This is the original problem from an employee...
I have been working at my company for just over 2 years. We support individuals with developmental disabilities. 6 months ago I was promoted to an Assistant manager position for our home. for approximately 5 months prior to myself becoming the Assistant Manager we had no manager. and for 4 1/2 months after I became assistant manager we had no manager. Since they recently hired the new manager... I have been reprimanded more than 6 times for several things. At first, I thought that it was no big deal and that they wanted me to improve. Lately, I feel like they are picking on me. When I went to the Director of the company she wanted me to confront the people "I had issues with". She seemed behind me.

When I confronted whom I genuinely believe to be a bully... it was horrible. I left feeling so downtrodden and disheartened. I felt like I was worthless and as though nothing I did was ever going to be good enough. Co-workers of mine see how much this is effecting me and agree that management has gotten out of hand. In fact, everyone I talk to feels as though they are micro-managers. I feel they are just bullies. All 4 of them. Every time I come into contact with them I am fearful of my job. And lately, I have no choice but to come into contact with them more and more due to the fact that they are always calling me in to yell at me. I don't know what to do. The position pays well and will continue to pay well if I can stand to stay there. Also, if I don't have to play office politics I love my job. I love the clients and have several close friends whom I work with. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention... I've been yelled at for having friends that I work with! They have said that we are "clique-ish" and that it's not acceptable. And yet, they team up to bully people! It's crazy! There are so many days when I leave work feeling so awful about myself and SO frustrated. I hate it. Any advice? I've already spoken to the director of the company... and although she was behind me before... I feel as though she was just putting on a face and is very apathetic to my feelings.

That's a horrible situation to be in and it is not ok for managers to behave like that. You need to return to the company director who is ultimately in charge of these so called managers and let her know you are being "bullied" and it is very serious. There are plenty of court cases out there regarding this issue. You can also mention this slightly to get her to put some action into this issue. This workplace behaviour is going to continue and become acceptable if nobody does anything about it. You should raise a grievance with the Company Director
