Anyone working with insecure managers who are jealous of their subordinates getting ahead of them, or try to create road blocks in their progress, or try to talk behind their backs to senior leadership so they think those people are not doing a good job? This is a tell tale sign of an insecure person in a new leadership position who feels out of his/her element. I have two new managers people like that on my team, and I actually find it funny.

I’d never experienced micromanaging until I met my first M at EY. Demanding to see emails before being sent out and then changing minor words that did not impact context and were purely stylistic.

I’ve certainly experienced people on my team who genuinely wanted to succeed by doing the right things (for job, company, group, client) but also those who work behind my back, trying to undermine me and wanting my job / thinking they are more qualified at it. I don’t think this has anything to do with manager or employee but rather the values of the individual people.

I’ve seen that scenario a few times, and I’ve also seen seniors who believe they’re better than they actually are- not being able to take feedback to their work without misconstruing it as jealousy or need to improve.

Yup, have experienced this directly from a Partner and Senior Manager. SM said to my face that I make him feel insecure.

I have a young team, between 24-28 years old, mostly women. I’ve had several of them tell me that they think they should be promoted after 6 -12 months in the role. There are some that are amazing and I could see fast-tracking them in 18-24 months, but no idea where this expectation of good performance = immediately promoted. Has anyone else experienced this? Am I just old?

This isn’t a question. It’s more of a wish. I can’t wait to find the career and position that makes me feel like I’ve found my place. I bring so much creativity, drive, and excellence to everything I do. I want to be part of a team and company culture that can match that. I won’t settle. I know there’s a great opportunity out there for me. I just have to continue working hard, searching high and low, and remaining open to all possibilities. Like if you can relate. 💙

Not trying to generalize here but in my career I have encountered this multiple times. Other females at work feel threatened by me instead of working together effectively and efficiently. I don’t look at others or other females as a threat. I am trying to be better for ME, not better than YOU. Not interested in taking your job; I’m just trying to plant my seed somewhere. If you notice you’re like this, DO BETTER & BE BETTER. Women in the workforce have come too far to work against each other.
