Consulting

Leaving a job due to what I perceive is bullying. Is providing honest feedback during exit interview burning bridges? Perceived bullying is by a specific manager who just got promoted to CISO.

Absolutely report it. How will we instigate change without reporting these occurrences? Even if it burns bridges (which it won’t), I’ve learned through my career that some bridges are worth burning

I was leaving a job for an MBA but there was extensive bullying going on in my dept. I spent 9 months documenting it. I contacted HR in my exit interview and sent over the doc. No one knew I did it and an HR investigation began, with the director being fired a month later. You should report it, and it’s great if you have evidence to hand in, too. Lots of these situations go unreported. What bridges do you want to keep? I reported it because I saw people leave and no one said anything. They were too burned out to do it while those left behind kept living in a nightmare. Those who couldn’t leave were tied to the job due to visas and the manager knew that and basically used it as a threat. Please mention it, you never know what’s going on in people’s lives and who you could help. You don’t know what’s already in that CISO’s HR file, too, and you have nothing to lose.

Have you reported to HR? Are you a protected class?

Here in the US, HR generally doesn’t really take complaints seriously unless it’s an EEO violation that can cause a lawsuit. Other than that, it’s “internally handled”.

I have another job lined up. Suing is an option I’m not willing to pursue. I’m in Australia.

Does your company have any training on diverse sensitivity unconscious biases or anti bullying, the guy must undergo them. Assuming he’s not black.

What actually happened? Bullying is very loosely defined. There are many people these days that cannot take a tough message or a feedback.

Sorry OP. After 6 years in consulting, I also had a manager that also did ~5 of those things (I started keeping my own list). It was the first time in my life I had anxiety attacks and worked through PTSD in my new job. It’s good you have a sense of right and wrong, because that’s what’s going to keep you being successful in the long run! Keep up the strength.
