Office Politic?

 

There are some office politics whether we realized, or not. Whether we agree, or not. It’s very subjective and depends on individual perspective. Here, I’m going to list down some of them:

1. Bosses can go out anytime without permission and won’t be asked by their superior but the staff can’t go out at anytime they want and will be asked with tons of questions if caught going out for buying food

2. Bosses can eat outside but if the staff caught eating outside, they will be punished such as get a memo and discipline action.

3. If you are the favorite staff, you will be promoted or will be given extra bonus. You won’t be scolded even if you are wrong and you will get less work compared to others. What you need to do is to help the boss and hide all his/her insincerity.

4. In the meeting, you can’t disagree with the boss idea. If you do, you will be marked as the black sheep. You won’t get promoted and you won’t get any benefit that you are supposed to get. In the future, you might get scold in front of other people which is very embarrassing with vulgar and bad words. Isn’t it too much for an educated (educated eh?) people like boss use such bad language toward his/her stuff?

5. Bosses usually know when to take leave at the right time. They must know how to run from the danger.

6. Bosses usually give the idea even though it doesn’t make sense sometimes (most of the time?) and when it’s time to get the reward, he/she will be a superstar who standing in front of others and taking the award.

7. Bosses don’t deal with the staff but the superior. Because he/she knows that staff can’t say anything but behind his/her back if he/she makes any decision because it has been approved by the big boss.

These are just some points that might be happening in your office or at least, mine.

 

Note: if someday you might sit at that seat, do remember others.

  9. Ya, I think this happens in most offices. Although I gripe a lot about being a housewife now, I am kind of happy I'm no longer dealing with stuff and nonsense like this!

    By the way, how is "A Thousand Splendid Suns"? I just loved "The Kite Runner" and wonder if it's a sort of sequel...

  10. There's something called double standards. Politics and double standards are in all offices. One can't run away from it.

  11. christine - oh. that is good that you don't have to deal with these kind of stuff anymore. the workload won't harm you as much as the politic does. seriously.

    actually i wanted to read kite runner first since that was the first book he wrote, then a thousand splendid sun. but because i got this book (you won't believe that i got 2 copies for the same purpose -- birthday gift) for free, i will just finish this book first :) i guess the scenario would be the same, maybe different case.

  24. leaders should lead by example. Good examples. If not than nobody should expect the subordinates to be as good as or much better than the bosses.
