Stupid Engineer manager

I am in this company for about 4 mths.

During the 3 mths probation, My Engineer manager have nothing for me to do.
I am sitting there for 3 mths doing nothing.

Now after confirmation, I am ask to do quality issue which my position is Sales Engineer.
The worst thing come when the company bring in new products and he without the knowledge ask me to go find out more about this products and teach the Sales Executive team.

I mean even him as a Engineer manager know nothing about the new products, how can he expect me to teach the team?

I have resigned last friday but this morning he ask me to quickly find out all the information and do a presentation coming Monday. Do you think he is unreasonable?

Re: Stupid Engineer manager

a mgr is there to manage.... nt to knw tech stuff....

if u r an engineer be it sales eng or pre sales or post sales eng.... a new product u suppose to pick it up.... if a mgr do the work himself he wan u for wat.....

i basiclly work under a mgr who knws nuts abt tech for 5 yrs... be4 i sit his pos n look at the same ting on others.... once anyone go up to mgnt level... they dont look at tech liao....back then when i was an eng reporting to him i arguee with him on projects.... bt end of the day... aft u explian to him in biz terms he understand n he will go do the rest...

Re: Stupid Engineer manager

i see nothing wrong in what the manager has done besides his poor time management. managers are not necessarily technical experts, their job scope is to have a high level view and manage, your job on the other hand is to know specifically about your product (unless that is not your job scope?). neither are managers suppose to babysit us along the way, most of the time, we are suppose to go out on our own and find out what we need to find out and get shit done by ourselves. if a deadline is unrealistic, let them know.

Re: Stupid Engineer manager

Sama sama, my manager is younger than me, from India, with multiple MBAs, and he collects degrees and diplomas as a hobby.

So, don't worry, just do your job, and search for a new job.

Guess his age... not even 20 years old, and yet can have 3 MBAs and 1 Masters in Finance, collect general degrees and diplomas as a hobby.

And the strangest thing is that he is in a technical manager post, working in CICSO system.

Only use his mouth to talk, and can talk whole day without working.

Re: Stupid Engineer manager

I believe there are always such managers around.

People usually quit a job, not due to the company, but rather because of the manager.

Re: Stupid Engineer manager

hmmm base on wat i've seen so far... i beleive a decade later the new generation of female mgnt will be bad managers...

currently so far wat i've seen n work with ppl basiclly maybe 3/10 guys mgr will sit n pt finger at ppl to do tings... female maybe 5/10....

10 yrs later when the Y generation take over... it be like 5/10 guy mgr will sit n pt finger and 9/10 female will do tat...

i'm sorry to say recessions time useless mgnt ppl will be 1st to go cos pay high n gd for nothing... where those gt skill mgnt ppl can always downgrade themself go back become eng.... remb tat in engineering foundation principals doesnt chagne... technology change... so to pick up technology is nt hard if foundation is strong....
