Manager who is not my manager giving me work? What to do?
There is a manager at work who is always going over my manager and giving me work. He has been spoken to many times about not going through the proper channels. I don't mind the work, but I don't know what the expectation is - if I'm expected to do as he asks, or if he needs to talk to my manager first before giving me work. How do I address this issue with my supervisor?
