A total lack of accountability plus high managerial turnover makes a thriving climate for bullies.

Pros

The CEO had begun weeding out those ineffective in their position. (But, the process is too slow for the employee suffering underneath.)

Cons

New management listening to hearsay instead of investigation...look at your cameras, listen to recordings, most things can be seen in computer files. (Even hardcopy information is available when a person is brought into question.) Peer-to-peer reviews are tainted.

Advice to Management

Learn what a bully does & how much they cost CNMC as a whole. A lot of excellence is lost because the bullied leave rather than go through the stress. (CNMC "talks the talk" but won't "walk".) There's also discriminatory issues behind the bullying behavior. These bullies go to great lengths to cover themselves. (example: A secretary receives mail & instead of sorting through it, making certain it goes to the proper authorities, she/he delegates the sorting to someone else. This person happens to be a bully...bullies are great @ masquerading bad behavior...who benefits in throwing away letters of commendation for others in her/his same position.) Bullies like to appear as if they go the extra mile while their coworkers take up the slack & burden. Bullies socialize; it's easier to recruit others into bullying the employee who is too busy doing their job. Managers must realize that having a third party involved may mean that the bullied won't talk because the third party is a bully, also. Bullies are subtle; it's not always like grade school.
