Stay away from that slime bag and find more people to connect with - Differentiate yourself from him, be intentional about how your portraying the work your doing, but never throw him back under the bus. Two wrongs, never make a right.

Thank you for this. Fortunately analysts are working individually on separate projects with other teams, so hopefully this problem will not persist. Right now we are just onboarding and there is a lot of communication needed to get onboard. I wish he is as transparent with me as I am with him. I saved his ass so many times and don’t want to purposely blind him cuz thats not who I am. Not sure if it is a language barrier or not but it’s just super annoying

Just ignore. You have to have a thick skin in this business. Remember that you work for yourself. We're all contractors at the end of the day, and your only focus should be gaining the knowledge that you need to sell that to the highest bidder after 2 years. Don't even consider sticking around after that. Don't worry about the political games, kissing ass, doing extra work etc - all of that is BS. Maybe your colleague will get promoted before with a 5-10% bump, but you will be jumping to another firm for 30%.

If this really bothers you, then you need to stand up for yourself. They may be the first, but definitely not the last.

Yeah, nothing wrong with that approach. At least you have good awareness of the situation. You’ll make the right decision.

On that last one: “I am 99% certain you were solely responsible for that task. In what recordable format would you prefer me to use going forward to avoid this confusion”

Even better- address it with the mgr at the time. “I appreciate you mentioning this. My part (abc) were actually done; that other person was to do (def) and I even reminded them of it. We’re all human and I get mistakes happen but think its worth the conversation to clear up accountability for this miss”

Stay as far away from such people as possible. They drag you down!

Welcome to the working world!

I have one foot out the door in my current role (was unhappy pre-Covid, has become worse during Covid)...and I am having a challenging time in my personal life currently, Both of these things combined I feel are effecting my feedback style. I am a little shorter, easily frustrated & unmotivated. I worry I am making it harder for my creative team who I care about a lot. Im not sure how to address it, as it feels fairly personal. Has anyone been in a similar scenario & did you get past it?
