Toxic Upper Leadership Walk Doesn't Match Talk
Intern (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 26, 2016
The Administrative offices are like a sorority where people are in and out of favor quickly. During my brief time, I observed one of the female senior operations leaders saying one thing to a person's face, but then trashing them to a different group of people (this became worse after she didn't get the promotion she expected- everyone was thankful and relieved when this happened. Many people fear this person will intentionally sabotage the person who got the job). This makes things tough for the rest of management to do a good job because they are having to worry about politics. This necessity to pay homage for promotions or upper level jobs has yielded many director level and above positions where the person in them really can't do their job at all, but they pay the right homage to the right person.
They talk about trusting relationships, but this is just talk, especially if you look at the two faced behavior and the way people are talked about behind their backs. When you have people in charge that are more concerned with maintaining their own kingdom instead of getting the best people to do the best job, things aren't going to get done the way they need to.
If Trusting Relationships is really a value, politics should never be in the equation.
