She was never happy that her manager hired her entire team before her. She proved to be very nepotistic in her hiring and promotion practices.
Two of us had come from the company's tech support org and were paid hourly and it was agreed after everyone settled in we'd sort out the switch to salary (I was 19 and naive). In 8 months in support I had made 33k due to the unlimited over time policy. In the first 2 months in this job I was still putting in similar hours. Her non-negotiable "offer" was $28k because she based it on my hourly rate x 40 rather than what I had actually been working. The other guy didn't milk the overtime nearly as much as I did, but he was similarly screwed.
She actively did her best to make the original group's life miserable. She crammed 5 of the team into a room made for 2 and I was put out in a bull pen type area. Ultimately I was kicked out of that spot for her sales team (which all ended up fired and a few even got some jail time over cooking their expense reports) and I was given a desk in a hall.
When I had enough and moved to another group in the company I took a week off between the switch. While I was on vacation I got a call from a friend in HR to ask me what was going on. Apparently she had one form from my new manager with my new info and salary and the next form was from my not-quite-ex boss trying to terminate me. Her response to HR's query was "that's what I thought I needed to file".
I worked to get the rest of the group over too and only lost one because he just couldn't take her anymore. On the last save we had been working on it for months and she was fighting releasing him tooth and nail. Thankfully we had HR involved in the situation so when she filed a "whoops, I missed this one" to include him the previous week's layoff she shot her "I can't release him because he is critical to the group" argument in the head.
She then went on to throw her nepotistic hires in front of the bullets that should have taken her out. Ultimately the company was finally rid of her when they spun that group off into a separate company and sold it.
The last I heard she had left the Tech field and become a Therapist. I feel sorry for anyone that tries to get help from her...
It's been 20 years since I worked for her and I can still feel my BP go up thinking about her...
