Did you see this in your self esteem?

I've seen it after a time of trying to mak due on my own, and having no problem, except that employers were siding with veteran workers, not the rookies, and even throwing pieces or lumps of work on the new people, that the older veterans weren't going to do, so they could just ....'talk''.
This was happening at a job recently, and the rule is never to give your own work to anyone. She was reported for this, and still the boss did nothing, he said just don't say anything, you're better off.... WAT!! he WAS the BOSS!!! and he did nothing. So I just put the work back, on her.

  • You are responsible for yourself and your job performance. Regardless of what others do you should work hard and be a team player. If you do not like the climate that you work in, get a new job.

  • Im not actually sure what your talking about, but it sounds like a moral issue rather than a self esteem issue. If your working with someone who has less work ethics than you expect or set for yourself... 1st its not really your place to keep everyone on the straight and narrow path of ethics or morals. Tend to your job, do the best you can do. If its effecting your job then bring it up at a meeting - (not pointing fingers but suggestively as a way to better meet productivity - be diplomatic) Transfer! or change jobs. But your going to find that in just about all types of jobs/businesses. Some are there only to earn money not work. Thats one of the many reasons that work from home jobs are few and far between(even though I know thats not what your talking about here). The ideal work environment is the one you create for yourself not for others. When you do that others will follow.
