i have joined a consulting firm 2months ago as a senior BA; i have a medical degree with few yrs of clinical experience but no consulting experience.
i joined a project 1 week ago but the senior consultant (acting manager) is not welcoming at all, she dismiss my ideas without explaining why wrong, does not engage me in conversation and if i asked a question her reply would be to align with the other BA. She would assign me only graphics to do very little content working. One time i asked a question to clarify something she stopped meeting and asked the other BA if they understood; they all did, so she replied by “thank you”.
it has been only a week.
to note its my first project and the principal debriefed me on projec; he then asked her to on-board me on project, she didn’t but rather told a BA to do so. And she is good and welcoming to the other BAs
problems: 1. I am not really benefiting alot. 2. I am not involved in discussion anymore. 3. I don’t ask her during meetings any questions anymore. 4. It’s disrespectful
should i address it to the principal directly (who is hands on; daily meeting with the team)?
how should I approach that situation?
shouldn't the manager be coaches for new joiners? do they expect new joiners to be fully engaged and fully aware of ppt and excel function?
