promotion from hell - please help

hi cs

I have been working for a company for about 6 months and i got promoted to work in the finance dept - I must say that its horrible, as in like, i can do the job but i have two bosses who are impossible to please, my work gets done and they don't realise that! It seems as though my efforts are fruitless. CS I hate going to work and I think I am now getting physically ill! I battle to wake up every morning - i will get up and not have the energy to get out of bed!

How can I make them to agree to putting me to my previous position? it is still vacant, or am i just a failure who wants to quit. My eyes are forever teary and I am developing this hatred for these two women! I can be given any duty and I will peform it very well, but the atmosphere is killing me slowly.

Is there an HR department or person with whom you can discuss these problems ? I don't know whether or not your previous position is still vacant, but you can surely ask, and why not ask to return to it, making it clear to the boss on that side that while you were fully capable of the work in the new post, you found the situation and management there unpleasant to work with.

Sitting complaining is not going to get you any where, and if people give you suggesting you don't atke it.

Well here it is again speak to them and tell them how you feel and that you wan;t to sort out things.

Can't you take some leave that they can't refuse - maybe if you are away they will realise how much you do and how good you are and the atmosphere could be different on your return. I hope it works out for you - Take care.
