Need advice about my job.


Hey ladies,

Hopefully some of you are going through what I'm going through and can offer some good womanly wisdom with how to deal with my issue.
I am an executive assistant at a big company. I work directly for the owner and have been doing so for a while. Do I love my job? no...not at all. But I get enough freedom (come when I want leave when I want and not tied to my desk) respect, and management opportunity (manage the office employees) to stay here. When I first started, exec asst wasn't my job title, it was project coordinator but it changed based on my skills and his needs, and that's fine, it's only a title. The problem is, he brought in a new employee to work in head office, and I feel like she's trying to take over my job. The rumors are is that she is sleeping with her, are they true? probably. I believe them. there's too many signs that say that he is. I feel like she's jealous that he relies on me so much and has convinced him to make her a director lol she is now in charge of me. I dread coming to work every morning and dread seeing her, I'm not the only one who feels this way I know, other employees have confided in me. My question is, should I start looking for another job or wait it out and see what happens. With the holidays coming up and the economy being the way it is, is it smart to start looking and leave a place that I know I can stay as long as I choose to in. What would all of you do?

if i were you..

I'd definitely start looking. That does not sound like a good situation to be in. And it may only get worse.

There's no harm in looking is there? Don't quit your job until you have found something and it's a 'sure thing'. There are lots of good jobs out there and it sounds like you've got some good experience now so you shouldn't have too many problems finding something. Good luck!

Look around.

Whether she is sleeping with him or not is irrelevant. The point is you feel uncomfortable with the new set up and this sounds like it could get sticky. I would definitely look for another job. You said you don't love yours anyway and if your boss is dumb enough to make decisions with his $$$$ then there will be very little hope for career advancement. Good luck!
