George Stanton helped build Sannas Pharmaceuticals in his six years there, and when he is promoted to vice president and director of risk management, he thinks he is set for life. But then a new president is appointed, and George can't tolerate his shady practices. Atwater-Jordan looks like a better company, and George is impressed with Joan, his potential new boss. So he takes the job, even though it means moving his family and asking his wife to change her job too. But within a few months, Joan's flaws start showing up: she does all the talking at meetings; she doesn't give George information he needs; and she wants to control everything he does. Other people at Atwater call her "Phony Joanie," but when George discusses the problem with the company president, Harold doesn't help. "I'm sure you can handle her and keep her off other people's backs," he tells George. Facing a new year's resolution to try to solve the Joan problem, George doesn't know where to start. He wonders if there's something wrong with him or if he's just having bad luck. HRM and relocation experts give their views.
