Toxic work environment, and HR appears to be ineffective or uninterested
Because of my upbringing, i have always been a believer in actions and destiny. So i totally hold myself responsible for running into Managers who owe their jobs more to ‘Relationship Management’ than any technical skill in hand.
These managers unfortunately don’t see any personal benefit in being professional with people like me; visa dependent (managers know they can abuse), partially technical (it’s not too tough for people like me to land something but it’s not very easy), not caucasian (i don’t get the preferred skin color treatment), and finally a male (they don’t get to benefit from diversity clause with me, or from various programs running to help the other gender).
So, non-citizen/GC, non-100% technical, non-white, and non-female. Seems i am fair game for the managers to treat me the way they like. Reported to the HR, but they would be interested if there is a clear policy violation (like corruption etc). and then they would have ammunition to act.
For other things like abuse at work, nepotism, bias in salary - the HR simply seemed to just wash their hands off.
So don’t ever think of HR as someone who will actually go the extra mile (or even the regular mile) to dig into a reported matter, and make working conditons better for employees. The HR is largely there to give an impression of promoting good work culture practices. “An impression.” That’s it.
So, my friends, in life everything is fair. Someone screws you over (your managers, your HR), it is fair. On the same note, you screwing over others is fair too. The way you did something to deserve the crap, the same way the people you are screwing over did something too.
So, everything is fair in the world. You take, to your best, the shit that comes your way. And you shouldn’t hesitate in giving shit to others and making their lives miserable.
If it can’t be explained, it must be destiny. Yay, top fortune company.
