Hi all,

Need some feedback! I am a warehouse manager with an on-site schedule. I just got Covid and my Plant Manager asked if I could WFH via email.

I’ve been with the company for 7 months and am starting to realize the toxicity in the work environment. Very “money first, people last” type of leadership, and that’s not what I subscribe to.

This sudden request WFH without a well wish or show of concern, has me about ready to “open to work” ring on my LinkedIn profile. Am I overreacting?

Could you share other example of toxicity and is it all with the same person? So can’t comment regarding the company.

In this particular situation, just say that you’re not well and won’t be available. Set hard boundaries and it will go a long way.

Not all with the same person, the”HR” person and Production Planner have made operational suggestions pertaining to my department and have cleared them with the plant manager wirhout my knowing or agreement. My plant manager and HR person had a meeting with one of my employees reprimanding her without my knowledge, another manager has cussed at my employee during work hours, my plant manager is cutting corners for a Big Box customer instead of asking for a deadline extension (supply chain is a global issue so idk why this isn’t an option for him), which has added 2nd shifts and saturday production and increased stress levels across the board. It’s chaotic.

Doesn’t sound like you’re overreacting to me. But, if you want to be truly out on sick leave, then it doesn’t hurt to send them coverage details so they can keep things moving while you’re removed to recuperate. Hopefully they’re willing to accept you setting this sick leave boundary.

Good luck, get some rest and get better soon!

Hii Sharks, I am currently with 12 L fixed and due for promotion within 6 months then my fixed might go with around 15.5 L with extra variable pay in PwC only. In pwc WFH option is there.

Now I got offer from KPMG where there are giving 16 L fix + 1 L JB. Also HR gave one day more to discuss. In KPMG need to go office at Bangalore.

Now is it worth to switch KPMG with that package by considering WOO, tax 30% effect ?

What amount I can tell KPMG to make my switch from PWC ?

Help me leads.

Hi all, I’m currently at B of A in the Raleigh NC area and looking for a remote/hybrid role. I have 14 YOE with the majority of that in retail leadership.

I understand his job isn’t as flexible but even when it was during Covid he had an excuse and I would be the one going to see him and spending weeks leaving behind my day to day to spend time with him. Am I wrong for wanting more effort and flexibility on his end?
