For the past few years, I have been working in this capacity for a large, multi-national company.

Evil HR Lady

And while I’m all warm and snuggly in my home ( yay for working from home !) and my town is at a balmy 40, I opened my email this morning to find this email: My son was fired for not coming into work on a weather advisory where the weather was -20 the town was advised not to be outside.

my coworkers keep praising my work bully, emergency bathroom use during interviews, and more

Ask A Manager

How reasonable is it to ask my teammates to stop praising another employee from a different department who was a bully? I am okay with speaking about this person in a working manner (“Petra suggested this on the budget issue, so let’s go with it.”),

I can’t say no to clients, and my success is destroying me

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I’ve been an independent contractor for nine years, and I’ve finally found financial comfort and fulfillment in my work. I took sleazy corporate work for investment bankers and lawyers because that’s “where the market was,” and I had to sell myself short to be competitive. I work on projects that excite me and make me feel like I am making a difference in the world. Except it’s not working.

don’t drunkenly email your boss this St. Patrick’s Day

Ask A Manager

She was working from home that day and I tried to call her but she didn’t answer. You get tired, but you pull another beer from your purse. In preparation for St. Patrick’s day … a reader writes: Back in 2010, I sent the most horrifying email to my boss (by accident!) and I thought you might get a kick out of it.

Ask A Manager

I’ve been working at this chocolate shop for about six months now. He’s says it’s hard work and her feels bad for me, but “Oh well, that’s the life of the designer.” ” He wants me to come up with everything from scratch because he doesn’t know what he wants, then basically has me start all over once it’s almost finished because he doesn’t like it.

my new job doesn’t give raises — ever

Ask A Manager

I’m happy in my position but have no growth opportunities aside from lateral transfers, which don’t interest me because I like my work and love my team. But I already enjoy ample PTO and a generous work-from-home policy. Is there anything else I can do in this situation aside from get a side gig, move to the suburbs to save money, or look for another job? A reader writes: I recently accepted my dream job.

our laid-off coworker still shows up every day, employer wants a short story that will make them cry, and more

Ask A Manager

The next day, the team member showed up at work. They’re not working — duties have been reassigned— but seem to be just slowly packing up their stuff and using the kitchen. The boss works in the same office area so he knows this is happening. It’s five answers to five questions.

my coworkers won’t cut expenses, pop culture references in interviews, and more

Ask A Manager

A few months ago we received an email from the Big Boss (head of our business unit) that we are entering a “cost cutting” exercise due to business needs and they need everyone to make efforts to ensure our costs/expenses are “as close to zero as possible.” You should not be walking five miles with heavy equipment or not getting paid for time you worked, and conspicuously not having a slice of pizza isn’t going to make any practical difference.

someone is stinking up the bathroom by my office, I’m forced to use a nickname, and more

Ask A Manager

Our offices are in a renovated home and my office is the former master bedroom which is on a wing of the house that is slightly separate from the rest of the building. In the past few months, a woman who works on another floor of the house in another department has started coming to the master bathroom at least once (and often twice) a day to do her business.

updates: my coworker wants me available 24/7, my boss had his wife do our work, and more

Ask A Manager

Here are five updates from people who had their letters answered here in the past. I work from home and my coworker wants me available 24/7. I also think that a lot of the commenters picked up on the fact that I was trying to “prove” I was working just as effectively from home and not doing anything helpful with my minutae-based away messages. I don’t want to use my personal cell phone for work (#4 at the link).

my coworker plans to work a second job during our work hours, without telling our boss

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I work at a mid-sized SaaS company as a data analyst. He has admitted to me that he’s bored with the position, and I expressed surprise that he was wanting to stay at our company because of the nature of the work. But here’s the catch — he wants to continue working at our company while also working somewhere else. He says he plans to remote in from our company’s equipment to do the other job while he’s at our office.

my boss asked if I felt “threatened” by a new hire when I complained about her

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: We recently hired a new employee in my office, who is really not working out well. She was hired in at the same job title as me about two months ago to work on the project team for which I am the lead. Unfortunately, this new hire, “Jane,” is atrocious—at least from my perspective. This is her first job out of graduate school and I think she hasn’t adjusted yet to working life. Is two months long enough to know that someone isn’t working out?

how can I get my staff to figure things out on their own, asking about internal candidates, and more

Ask A Manager

I’ve been a manager for a few years now, and I’ve been working hard to build my bench. Name it explicitly as something you want them doing, and something they need to work on. I work in a field where mostly people are promoted from within.

I can’t get my own hotel room even if I pay for it, I cried in a meeting, and more

Ask A Manager

At home I follow a strict diet that keeps my symptoms in check, but eating out at restaurants for every meal during work trips really does a number on my stomach. What else can I say at work to make them drop the roommate business? “I I cried at work and worry I missed something important when it happened. I screwed up at work. I am from a large multinational company but was just recently rejected from a small start-up company and received the email below.

2019 70

I can’t keep helping friends with their writing, office butter bonanza, and more

Ask A Manager

Anything like this works, depending on the tone you want with the particular asker: * “My schedule is so swamped these days that I wouldn’t be able to do it justice.” But if you’d do a few of these requests for the right price, you can say: “I’ve gotten so many of these requests from family and friends, and my schedule is so busy now, that I’ve actually started charging a fee for it. It seems so invasive and so illogical that I have to ask, where is this coming from?

at what point in a very long cold should I stay home?

