I’ve heard horror stories. My friend worked there and she said she didn’t have a social life for her entire tenure there. She never grocery shopped because she ate every meal at the office. (NYC).

Need advice. We have a member on our team that doesn’t follow process, ignores asks, and undermines those above. They kinda go off and do their own thing, implement their own way of doing things. They are deeply embedded in the culture and are well liked by leadership. The dept head continues to praise them on calls, even when they ignore asks, push back, do not follow process. Do I say something? Do I let live? I’m new to the team and find this dynamic really uncomfortable.
