By using 'inferiors' you reveal your true character OP.

A subordinate is not inferior. Which is why I often describe those higher up the food chain as a supervisor, director, or executive. I'm not inferior, and neither are the people a rung or two below me on the ladder. And as I to help pull them up the ladder, I would hope that they put a shoulder into my ass to help me up a rung too.

Well that came out of left field. We were all guessing where you were going with this. Still valid and worthwhile but just a little different than the initiating post led us to believe.

Yes but I would say juniors not inferiors

Underlings, protégées- those terms work as well.

OP could mean not people in their org chart that are directly below but maybe an account or strategy person that is dense and makes life hell. AKA you are dumb and can't do your job and that makes our jobs harder, and for that reason you are inferior. But maybe OP is trying to help that person suck less. Who knows. But the big homie at WK def spit game...of thrones.

Literal definition of “inferiors”: a person lower than another in rank, status, or ability. Use case is “rank” here. Get off OP’s ass for word choice. (S)he made a good point about one’s true character being based on how you treat others. Don’t make this a PC pissing contest

Part of the problem is the attitude of bosses who say "I'm not just your boss, I'm your buddy." I have been "friends" with my bosses before insofar as we had a warm and productive working relationship. But overfamiliarity only serves to make the boss feel better about giving orders, as if they are less imposing that way. I'm talking about asking people to do things and making it sound optional when it isn't ("If you guys are interested, you could..." instead of "we need this..."). If you want to give an order give an order, that's what you do as a boss. But if you try and get too chummy right off the bat for the sole purpose of pressuring people into doing extra work for you without you feeling bad, I can guarantee you that the veneer of friendliness is razor-thin for your subordinate, because they must accept your overtures of friendship, they have no choice. And when friendship is not given by choice it devalues what it really means to have a friend in your office.

Looking to resign in about a month. Really need a mental break from the corporate world. I’ve amassed about 2-3 years worth of salary in my investments to hold me through for however long. How bad is it if I took 6-18 months off to pursue hobbies and possible other career paths (content creation/vlogging) while being unemployed before applying to another job in industry? TLDR; I’m about to quit, how bad does a 6-18 month employment gap look when looking to apply again to the workforce?
