The VP I report to is an extreme micromanager...the latest example is they sent me an email around 10:00 PM last night asking me to put a quote together for a client. That is no big deal that is my job, also not a big deal is the slack message I received this morning at asking if I had put the quote together.
Where I get frustrated is when I told them that the quote was done and sent per their request, they said "Ok, you need to let me know this stuff so I do not have to hunt you down and ask in the future."
I take issue with this because I was asked to do something within the scope of my job, and I did it. I am not a child, I do not need to be checked on every 5 minutes to make sure I am doing what I am paid to do. There has not been an instance where I have not completed a task or not done something when I have been asked.....This includes things outside of the scope of my role that I have been willing to take on...This is not the only thing this particular VP has done to display their tendency to micromanage people, but I am getting sick of it.
Would love some advice on how to have a conversation with them about their apparent trust issues.
