Current Employee - Administrative says"At SNC c co-workers fear they might lose their jobs if they go against an office bully, especially if the person doing the bullying is a long standing employee. The hard thing about SNC bullying is that it often involves gaslighting, so you may tell yourself that it's all in your head. However, workplace bullying is so prevalent at SNC they just except it as part of the day amongst administration staff. I have witnessed HR whispering with long standing staff members gossiping about an employee. The best employees end up leaving this workplace. I am looking to get out before my self esteem is completely crushed."
