MAN’S CO-WORKER WITH MORE EXPERIENCE BUT LOWER RANK, ACTS LIKE HE IS THE BOSS

Arrogant co-worker who constantly undermines my work. Till what point is this behavior acceptable?

How do you deal with co-workers who constantly undermine or are arrogant towards you?

Without going too into details, I’ve been working in this company for almost 2 years now. This teammate who is at a lower job level, but has had four years of experience has taken it upon himself to undermine every single thing I do/say.

“Make sure you do it properly and run it by me” is the phrase often used by this guy, who I don’t even report to, nor is my mentor.

Am I supposed to keep tolerating this behavior cuz I’ve been itching to vent out to my manager about this whole situation?

Netizens’ comments

  • If you are not under him, why do you have to run things through him? Has the department specifically mentioned that you are under his jurisdiction? Or any content has to pass through his moderation/verification? Otherwise, just ignore. No need to entertain. Escalate if necessary. No one likes a condescending co-worker.
    • (OP) Absolute zero jurisdiction. I’m supposed to only report to my mentor or manager. Hell, this dude belongs to a different vertical within the same team as well. But idk why he’s got a stick so far up his ass. Either way with performance reviews coming up, I’m genuinely considering letting my manager know.
  • “Sure, will do that if you would send me an email for it”
  • His insecurity is screaming, people who constantly check on others and how they’re doing their work has nothing else prioritised in life, for reals.
