So I need some advice here. I'm a CFO and I work in a very hostile work environment. The ED, who is also my boss, is the cause of the hostile environment. He's completely unprofessional and yells and cusses at people. He gets upset and throws a temper tantrum where he's throwing paper and just carrying on. Many people in the department are intimidated by him and I've noticed that he's a very insecure leader. Recently, an employee resigned. She completed the exit interview and had negative things to say about my boss. Well, HR sent him the exit interview and he sent it to me . The exit interview is supposed to be confidential so I don't know why HR sent it to him and didn't investigate the things the former employee mentioned. I also don't know why my boss sent it to me, but I'm sure I'm not the only person he sent it to. I've been fortunate enough thus far to avoid his wrath. I try to keep our interactions limited while I continue my stealth mission to find a new job. So he comes to my office the other day and just starts going off about the exit interview. I was completely uncomfortable. He stated that the employee was a bum and loser, and that he'd make sure she never gets hired at any of the company's other locations or our partner companies. He called her a "B" and used other profane language. I've been dodging my boss ever since the incident and the good thing is he's been out of the office for the past couple of days. I guess he needed a sounding board, but it's not me! I was offended by his language and behavior, and his immature sentiments towards the employee. I'm impartial when it comes to the past employee; we were simply colleagues and I didn't know her that well, but as a woman I found his rant to be anti-woman for sure. But the fact that he's also bad mouthing her to others is wrong. I read her comments. She simply stated that it was a hostile and dysfunctional work environment, there was no room for advancement, and that the ED isn't supportive. She didn't go into details about his behavior which I'm sure she witnessed in the time that she worked for the company. And her comments were true. I feel an obligation to say something to HR because I'm a manager and not only have I witnessed his behaviors, but he got me involved when he sent me the info in an e-mail. At the same time, I don't trust HR because they shared confidential information. What can I do? What should I do? I know I definitely need to leave and I'm working on that, but at the same time, I feel that my time here is a waste. Is he going to bad mouth me too if I leave or provide a bad review? Is it safe to put this job on my resume knowing how HR and my boss act? Do I just find a new job and leave others here to suffer?
