HR is a joke, you report bullying they go against you. You have witnesses but they are too scared to come forward in case of retribution. As soon as you report it you suddenly find your self getting put on PIPS.
The fact is IT buys things for so called research and guess what the lucky IT team leaders get to go home with their free toys!!
I have seen the team leader openly berate people in front of the team.
One last thing on money wastage....have you seen the meeting room they built on the strand floor. See where all Pearson money going for some one with a big ego and a small d--k. If you go in you look like you in a command center. Was this room needed or did management need another toy?
