Toxic people. These are the office bullies who accuse, threaten, annoy, shame, raise their voices or give you the silent treatment. They can be tantrum throwers, too-demanding bosses, micromanagers, extreme one-uppers, etc.
You are not alone if you work with a toxic person. According to research from the consultancy, Fierce Inc., 80% of employees work or have worked with a colleague who could be considered toxic. Sadly, this behavior is often tolerated.
