Applied for a promotion and discovered that a former boss (who works in a different organisation) does liaison work with the area I applied for. This person is one of those managers who gets ahead by taking credit for his staff's work while blaming them for his mistakes. I was forced out of my job after he tried to throw me under the bus a few times because I refused to do something that would've gotten me banned from the industry. If I got this job, that might mean having to work with him again, and trying out the same crap. I know you can't let one person stop you from pursuing your career, but I'm curious to know if others have been in this situation, and if so, how did you decide if it was worth going for or not?
