Do you feel sometime in the work place the employees that don’t care seem to get promoted?
Does having motivation or being driven sometimes work against you?
There are a few people out there who will not promote anyone that has the potential of showing them up. Not good for the company; but, people do what people do.
I think it may seem like the people that get the promotion over you don't care. Especially when you're feeling upset about being passed over for the job and you're looking for someone to blame/some excuse to comfort yourself. Not trying to come across harshly, I just think it's a natural thing for people to do in that situation. Chances are, they do care about the promotion, even if it doesn't seem like it. If they really didn't care, they'd quit, or be fired.
Thanks guys to add a little more details the question came from a conversation with friend on the quality of a persons work. I’ve been blessed on the side of picking the positions I have, but on the outside looking in I’ve seen really driven people skipped over and the kind of bare minimum employee bumped up. I’m almost more inclined to agree with Leroy that a person who looks as if they can fill your shoes would make you nervous about your future. Are we hiring someone who could be our replacement so to speak or seat filler that will constantly need our guidance?
