Bullying is common in all walks of life - not least at work.
It's nasty and its results are long-lasting. But sometimes there's something more than bullying, where executives in organizations the world over are malicious, violent and often sadistic.

Have no doubt that malaise applies to small organizations as well as large - and is not limited to the stories in the media about big companies led by wicked people.
