I was prepared to like Stevie; she was pretty and seemed smart and classy...Stevie didn’t waste any time telling me I wasn’t the applicant she would have hired. I pretended what Stevie said didn’t get to me, but it did...when I had a question for where to find something on the server, Stevie told me I’ll learn it best if I “explore.” She does, however, act as my personal fashion police with daily insults concerning my makeup or what I’m wearing...

Two months ago, our board hired an operations manager...the other partners and I have been pleased with the OM. She’s experienced in operational areas and is charming, dynamic and charismatic...as expected, we had several resignations in the first month...last week, a senior manager turned in his resignation...he described the OM as ruthless and demeaning and warned us to expect more resignations. Where do we go from here?

I’m worried about confessing my pregnancy before I’m hired. Assuming I’m hired, when is it safe to spring the news on my boss that I’m pregnant?

I work in human resources and am supposed to fix problems -- unfortunately, one of them is our company’s general manager. He’s a bully and doesn’t know it and wouldn’t believe it if I told him...
