Thread regarding Bank of America layoffs

Hyper competitive work environment

I think a little competitiveness is always a good thing because it can be a good motivator for improving performance. However, I think that it no longer exists here and that BofA has long since become a place of disruptive and selfish competitiveness in which the sabotage of other people's work, backstabbing, is everyday activity.
I don't understand why the bank allows it, primarily because people who are overly competitive are never focused on the interests of the bank, only on beating others... I do not need this kind of atmosphere at all and I only think about how to leave as soon as possible.

When a company makes decisions to "gamify" work....it sets the culture to a place that there are only two options, win or lose. When that is the culture in place then folks begin to do whatever it takes to win because the perception becomes that only winners will retain their job. When you couple what with broad statements from executives like "conflict is good" and "disruption is the only way to remain competitive", you set the overall environment to be argumentative. When you combine the above concepts you get the kind of selfish competitiveness noted. People are no longer helping one another because they are too busy stepping on others to get ahead.

The human species is competitive by nature, I don't think there is an economic system that doesn't have that feature. That is the driving force behind innovation and progress. Work with it, work around it or keep searching for the ideal work place. Good luck to you.
