The company I work for positions themselves as this super professional prestigious global operation however almost two-thirds of the staff, existing and new recruits, are made up of the CEO’s family and friends and their family. The few of us non-family folk have to endure constant unfair treatment as a result of this. The one thing that effects me directly is my immediate manager who is bedding the most junior employee. After 2 years of being being borderline fired, which will never happen because her dad is the CEO’s childhood friend, she suddenly got “friendly” with my manager and lo and behold she is now the darling of the company. She can do no wrong! even when she does error then the whole world comes together to save her and put the blame on someone else. this has now resulted in her getting credit for my work, she’s being taken on on-site jobs rather than the people who actually work on the project – flying business class I might add.
I’m sick of this cr*p. I refuse to degrade myself just to keep my job and will never resort to such cheap antics so I can’t tolerate it when other women do it, especially when it’s at my expense! I work bloody hard, put in the long hour, do the needful and loads more, make sure everything is perfect before the project leaves the company but I don’t ever get any credit, not even a thank you or a good job.
