I was supposed to have a year-end recap meeting with my boss as part of our employee development program. It was originally scheduled for Wednesday and my boss cancelled it at the last minute and tried to reschedule it closer to the end of the year. I explained that I was going to be off at that time but suggested that we meet late Friday afternoon after our management team meeting. This was the last opportunity to do it as I was going to be off for the remainder of the year. She agreed to this.
After our off-site meeting on Friday, nothing was said about meeting after once we wrapped up for the day. I assumed that we would still be meeting so I headed back to the office to prepare for my holidays and and meet with my boss.
She never showed up or called to cancell the meetng. I was livid, but I waited until 5:00 before going home, I intended on sneaking out a little early. I had left my car at the hotel where we had our offsite and noticed her car was still there when I went and picked it up. I since found out that she joined some of our managers at the pub for a couple of drinks.
Part of my anger to this was that I had spent most of the Thursday evening working on a problem for one of the other managers in my group so they could meet one of there deadlines. Nothing was said about this, eventhough I had to work to 1:30. The other manager got a good job when me met his deadline.
My question is, do I mention this broken engagement and lack of acknowledgement to my boss and let her know how upset I was with this? We don't have a great relationship, but I believe in being open and honest.
I will have the opportunity to address this behavior on a employee opinion survey and 360 feedback. But these are generic surveys that don't look for specific examples of issues. I think in this case being specific about the issue would go further. But then again it just might get me labeled as a complianer.
