An "All Staff" email was sent out today from an employee. The email discussed the employee, Bob, going on a mission trip with his wife in the winter. And then asked employees that wanted to support their fund raising, to buy t shirts from him.
Bob and I are on the same work level, in that we both report directly to VP's, but Bob has a large staff that report to him, and that he is responsible for their evaluations, raises, and scheduling.
Bob and I are in different departments, but the times I've had to work with him, he was late to meetings, not prepared, and just sort of dismissive to anyone who wasn't a VP. And I don't know if it's because I'm not a big fan of Bob's and that's why I think this email is not appropriate, or if I think it's off because a manager should never try raise money from the people who work for him.
