I started a new job which I like, in a senior position, but the company is small and there is one member who has been recruited from a different field and is out of her depth.
Everyone is trying to work with this member of staff, but she is making life difficult for all the old time employees, let alone me who’s just started. She talks down to all the senior members of staff that know all about the specialist field we are in and have been here for in excess of 15 years each. The boss is money driven and has no people management skills and really does not care about anything else let alone working relations, so there is no point in going to him.
At the moment we all try and ignore the sarcastic comments, which the boss can overhear, but does nothing to stop. There is no union in the business I’m in so that’s not an option, I cant afford to take a dip in pay as there aren’t many other jobs in our field at the moment. It’s like the school bully situation but at work!
We should not have to put up with it. There is no way to prove the stuff we are putting up with and as professional people we should not have to so what can we do help!
