Would like to get some advices.
I recently joined an MNC and this is not my first job (I have 5 years of working experience already but in SME).
I knew I was lowballed for this position, but I accepted the job anyways as it is an MNC and I’ve always wanted to get into MNC.
After working for a week, I realised how horrible my direct superior is. She is always in a bad mood, always threatening us with “I will kill you if you don’t do this properly blablabla”. I feel she is being very childish and not professional. She is always scolding and being extremely rude to people (her own team and other department people) till the point where another dept’s manager complained about her to our director saying that she is very rude and demanding. Yet she has the nerve to come tell us (her team) that the manager complained about her but she can’t do anything about it as the director already knows her attitude and she’s proud of it lol.
She’s always nitpicking on me even though I’m new, and she expects me to know everything. She’s reluctant to teach and she blames me for every mistake, big or small. The best part is I’m not the one who did it! It was my predecessor! How would I know what that person did? She expects me to solve the issue when I know nothing, and wouldn’t help me nor explain the situation to me.
I’m extremely stressed here, I’ve been losing a lot of hair and have started to binge eat (I used to have bulimia). Im dragging myself to work everyday and I’m telling myself to bear with it and learn as much as I can here. work for at least a year here before I quit and look for another job. The industry that I’m in is too small, there’s not many mnc that I can go into.. I’m also afraid that my reputation will be ruined if I leave so soon.
Any advices on how I can deal with such a self centred and egoistic superior? I can’t tell the HR or the director as everyone knows her temper (she received many complaints already and her team turnover rate is super super high) but somehow they are not doing anything as she is capable. She is also very good at sucking up to the right people lol.
I’m almost at my wits end.. I want to leave so badly but I’m holding it out for a better career..
