Their sole function is to parrot whatever status their India team provides, and respond to questions with, "Ummm, you know, I'm not sure. Let me talk with my team." Absolutely f-ing useless. Time to boot them out, bring in an eager newbie and get that resource spend down!

We have high turnover (& my boss quit) due to many business/leadership issues. There’s been fires every day. I now wear many hats despite pushing back-make hiring decisions/interview, train, onboard, address issues, do strategy work, client meetings, manage new direct reports, manage extra work, etc. I can’t do my job well.

Any solutions I offer to leadership fall flat due to low budget & fires being priority 😞

I don’t like to micromanage schedules because we all have things going on, but any advice on how I can broach the topic? Edit to add: I haven’t seen much movement on project work (we have a working file and it’s mostly my input so far). I don’t care about being idle if you’re productive.
