Heard that there are many jerks/b|tches in the management level in the banking industry. They rose there partially because of their own capability but also their ability to manipulate office politics. In a male dominated environment, testosterone levels tend to be high and the juniors or operations people get stepped upon. Anyone had this experience before?

No. My boss is awesome.

If they don't know how to manipulate, they wouldn't be where they are today. Successfully navigation different types of personalities comes with growing up. If you're smart enough, you also will be able to work around your ass of a boss.

My boss is awesome, but he's also a shark. You sort of have to be if you want to make 7 figures...

My boss is totally awesome. Best boss I've ever had, and I was worried about bosses in banking.

Nicest person in the world. However, DO NOT fuck with them. When you're new, it's hard, deal with it, and realize the bosses worth emulating are too busy to fuck with you.

Get busy living

My boss even recycles.

"Can't someone else do it?"
No.

My boss could beat up your boss

Nobody's my boss! I'm my own boss! I created myself!

There are 3 things you can do when your boss is being a douche:

A) You react back and let the dominoes fall into place. Not a good thing, if you want to pursue this option you might get fired, so if you want to do this go with both guns blazing atleast.
B) You can bitch about your boss to his boss but at the end of the day you just look like a nagging bitch.
C) You act indifferent and not give a fuck. They might act more dickish because you are not reacting. But its a very Alpha thing to do and his monkey brain will get it eventually get it that you simply don't care about drama.

A lot of people like to get a rise out of people. Don't let them pull your emotional strings.

Last week, my boss sent me an email where he wrote something far less what this guy got. I walked straight to his office, told him point blank that i will not tolerate anything like that again. Its how you deliver your message. By becoming physical you're basically playing their game. They want you to take a swing at them and end your career.
