The Ugly Truth is Better than a Beautiful Lie
By now, most of you know how badly I hate Corporate America. Guess what? I still do. I've been working for this particular client for a couple of years now I guess and really enjoyed writing and brainstorming for her. She is an intelligent, albeit naive client. She has built a staff of impressive workers with the exception of one. Enter confrontation.
The exception of one was a point of contention from day one. This person bullied and horned their way through my accomplishments and work, claiming it for their own. Sound familiar? Yep, good ole Office Politics at play, even from the consulting side. I won't give too many particulars, but I had enough. I gave my resignation today and the client accepted it.
I think I wanted so badly to believe that there are decent people on the corporate ladder, that I believed her.
And, I believed her. Yeah, I'd rather have the Ugly Truth than a Beautiful Lie.
