Hi all. If you have ever encountered passive aggressive teammates, did you raise this situation to your direct report? If so, what was your approach and how did you deliver the feedback? This particular teammate is beginning to create a toxic work environment for me and I would like to diffuse this situation amicably, as performance reviews are near.

I told my managers. I was pretty straightforward with the situation and how I felt about the toxicity. They talked to the guy who was making me feel that way and eventually got him transferred out because there has been other reports of him being that way.

I have tried talking directly and sympathetically with the guy, seeking common ground and places where we don't impinge. That worked about 50%.

How to push for promotion? I am doing much more and much better than peers at the level above me. Ie: level of hires, time to fill, number of hires, building partnerships with internal stakeholders.

I love my job and the people I work with, but there’s one thing that really bothers me: the lack of diversity. Sometimes when I walk into the office and see everyone else around me as the only POC, it feels kind of weird. I don’t think anyone here has ever said anything racist or sexist to me personally, but I don’t feel comfortable talking about these issues with anyone because they might take it personally and then things could get awkward between us.

Need job advice:

I recently got an offer at a prestigious company making almost double what I make now (OTE). It is also a promotion on the job title which will help for long term career prospects.

The only downfall is I also have a final round interview with literally my dream job later this week.

The company who gave me the offer wants an answer before Thanksgiving. Do I take the good offer and run with it? Or do I roll the dice at the chance at my dream job?

Gearing up for a salary negotiation discussion for my promotion to Senior Account Director. I have checked Glassdoor and Linkedin for market rate on this role and see between $120K-$135K nationally.
