My nasty coworker
I have a coworker who plays this psychological warfare on me. How do I deal with her nasty attitude, and manipulating disposition?
I've had this same experience where they won over the boss but were extremely nasty to me. My advice: find a new job where you're treated with respect and kindness.
I had the same type of coworker, who I now recognize as a sociopath, as she was constantly lying to the boss about me, playing manipulative games to benefit her and antagonize me, and she had no remorse or empathy for her behaviors towards me whatsoever--even after I tried to talk to her (her response: "I don't care"). I tried to do my job well, despite her interference. But eventually she won over the boss with her charm and deceit. And as a result, after being assaulted at work by her, I was fired. My advice: steer clear, hope your boss is aware and clear-thinking, and if not start looking for a new job.
I'm at a relatively senior level in my career, and I'm getting married. I'd like to change my name...but I'm concerned about how it could affect my "brand." First of all, people inside my company and out already know me by my maiden name...But also, will it affect my career prospects and make it seem like I am too focused on marriage?
What does it take to get one off the ground successfully? I am thinking of starting one at my company and would love to hear from others about how to encourage as many women at my workplace to join and how to make them engaging and interesting for members. Any ideas for events and programming would be much appreciated!
Who is part of a women's resource group at your company? What do you like most, least?
Can my place of employment use my time off as a reason to not give me my vacation at my yearly renewal of vacation. They are saying since i didn't work the whole year because i took time off for my maternity that they wont give me my yearly vacation now that its due.
