Comment of qWB0oTvjbufe:
no more and more, but when your head of department dumps stuff on you beuscae otherwise it won't get done, and you know that, and you know it needs to get done beuscae if it doesn't your life will be made harder, it can actually seem both easier and rational to just do it. I think Athene's right, this is in large part a leadership issue. My question is: how do the non-leaders put pressure on the people who will be on their promotion panels to show that leadership, given that what senior academics (in my colleague's department at least) want most of all is less hassle? I think it's also a workload issue. My colleague worked every day of the Christmas vacation', does evenings and weekends, and that's just to keep up with teaching and admin. Research? Forget it. I assume the nice senior people are in the same position, at least partly beuscae of their free-riding colleagues. When you're running so hard to stay still, how can you be expected to tackle something as stressful as calling out jerks? Especially when there's no backup from higher up the food chain. It's great that these things are being said. It'd just be nice to have a little more guidance on how they're to be done.
