I recently (about 4 months ago) took on a role as the only PM in my company. I came from a small agency where my role was pretty well defined, and in this new job, I was able to "make my own job description". That sounded really good at the time but now I have no structure and no process, but I'm still expected to be managing projects for people who don't even know what a PM *does*, let alone what I need to be able to do my job. It's gotten to the point where I don't even know if I'm a good PM anymore, or maybe I never was.
What do I do? I feel like I made a huge mistake. I'm 4 months in, so I can't really quit and leave it off my resume.
Oh man. Come sit down.
