Your graduate advisor having absolute power over when and if you graduate. A lot of them are arbitrary and unpredictable, have awful management skills, huge egos, and no oversight. I am not exaggerating when I say there was a culture of fear - out of probably 30-40 grad students in my department (most of whom I knew fairly well by the time I left) and about 20 others scattered in other departments that I knew, I can say that at least half to 3/4 were subject to textbook workplace bullying on a continuing basis.
