Don’t have an advice, but want you to know you are seen. Vent away!

Thank you, that is very appreciated. I've told the CEO multiple times about the issues, I've even gone as far as to send him photo evidence of things this guy is doing to sabotage me/the company. He's also lashed out at other employees in a totally irrational manner. We're a small company, so no HR department, nobody to report this to above the CEO, who just doesn't seem to care. I feel stuck.

Been following this thread for some time as it hits home, but didn’t comment cause haven’t had much to add. Now I have to say this suggestion sounds the best but only if you don’t see it as bluff and are actually willing to walk away. To ease your pain, do you really REALLY like the company where ceo doesn’t listen to their employees and allows this to carry on? I’m doubtful, my guess is you’re a bit scared to leave

Either the employee has something on the CEO or the employee is personally related to the CEO somehow. Either way, he’s not going anywhere unless someone brings a lawsuit against the company for the employee’s actions. Be it sexual or physically/ verbally abusive.

Sorry to hear. I feel you. The key to being fulfilled is to have a good relationship with your boss. I had my boss fired once. AMA. (Caveat: his boss new me before he hired this guy so there was trust between us)

My pet peeve is my work being changed without notification - like screaming banchee kind of mad. Since he is not the boss treat him as so. "Hey Bob, I noticed you are changing my submitted work. While I value collaboration, the final product is up to me. Please do not do it again. Thanks."

This is challenging, because "doing the right thing" won't always mean a good outcome. I can only share a personal anecdote. Many years ago, a group of trustworthy employees met with me in a respectful and non-emotional way to share deep concerns about a manager who was not living up to our expectations and culture. This person was very good at "managing up" and hiding these behaviors. It became clear that most of the team was on edge, thinking about leaving, and business suffered - but seeing this really took that group's intervention.

gather evidence.
