I've had to deal with that sort of thing before, except it was the other way around (the son owned the business and kept giving his father all of the best clients).

A couple who works at my office is going through a divorce right now (we saw it coming, trust me). So far it has been fine, except the other day things got very rough between them and now they...

Set a goal and use JC to help you transition to a new job. Start with your resume and experience. If you had your choice which job would you choose? Which employer appeals to you?

Conflict Resolution;

Find issues that you two can agree and then have them explain the sequence of events that brought about this.
Then simply go from there to try and resolve this conflict.

Regretting my decision to work and live in the same building

Feeling the Burn(out)

I work in a very fast paced, challenging work environment. The hours are long and I'm beginning to feel burnt out. I've mentioned it to a few of my coworkers and they feel the same. I don't...

If everyone feels the same it's probably a systematic problem. Be careful of acting approaching it like a union, but maybe a few of you could get together and speak with your supervisor.

Asking for a raise.....for a coworker

I don't know why but one of my coworkers says they need to make more money but is afraid to ask for personal reasons, so they asked me to ask our boss for them. I don't feel comfortable...

Robin Lampert

I agree with the other posters. This is not appropriate, probably not very effective, and in some situations could actually reduce the chance that he'd get the raise. (As in all situations,...

Ever run into a massive ego at work that you can't breathe in the same room? Advice on dealing with such creatures?

Edmond, if listening to music is accepted there then why not bring headphones and play your own music? That way you don't have to confront anyone.

Virginia, how about the person playing the music wear the headphones? Vulgarity is an acquired taste.
