I have been in my new current planning position for a few weeks (my first ever, my other experience was with a non-profit consulting agency). I have been learning a lot, it's been great.
Unfortunately, I've also been finding that on my very first projects I am dealing with bosses who tell me to do something and then when I do it and someone gets mad, they won't say they told me to...if that makes sense.
Basically, I had a subdivision case where the applicant didn't get their plans in until the day it was due to be distributed to the PC. My boss was pushing me to do my report even though two of our staff had problems with the plan that needed to be addressed. He said that since it looked like they had addressed them in the resubmittal, I should just do my report. Never mind that if the applicant is turning their $hit in that late, it's not our job to work our a$$e$ off trying to get it done. Then we get a plan commissioner calling about those questions, and I'm left with my d*ick in my hand. When it's my FIRST case (in my life), I think that leaving me there in the dust when I was doing what my boss told me is shady.
I've certainly learned my lesson. Namely, don't rely on anyone else's advice. Does anyone have any other tips about these kinds of situations that could help me in the future?
