This happens all the time, in a small organization or a huge corporation. This happens everywhere.
Not only not getting along with supervisors, managers, executives or co-workers do not get the company anywhere it should be, it stagnates your position from getting credits or promotions you deserve. Executives makes money off illegal payoff they get, purchasing managers get money from the very same method or a co-worker steals your work and credit it as his/her own. There are too many examples of how a very disorganized work place may put you and the company down.
This should not happen, everything needs to be judged based on his/her performance. But the problem is, this scoring system do not often exist in the work place you are now. Or it is simply a system that everyone ignores.
