I really don't know how to react to this! As I feel upset as well as have little bit worried about co-worker as well! Don't overthink it, be happy that the work is done. Enjoy the rest of the holidays. Could you please help me how to tackle this co-worker as this is not the first time, he has done this: working over holidays / weekends and take up my ...

Best thing you could do would be to mentor someone in order to bring their skills up a level. You would need to identify someone that was (a) under performing (not just in your view, but your managers view as well) (b) you believe has the ability and interest in doing better (c) you believe you would be able to help, and (d) would be willing to work with ...

It doesn't matter why they ended up working when they weren't supposed to. It isn't any of your business. Their plans could have fallen through, a vacation got cancelled, family changed plans, who knows? It doesn't matter. If its square with their manager it is a done deal. I was supposed to finish month-end activities on 27th December, upon my return, ...

Four possibilities: A simple oversight. That person is depressed or has some other issue. She may not like the quality of your work. Fourth possibility. That person is committing fraud. In auditing, one clue, that someone is committing fraud, is that they're not taking their vacation when they're supposed to, and they're not letting others do their work, ...

Sounds like the company knows what's going wrong with your manager and they're on top of it. You don't need to do anything. I wouldn't say something like "I can do this project in 1 month", because then not only are you making your manager look bad, which isn't going to be good during review time, but also you're now making a promise to have this project ...

I believe that doing the righteous thing is more honorable than doing the traditional. Too many bad people have hidden behind the protection of social rules keeping people quiet. Loyalty is is earned, not a function of a title. If this person does not deserve loyalty, I would not give it. If you feel that the punishment from the truth coming out fits ...

The very fact that you want "to put people on the firing line" shows that you aren't a team player. Also, the fact that you say "I had a good sprint and got every ticket of mine done", but then don't say anything about helping others to finish the sprint also goes to show you aren't a team player. Then there's your statement of "I am not willing to take any ...
