I’m not naming any names, obviously, or identifying you in any way. But you told me that other team members wouldn’t like me if I expressed the fact that I like my mentor’s father. I’m sorry, that’s just pathetic. Anytime that the majority of team members need to build their own self esteem by looking down on others it’s an *extremely* bad sign. And, since there was an abusive and predatory individual in charge for a decade I’m not particularly surprised by that serious weakness in the firm’s culture and integrity.
Note to readers: “Workplace Issues” is a work of creative nonfiction based on my true story of being bullied. It’s told in a series of open letters.
