The misused project manager

This article identifies as some of the more prevalent ways that organizations misuse their project managers: 1) allowing their skills to be exploited by other departments; 2) forcing project managers to be immersed in their project, risking stress and burnout; 3) expecting project managers to work at lower end of their skills, or even performing basic tasks like copying; and 4) resisting the project manager's skill development. Organizations that routinely misuse their project managers in this way suffer consequences such as high employee turnover, early burnout, and a negative perception of the project management profession. For those seeking a new position, warning signs are offered on how to spot an organization likely to misuse project managers.
