What do you do when your manager is micromanaging to the point that it actually has a negative impact on the work?

They're not taking any fair feedback and discussion points from myself of the team, giving circular feedback for the sake of feeding back which is having a knock-on effect on timeli, and generally causing the work and morale to suffer.

Dealing with this now too. Have no advice to give, just solidarity

uplifting

I ask them out

I left. Then made sure when they applied at my current agency I made it known how bad they were for the work and morale.

talk to them, find out the reason for their feedback and let them know its impact on the work (from an objective POV, like timelines and stuff). then work with them to fix it.

i did the same with my boss, he stepped back, stopped being a bottleneck, and started giving high level feedback rather than sitting in edit sessions, etc.

if they don’t respond well to it…then see the other comments about leaving.

Definitely dealing with this right now. Working with a CD who who is constantly in the weeds rather than thinking bigger picture. 3 campaigns they've led have failed and won't listen, reasonably, to feedback. Instead, they're finding "successful"/"safe" places to interject themselves.

Keep having conversations. Keep voicing your opinion. Keep pressing on. You will be heard and eventually a solution will be spoken into existence.

1. Re-route all money in Congress towards the goal of saving 100% of the lives of ALL eggs once they’re fertilized. At. All. Costs. Call it Operation Super Warp Speed 2.0 for kicks and giggles.

2. Postpone all decisions regarding Roe until the goal is accomplished.

3. Once the goal is reached, ban all abortions. ALL of them. Pregnant women can opt for losing their kid, but never can contact the child. Ever. No exceptions. No changing your mind.
