I recently joined a new company in a technical role. My line manager is a very nice person and fully understands the challenges or my position, I am really happy to be working in this team.
However, the office is relatively small and there are lots of ego/personality clashes among heads of something/something managers/team leaders/squad leaders/group leades/directors/assistant directors/associate directors/director directors/etc.
My line manager got demoted shortly after his start: now things seem OK, but the "opposite team" might want to finish the job. Recently I was told that, after reviewing everybody's requests, our team was not given money for conferences, training days or workshops.
Moreover, several people got moved out of our team and are now working on something else. At the first meeting we were 8, now we are 4 with one leaving soon.
I am trying to stay away from politics and stress, but if my LM leaves my work environment might change drastically. Does anybody here have any experience of such a situation?
