the game.

Perseverance. People will notice. This is a marathon not a sprint.
