Do you have someone in your office that everyone hates?
We have a guy. He's full of himself, thinks he knows everything and is just plain ignorant.

Everyone shits on him to his face, and he's just so full of himself and ignorant that it just goes over his head and doesn't affect him. Anyone else have someone in the office that is hated by pretty much everyone?

Edit: And he's a HUGE pussy. The other day, he was at the gym across the street from our office, hurt himself working out, and had to have our owner bring him to the hospital... It was a pulled muscle.

Owner's wife. She micromanages, is demanding, and wants things done her way, which would be ok if she knew what she was doing.

No, that's the thing, when he actually gets what we are saying, he gets upset.

The other day he threatened to quit the office Fantasy Football league because we denied a ridiculous trade he was trying to make. He's just a huge pussy.

I worked in an office with a major a-hole who was the most skilled employee there. But I absolutely believe that no matter how good someone is at their technical job, if they don’t play well with others, they should be let go. The stellar production of one employee is not worth killing the morale of an entire office. But most bosses don’t have the courage to make that move.

You're THAT guy?? You should never deny a FF trade unless there is obvious collusion. Stupid people make stupid trades. It isn't your job to stop them.

If your office doesn’t have that person, it’s probably you

Everyone hates my boss. It’s not hard to figure out who he is.

My boss is a real life Michael Scott. I don't hate him.. I just find him difficult to deal with. He at least means well.

We do have a lady that everyone hates, though. She lost a little bit of weight and now wears short arse dresses where you can almost see her cooch. She is constantly talking shite about everyone but is oblivious that the entire office hates her.

re: Do you have someone in your office that everyone hates?
My previous Manager. She is OCD to the extreme and insane. She’d call me at 11:30 at night on the weekend because the wrong shade of light green was used in a report that is for her own use. If I didn’t answer she’d email HR and cc almost our whole team. I was at the doctors office for an hour once and she called me FOURTEEN times in the span of 45 mins to ask a simple Excel question she could’ve Googled. If we stepped away for 5 mins to go take a shite she wanted to know where we were going. It was the worst employment experience I’ve ever had.

She got fired and I took over her role. If she was still here I would’ve quit a year ago. When our VP called to tell me she was canned we all went out for drinks to celebrate.

yes.

the front desk girl sucks.

she's just not our people. nobody likes her and she's barely competent at her job. she doesn't say hello or good morning when you walk in and stomps every where she goes. we are all pretty much ready for her to go. my boss doesn't even like her. she's only been here like 4 months.

pro tip: don't live and work in the south and then make fun of southerners for being stupid....esp. when you live in a trailer park.

What I've often discovered is that it's not always cut-and-dry on whether or not said employee is actually that productive or if they're just productive at freeloading off of vulnerable coworkers. Besides, like you said, is ONE productive employee really THAT valuable when their attitude towards teamwork and those on their team is to, "trample the weak, hurdle the dead"?

Regarding that type of toxic employee, what I've also seen many many times is what you mentioned about bosses and courage: The boss, through his cowardice in eliminating the oftentimes "not so productive as percieved, but definitely toxic" employee, winds up alienating the real productive TEAM of people.

And then he can't figure out why his turnover is so high until years down the road when the problem employee leaves or is fired in a chitstorm of circumstances- at that point the employee's boss had long-since come to the realization but it STILL took the brown stuff hitting the fan for him/her to do something.

It happens all the time, and it's poor human resources management 101.
