Stay true to yourself and your values. Don’t let anger or feelings of powerlessness turn you into someone you don’t want to be. Don’t be a victim—vote with your feet. Last but definitely not least, there’s no percentage in being a victim. If you’ve made numerous good faith efforts to improve things—to no avail—it may just be time to go. Leaving an intolerable situation is usually liberating.
Gaining control of your own career can take many forms. Managing your own management is an important one of them.
