After reading about your ongoing situation, I have one question: have you seen the new GMC Sierra tailgate? That's a sweet truck with good work potential and looks good to boot. A management level truck, professional grade and whatnot. A Marzy Edition might look good on you.....

Congratulations! Best of luck with the new position. Sounds like you're definitely the man for that particular job.

I'm sure you have your eyes wide open re: the ex-boss-now-direct-report. Folks like her are past masters at appearing normal to their superiors (now, you) while biding their time.

She got an ugly beat down twice by executives yesterday for being the Department of Can't.

It's almost too ugly to watch. Like a train smashing in slow motion into a dumpster fire.

She earned the beat downs, and more probably. Nice to see those deserving of karma (either good or bad) receive it in a timely manner. Smile

She was your boss, now you are in charge of what used to be her department, but you are not her boss? You both report to the same person?

The powers that be are hedging their bets. They believe you to be the right person for the job, but don't want to let her go just yet. Since you are the right person and will prove it, she'll be let go soon.

Congrats Mars. And good luck dealing with Miss Personality. She sounds like a really stupid woman.

So why is she still even employed there?

She sounds like an absolute disaster.

Her incompetence will work itself out and her as well. Just stand back far enough to not get any shrapnel from the fallout.

Congratulations.
Agree with above posts, document EVERYTHING. Consider getting a voice recorder if you dont already have one. A friend has one that looks like an ink pen.

I am so proud of you man, you put in the work, went above and beyond, and now are going to enjoy that success.

I was in a very similar situation and it went the other way. I can say I took the high ground, but it's hard to win a fight against people with no morals that will do and say anything.

It's in the past now, I've mostly moved on and healed, but those were very bad times.

Keep kicking ass and let the woman hang herself, document, but do not engage in her BS.

Went the same way for me at the school system.

My reviews were the worst possible without being bad. *meets expectations *adequate *average - while corrupt, lazy nincompoops got all sorts of bonus pay and promotions for writing fake grants and cheating. I gathered evidence, turned whistle blower and sat back to see what happened. Yeah it destroyed my career and over 200 others, but I won. A pyrrhic victory at best, but a price I was willing to pay.
