Need advice before I do/say something crazy!
I’m feeling very upset, stressed out and annoyed with work. I was hired to work for 3 people and was told my focus would be to help with acct management , making sure I stay on top of my bosses to stay connected with their clients with follow up meetings, calls, making sure we give clients the data they need or request etc.
I do a lot of scheduling meetings and calls overall.
About 4 months into starting this position, a new partner asked if I would mind helping him to do basically the same thing for him and his team. I said it was fine because I don’t know how to say NO!
Fast forward a bit… I am now helping 4 partners, doing expense reports for 6 people, getting email requests from other colleagues to see if I can schedule internall meetings, coordinating travel, etc.
I have now let the ball drop on quite a few things because I’m OVERWHELMED! I’m getting questioned about things not being done and my bosses are probably starting to doubt that I am actually getting all requests done.
My question is.., I’m supposed to report to one out of the 4 partners and I really think he doesn’t have enough respect for me (in my mind). I feel like I want to tell him that i feel like I’m doing more than I thought I was hired to do but not sure how that would sound. He’s not the one who keeps me busy the most, but since I’ve started helping the new partner, I don’t communicate with him as much as I used to. This newer partner has me doing things I don’t care to do- He is super busy! I just can’t handle his calendar anymore and staying on top off all the emails I’m copied on for him.
It’s bad enough that I don’t want to work to begin with. Now I’m dealing with this.
Is it better to be fired and collect unemployment or just quit?
I honestly just want to hand in my resignation letter aSAP but not in a position to do that financially.
I’m so annoyed and feel like I’m about to lose it any day now.
