Culture of Mean Girls

Wondering if anyone has experienced a “Mean Girls” culture within your organizations. It’s rampant at Salesforce, unfortunately. If you’re not in with the cool kids, you’re essentially ostracized.

Why are women so awful to each other in the workplace?

    You will get fired from an engineering role in favor of some “hipster” who knows much less, but who trims his eye brows and bi-weekly hair cuts. It’s all the fault of women, and men’s illogical spell that they are under. Being a top engineer is a terrible and ugly curse. At a smaller company you can get away with being a great engineer - once a company (Google) stagnates and the high school football team onboards, the best appeal you have is to own a gun.

    That’s normal - now that there are many woman - the real catfight begins - preciously it was about diversity and hence woman were brought up - hired even if they didn’t clear multiple rounds (this happened in my previous company) - now that there are so many , they have to show their power :)

    Mean girls only? Have u seen how frat boys have evolved at big companies? With their charisma and their entitled attitude, they impress their stakeholders and they crush their direct reports. They call themselves direct but just need an excuse to be mean.

    sometimes i wish i worked somewhere with actual cool people who know what a comb is and how to use it and maybe have half a fuck about their appearance.

    but, i am sorry you have to deal with cattiness and psychological warfare :/

    I've had similar issues. There's a book I read recently that helped. "The schmuck in my office: how to deal effectively with difficult people at work"
