Who are taking credit for someone achievements and exploit lower rank colleagues?

I've experienced bullying behavior but different team. The only solution is to find a new job. Unless the bullying violates a law, management doesn't care because the bully says it was performance issue. It isn't a crime to be a bad manager. Put your energy into finding a new job, and get away from that environment.
Raja, I’ve never experienced ‘extreme bullying’ and not sure who ‘fleet lady’ is but bullying of any kind shouldn’t be tolerated by any business. If this helps make sure you log down the instances as they occur. Note date / time and what was said etc. Then speak with your manager and HR about it and share how it’s effecting you. If you have the evidence hopefully they will listen and use this to support you and anyone else impacted. Toxic work environment is harmful to mental health and does nothing to improve performance so never give up letting your voice be heard. Hopefully your away from all that now.
Expect this to get worse as LSEG has decided to keep the force ranking system. Where someone in a team must be underperforming regardless of how well that team or business is doing. Especially as you won't get full bonus for performing either.
Not worth bother. I know several colleague complain about the Fleet lady for extreme bullying, Tata guys getting hell. You work on Fleet you know who. They do not act on bullys and you think they act on claiming credit? Nothing done, you just get bad name.
Depends on the situation / your relationships. If you're not close to that person's management, it's going to be pretty weird to report them. What you can also do is being a good ally to these maligned underlings. So for example if in a meeting this peer is claiming credit for whatever activity, you can chime in and say "yes, Underling really did a great job preparing this thing we're looking at".
Welcome to working in every corporate environment.
Seems to be a common occurrence in any corporate environment. Not specific to Refinitiv but sad to say that reporting it (to whom?) is not typically helpful unless the behaviour is egregious, and may just cause you to be seen as a troublemaker.
If you want better recognition and better chances at promotion, an alternative to "reporting someone" would be to more actively promote yourself and your achievements to managers and various groups, also keep manual track of your achievements so you can come prepared at end of quarter.
Sorry if this is not directly helpful to your role or situation.
