What should we do when your boss is not competent enough but you know that your salary is more than him/her

Dear V,

The best thing to do when your boss is not competent enough is "NOT DO ANYTHING". If you speak it out, you will be in a problem. If you show that you are more competent than him, it will again be a problem. Hence, the best advise is to lie low and let it pass. Like it or not, you cant change your boss in the same organisation.

If it really bothers you working with him, you need to move out of his department - either in the same organisation or look for a new job. Till then, you need to understand that there are some people who are more experienced and hence are senior to you. It is not always competence that governs seniority in an organisation. Happy fixing!
