Bad Bosses

If only bad bosses were so transparent. There is a reason they survive in the corporate environment. Bad bosses reflect the values of the corporation.  They know how to thrive in the barracuda tank. Before taking on a bad boss, consider the risks of failure and reevaluate your future with your current employer.  Do not depend on support from your office mates. Working for a bad boss is very stressful, but there is security in a paycheck every payday. Also, any action you take could be seen as confrontational, no matter how professionally done.  You may acquire a label which may later affect your upwards mobility.  A plan of action must focus on what you can do within your sphere of influence. Try getting promoted into another position. In most companies, supervisors cannot nix a promotion. Increase your corporate visibility. Find opportunities to work on interdepartment teams. Join committees doing charity outreach. Do activities where your name will become familiar to your boss's boss. Realize that your Bad Boss may still consider these actions as a threat to power.  It is always prudent to have an updated resume and a knowledge of current openings in your field.
