This is what I realized as soon as I woke up. Business to business businesses, that don’t deal directly with customers, are often very arrogant in how they treat their employees. They don’t fear bad press, so they kind of think they’re invincible.
In other jobs, there are still people who undermine me and try to make me look bad. But the difference is that upper management actually investigates and doesn’t shoot first and ask questions later. They watch tape, that sort of thing. And then they see I’m doing a fine job. As I always was, especially in tech, but never got the credit.