Ask A Manager

My work gives one sick day every six months with no carryover past the year. No one else is trained with what I do, so any work not done on a sick day I will need to fit in the rest of the week. Still I can tell my coworkers are irritated by my presence at work and that I should use up my sick leave if I have it, even if it is more symbolic that I am trying to keep the cold from spreading then actually useful. But this is the reality of colds and work, unfortunately.

2019 68

I can’t trust the snacks from my coworker, large employee won’t use heavy duty chair, and more

Ask A Manager

I can’t trust the snacks from my sort-of-vegan coworker. She’s fantastic and I have a very good working relationship with her. Of course, that won’t work as well if she sees that you’re eating treats other people bring in. While I enjoyed the paycheck, my employer had some serious boundary issues, and I struggled to maintain work/life balance. My previous employer and I have kept in touch, and I now have an offer in front of me to work for the company remotely.

2019 70

my coworker is a blood drive bully, non-monetary perks, and more

Ask A Manager

I love the work, and I like my coworkers. She’s involved in all kinds of charities and volunteer work, all for causes I support. I fully support the Red Cross and their work. The FDA still has a ban on donations from any man who’s had sex with another guy in the past year. I’m out to most people in my life, and not keeping it a secret from anyone else. Boss has been a really strong advocate for me and my work since I moved to this position in 2011.

2019 71

my staff is selling multi-level marketing products at work, my coworker makes R-rated noises, and more

Ask A Manager

Staff selling multi-level marketing products at work. Walking into work feels like walking past mall kiosks: each one of my staff is side-hustling with some kind of pyramid scheme/multi-level marketing product: oils, diet pills, jewelry and make up, leggings, kitchen gadgets, diet powders, and weight loss snake oil. One of my staff told me it doesn’t apply to us because we don’t work in the HQ office. My desk mate makes sex noises while she works.

2019 66

I pretended I’m allergic to bees, is it ethical to buy a resume and cover letter, and more

Ask A Manager

Well, the nurse (I work at a school) overheard and now they’re asking for an allergy plan and Epi-pen. I’d be very skeptical of one charging only $300, considering the amount of work that needs to go into drawing resume-worthy accomplishments out of you, to say nothing of the work in then writing them up. I often catch mistakes from him that I know we went over in the meetin g. When working from home, what expenses should my company reimburse?

should I take a job working for my dad?

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: After almost a decade of working in one industry, I am totally burnt out and desperately longing for a career change. I’ve been offered a great opportunity to work for my father, who owns a small business in a completely unrelated field. However, I know there are a lot of potential problems that come with working for a) such a small company (five employees total) and b) family members. Work disagreements are going to be personal.

2019 49

I’m afraid a coworker will find my emails trash-talking her

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: A coworker was let go as part of a large layoff at the Fortune 500 company where I work. I went back and read some of my email exchanges with this employee over the past year or two, and there is a pattern of us complaining about his manager (who I also work with but don’t directly report to). Yes, I know I should NOT have been using my work email to write this kind of thing, but what, if anything, should I do now?

2019 55

should I stay in my well-paid job even though I have nothing to do?

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I work at a government agency, which means I have a new agency head/boss every four years. I’d known Jane from before, and she swore not much would change Except… Jane took about 90% of my job. The last part makes sense because she is the one who does the work. I used to oversee major public-facing projects, but now I mostly do admin work.

2019 57

my employees finish my sentences, my interviewer left me alone while she ran errands, and more

Ask A Manager

For the most part, my team is great — they’re dependable, intelligent, and they genuinely care about the work we’re doing. I think this stems from them wanting to seem engaged in the conversation, and also to show they’re comprehension of the topic. I don’t want them to feel like our interactions are one-way only, so I’ve tried nicely saying “hold on, let me finish,” but that hasn’t worked. that comes from that.).

anonymous note said to pick up my feet when I walk, a coworker with greasy hair, and more

Ask A Manager

I know I need to let this go but I am having trouble working with people who might have been the note writer. How do I move on from this? I can understand why it’s awful to now have to suspect everyone you work with of writing this note (one of many reasons why anonymous notes are cruel), but the best thing to do is to tell yourself that this is only evidence that you work with one ass; everyone else can still be perfectly lovely. It’s five answers to five questions.

2019 54

my boss keeps suggesting I move, does “let me check” make me look incompetent, and more

Ask A Manager

The job posting I applied for was based in city A but I asked during the interview process if I would be able to remain in my current location (city B, about a three-hour train ride from city A). ” I should also mention that my team is equally split in various locations across the country and there is even another person on my team that is completely remote (working from home, not even in a satellite office). It’s five answers to five questions. Here we go….

2019 60

my manager wants to be cc’d on all my emails, using sick days after years of perfect attendance, and more

Ask A Manager

I forgot to cc her on an urgent request that we got yesterday that I started working on immediately, before she arrived. If I receive a request at 7 am, I cannot wait until 10 or 11 to get her okay before working on it. The same is true for oversight in general, aside from emails. Doing the work of managing takes away the need to micromanage; that’s the whole point. Work plays by different rules in this regard. Who am I to expect references from people?
