Great Co-Workers - Lack of Leadership & Work Life Balance
IT PROJECT MANAGER, UIT PROJECT OFFICE (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – August 31, 2018
Project Manage IT Unified Communications & Infrastructure projects only. Since I failed the PMP exam, I feel I am being pigeon held within these 2 departments. They love me and I like learning about new technology, I just have not had any opportunity to work on Softwware projects or get additional certifications, aside from what is expected: CSM, ITIL, I do love the people I work with and learning both sides of U of U, campus and UUH. Our Associate Director is working on all the software projects and not maturing our PMO. We have no best practices, processes, governance, etc.
Our PMO has a boss and not a leader; unable to take 30 minutes off without marking as sick time. Assumptions are made, keep your head down and do not be expected to be heard. Unless you are special to your boss, you do not get to make your own decisions, work from home, flex hours, and do not go on FMLA. When I went on intermittent FMLA, all my movements were tracked.
Salary, Lack of Growth, Work/Life Balance, Unable to Work Independently
