Hi I would encourage to talk openly, honestly about how you feel. It might be difficult, but if nothing will change after ….. we’ll, you would need to think about next steps…..

I’ve always had great bosses/team leads here (looks like you’re also in HR)- how long have you been here? Suggest switching teams if you don’t feel like it’s a good fit!

My manager was abusive to me all year while I was going through a very difficult time with my family (my father was super sick and almost died). I’m in Corp Functions, where you can’t just switch your PL (who is also your manager) with the click of a mouse. I finally got my PL switched last week. I’m so much happier!

I actually have the same problem with a male boss. He was super condescending and gaslight me every opportunity he had I now have a boss female seems like she’s drinking the coffee I’m not too sure still filling her out. I’m always hopeful that people will learn how to behave in workspaces but they can’t .

Had this experience with a female boss. I am a black woman and when she hired me I was so excited to also work for a black woman for the first time. Representation matters and I thought she could be someone I could look up to. She ended up being the worst boss I've ever had and I really did feel she had something against me. I worked very hard and I gave results but that wasn't good enough. Sometimes you just gotta leave there isn't any point in trying to win them over. Trust me.

She refuses to move to a nursing/retirement home, look for companionship, and seek professional help for tasks she needs done such as car maintenance, insurance inquiries, etc. (Cont’d)

There is a paralegal (not mine) in my firm that is making everyone miserable.
