“Crocodiles are easy. They try to kill and eat you. People are harder. Sometimes they pretend to be your friend first.”

― Steve Irwin


The modern work environment can be comfortable, energizing and productive. It can also be frustrating, oppressive and debilitating. In a tough economic environment we are often asked to do more with less. We are expected to take on additional work (and feel grateful for it) when others are laid off. Income has stagnated and we see fewer opportunities for promotion. Yet we are still ambitious, so the workplace becomes a competitive environment with some taking credit for the work of others and everyone trying to avoid the taint of a failed project or assignment.

Give these harsh realities, this site is dedicated to helping employees deal productively with common frustrations including:

  • bad bosses
  • backstabbing co-workers
  • failed projects
  • missed promotions
  • sudden job losses
