Can a Senior Manager who otherwise has a good reputation, get fired for bullying? If not, will this person still make it to partner? There seems to be a lack of transparency in firms around this

I hope you have recovered from this incident. It doesn’t sound fair that they promote people who treat others disrespectfully. This person will suffer one day because of his/ her actions.

I would say if an HR complaint is raised it may be used for firing if required and his network also cannot support . You never know as exceptions may also be made.

Personnel issues aren't supposed to be transparent.

I've seen bullies "counselled out" and many left after not get promoted, but certainly not all of them. And no one will ever say why someone is let go. That type of transparency is simply not going to happen. I've never seen a company formally say why someone is fired.

You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything said to you. True power is sitting back and observing things with logic. True power is restraint. If words control [contd]

Has anyone heard of being able to take a LOA (unpaid) for an extended period of time 3-6 months or even more to be able to pursue a personal passion or even side business. Given the current climate, not sure if it would be easier or harder to ask for a unpaid voluntary leave. Really considering starting a business but want a job as a fall back.
