I work for Bank One, one of the largest banks in the nation. You would think that a corporation of this size would recognize the consequences of supporting such unethical behavior.
I do feel more comfortable with the manager I now report to. However,with my condition, I don't see much of her. In terms of the promotion my former manager received, it actually translates into more power over me. This person now has even more control over the decision surrounding my career.
I think the reason I still suffer such attacks at work is not just the result of seeing this manager that affects me. I was humiliated in front of groups of coworkers during the harassment period of 4 months. This often led to laughter and other comments. I still see these people everyday. I confided in several managers in Human Resources as well and they all sided with my former manager. So, there is a great distrust I have for the company itself now.
A change in job would definitely help, but I worked hard getting this job, trained for 6 weeks and put 100% of myself into it everyday. It's extremely unjust to think that I now have to find another job.
The psychologist I've selected was through my insurance company referred by my primary care physician.
In doing some research online I am convinced that this is a serious legal issue in terms of the harassment, what was done about it and what it has led to.
I'll definitely let you know what happens. Please keep the advice coming, it helps greatly. Thank you so much.
