My 💁🏻‍♂️ boss watches YouTube all day and leaves at 630 most days while I’m stretched between multiple projects and stuck working until 11 or even later. I feel like I’m drowning.

This type of behavior, looking busy and not getting anything done must be taught in Manager Training Sessions because it's a classic strategy of underhanded delegation... And the most conscientious person on the team will pick up all the slack. It's BS! Not fair to you or anyone in this situation. Apart from you being stretched and stressed, you're boss is getting paid to watch You Tube! Push back by letting your boss know your work is going to suffer because you're pulled in too many directions. Ask your boss to take a portion of the project or suggest a co-worker that has less going on to assist. It's only a matter of time before you become a victim of Burnout or disgruntled. Protect your sanity at all costs and take care of yourself! ❤

Not saying or doing anything won’t fix anything. They’re not going to fire you if you ask how this can change. Have a convo with HR explaining that you’re working absurd hours and is there room in the SOW to add more people to the team. Don’t make the convo about your boss. If HR says there’s no help coming, leave. And skewer your boss in the exit interview

I don’t know how to confront the situation and I’m afraid of any repercussions.

Get out. Seriously

Don't go to HR, that department has nothing to do with it. Tell your boss you're swamped and need help with your workload. Exactly like that. Obviously, don't mention anything about what she's doing.

I am potentially getting an offer from Meta as a product manager, in active interviews now. Any comp gut checks available for an L4 or L5 product manager? They won’t give solid info on comp until the offer, I don’t want to waste my time. Also, any insight into work/life balance in this type of role would also be helpful. My current role is super flexible and I am pretty happy, so it’s about more than comp increase to me.

Im starting a new job but still employed somewhere else. I was trying to be open about staying at BOTH places. My current job won’t let me be part time because they don’t allow “set schedules”. Yet I am one of the only reliable and loyal employees in the department, and currently working a set schedule. So why will they not let me continue a set schedule but with different hours? This place is more focused on strict policies and not actually trying to work their employees and being flexible.

Woke up in a panic attack. Shaking and feeling my chest like it wants to explode. Really want to stay home 😔 but forcing myself to get to work.
