Just a PM's team right before COVID because I liked working with him and the senior quants. (I'm the most junior of the group with no phd and haven't worked as aquant before as opposed to the other quants). Obviously COVID took that collaborative wind out of my aspirations.
However, that PM got promoted, got bigger responsibilities and a "sub-PM" (with phd) was hired to run my group. Sub-PM is an ex-colleague of the PM/CEO and comes in with enormous political capital.
Issue is the sub-PM is excluding me from meetings and starting to point me towards more programming/IT work. ( needed for our strategies, but places me away from the action). His meetings with the other quants (senior quants w/ ex-HF experience) are very interesting and he has started to implement "in the know" policies. Thus, I'm very angry that I'm just being used as a coding monkey right now.
I could talk to the PM, but I think I have to search for a new role.
Any thoughts on the situation would be greatly appreciated.
