Sex and relationship life is good. This post is not about that.
This post is specifically about corporate politics, especially with women. This post is for those in large corporations.
I'm a middle manager. I made it through hard work and good politics, but I've been stalling for a few months.
I report to not 1, not 2, but 3 superiors who are women, the only one who's above them is the company CEO. My immediate manager, my second line, and my third line are all women.
And as a you might expect, it's a fucking nightmare.
Immediate manager (a director) is the ultimate boneheaded process Karen - doesn't understand a technical thing, interrupts everyone and everybody in every meeting. I haven't met anybody who likes her - I have stellar relationships with a lot of VPs in the company and every single one of them warned me of her. One minute she's shouting, the other minute she's dovey. One week I'm her favourite person ever, the next week she sends me 10 flaming emails every day. It's a fucking nightmare.
Second line, a senior VP, let's call her Hillary, is new to the role, location wise she is in the same city as Karen and so they go on trips together to horse races and what not. Karen has her on speed dial and I can't get through to Hillary at all.
Third line, a board member - doesn't care for anything our organisation does, and only cares for herself. She's an attack dog who manages by constantly attacking the other board members.
All of these pretty much got their roles because of affirmative action crap - they'd never cut it out on skills alone, and they pretty much add no value whatsover. They are untouchable because women, right?
It drives me nuts. I don't know how to deal with them all. I have started applying for other jobs and looking around for new opportunities.
Any tips on how to deal with situations like these are welcome.
