Several of my managers knew which end was up, and spent most of their time with the rookies helping them grow their business. My last district had four veteran (over 20 years) reps. We would call him if we needed some horsepower in an account or to schmooze a chef or owner.

My current DSM is what I guess they call a macro manager- because he's literally uninvolved, never available and uninterested in any of us. It seems his only priority is himself and protecting his power base. I know that we currently have the lowest unemployment we have ever seen in our lifetimes, so it's a job hunters market. I think we all need to use that to our advantage and not get stuck in a dead end situation.

My DSM sits behind a computer all day spewing out DSMs and how much more we should be doing while they have no idea who my customers are, their names, or why they buy from us.

Sounds like your DSM has drank the Kool-Aid.
