I had a conversation with a colleague over IPMessenger in the office. A few days later the manager made remarks that clearly sounded like what I had said in that conversation. Specifically, I had made a remark that although the company is an MNC but was being run like a Baniye ki dukaan aka a 7-11. In the meeting, the manager asked if everyone was happy with the way things are since he feels some employees are disgruntled and feel like the office is being run like a baniye ki dukaan aka 7-11, De Ja Vu...He uses the security cameras to listen in to employee conversation and all. One day I was heading home around 08:30 PM(late). He saw me leaving on the camera and accosted me on the way out, started using expletives and abused me verbally for trying to leave while managers were still in the office. Specifically, he showed me his wristwatch before showering me with abuses...How do I deal with such a manager?
EDIT: I can't loose this job for the following reasons:
Don't want to leave home town (Indore, India). Moving to another city would entail cost of living eating into any hike I get over the current salary.
Mother is undergoing treatment for cancer so cannot leave city anyways.
No other company in the city can match the salary, this company is an offshore captive development center for a US Fortune 200 Company. Biggest name in the Environmental Services (Garbage Collection, Landfills, Power Plants et al)
On my way up the ladder to become a Manager. Finally why should I after 8 years
