Hi, We recently (well three years ago) had a new boss in the drawing office. The old boss was far from perfect but at least you knew where you stood with him. The new boss has bought in a few people who along with a couple of the old guys can do no wrong. They get mentioned in meetings and praise heaped on them for the slightest thing, where for the rest of us, anything we do is just our job and no more than is expected. He also seems to go out of his way to undermine certain people by almost arbitarily assigning their tasks to other people. Is this guy just an empire builder? What's the best way of dealing with this character?
Thanks in advance.
