Do You Feel Taken Advantage Of?

If you feel like your being taken advantage of then you probably are. Nothing makes a job miserable faster than a bad boss—particularly the kind who has no qualms overworking the staff. Sure, sometimes you’re going to be asked to go above and beyond your duties, and you’ll have to comply because that’s just part of being a team player. But feeling unappreciated or like you’re constantly being taken advantage of is absolutely not in anyone’s job description. A good boss knows the motivating power of recognition and should be acknowledging you both one-on-one and in group settings.

Many managers are short-staffed, and if they don’t have the ability to bring on more employees, they tend to take advantage unknowingly maybe sometimes knowingly of the employees they do have. One way to know weather or not you feel taken advantage of is the tactics they may use to get you to go above and beyond. Incentive? Maybe it they deliver on their promise.

If your manager repeatedly promises that a pay raise or even a promotion to “ lead Sonographer” or supervisor is around the corner but doesn’t deliver, you’re getting jerked around, And if you wait to address the issue, you could be hurting your long-term earning potential, since your next job offer will probably be based on the salary at your current job.

Do you have the misfortune of working for a “praise thief”—a manager who steals credit you’re your ideas? Reclaiming ownership will enable you to gain visibility within the company and make a good impression on the higher ups, which can potentially lead to a job opportunity in another department (away from your boss).

A few years back I worked as the technical director at two cardiology offices. I was hired into an empty department and left to figure it out. Literally! I started these offices before they were even open to get them up and running successfully. From the Ultrasound equipment, to the PACS system, to the schedule…and so on…they put me there and then left me to figure it out! The kicker was when it was all said and done…the practice administrator took all the credit! For book purposes I will call her Alex. You know the one I’m speaking about, the devil in the dress from the movie Fatal Attraction. Que the gasp, but I’m not kidding! You’ll read more about Alex and her “close to bunny boiling” moments in my upcoming book!
