Last Minute Boss

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about a boss and deadlines: I send the project to him and he’ll sit on it until Friday – even after me sending him emails on Weds and Thursday

Every project I work on has clear deadlines. I always meet those deadlines with no problem, until recently. I got a new boss who has to see everything I do (even though there has never been an issue with my work before). I always send him things right after I do them. Say I get a project on Monday that is due next Monday, I work on it Monday/Tuesday send it to him for approvals and wait for him to approve so I can either create the final work or to do changes (which there really are never any, but usually if they are they are VERY picky like “move this over 2 pixels to the right…”Anyway – I send the project to him and he’ll sit on it until Friday – even after me sending him emails on Weds and Thursday, and even bring it up in other meetings with him. Every email mentions the time when I need to have the final files done by, (like Friday afternoon for a Monday morning deadline).
