    At work, I often run into the situation where someone takes credit for ideas that I came up with. They're ok with the day to day stuff, but they really struggle with the long range strategic stuff. Currently, there's an open management position for our group that were both going for. It's a real Cold War.

    Additionally, I find myself being criticized by a couple of people that were friends with our old boss .. I've known that his strategy is to lean on that group in particular and have them talk him up to management, and evidently talk me down...

    Thoughts?

    If you're like your posts, better be comfy with your current position.

    i've been dealing with this for over 15yrs over two jobs. with my previous job, i had technical writings stolen word for word.

    at my current job, i write procedures on a weekly basis only to have them "stolen". i am not asking for attaboys or even credit but don't put your goddamn name on my work. he's puerto rican, that must explain it.

    I've essentially pulled back any help that I used to offer. Since then, the trust he's fained with the boss man has fallen sharply. Even threw in some concepts that were completely off the wall/counterproductive and they get carried through.

    Hey, let's serve a huge Irish meal for at party's day. I'll speak with cateringn... "No, no, I'll speak with them, you take care of the guest list". Ok, we'll be sure to add venison tacos to the menu... "Yeah"

    Next thing you know there's a taco dish on an otherwise totally Irish me u

    I think you need some proof - is there a public place to store your stuff so you can refer to it later as evidence?

    Well that would have been a nice little bow to put on your otherwise unhelpful anecdote.

    Sometimes its better to be part of a winning team than to win an award

    I came up with a saying:
    Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships

    if i would have done that, i would have like 4 fewer posts. that and the OP would have fewer posts in his/her thread.
