Have you ever gone to war with a senior member and won? A senior Director out here, is straight up trying to get me fired and has shat on me to HR. I’m utilizing the help of a few VPs to stay alive

Yes. A senior director in my 2nd year threatened me that he could ruin my career because I had to take time off of the project and he couldn't find a replacement or anyone else to take on the work. I told him to bring it on, in the same tone in which he threatened me. Then, I called my partner and let him know. The partner stood by me and got me rolled off the project. That director was later let go from the firm about a year later. The alternative could be no one stood for me, and I would have been counselled out.

Never war, and never internally but all I can say is document everything. Every interaction. Every email. Every text. Every breath. Best of luck. It sounds stressful.

Don’t fight to stay in a toxic environment. At least ensure if you stay that you transfer out of your space

Do you feel like the term “offshore” is derogatory and also belittling to our India colleagues? I’d personally like to see it erased from our ZS vocabulary.
