LETTERS: BULLYING AT WORK; There is only one thing to do if you are bullied: walk

I spent almost ten years in London, working both in agencies and as a client. In 1994, for personal reasons, I moved to Wiltshire where, for the first time in a varied career in advertising and direct marketing, I was subjected to just the kind of bullying and intimidation detailed in your report (Campaign, 10 November).

I spent almost ten years in London, working both in agencies and as a

client. In 1994, for personal reasons, I moved to Wiltshire where, for

the first time in a varied career in advertising and direct marketing, I

was subjected to just the kind of bullying and intimidation detailed in

your report (Campaign, 10 November).



My then colleagues described the experiences of several of my

predecessors, which were appallingly similar to my own. Like them, I

resigned - life’s too short - and my career thrives in a similar role at

a different agency.



I was not the proverbial ‘green graduate’ who apparently needs

toughening up, but an experienced, mature professional who felt that she

had encountered most aspects of the dark under-belly of the industry

during my extended tour of duty in the metropolis.



Thank you for this feature. I hope it will help many people summon up

the courage to defy this insidious, brutal form of cowardice by letting

them know, if nothing else, that they are not alone and that if they

walk away from their tormentors it will not be an admission of defeat.
