    I think your "so called" friends at work may have a point. Management is aware of the situation and unable to resolve it. You like your present situation enough to stay so, s*ck it up (hope I'm not being to blunt). Your in an imperfect situation that's not going to change. Do your work, take up the slack on her's, and management may well recognize you for the extra effort. She'll retire eventually and you'll win favor with your superiors. My two cents.

    The comments made by Theophrastus is so true. If you have exhausted all ways of dealing with your work partner, then taking the next step to your boss would be normal.

    There are ways to do this in a polite and professional manner with going the next level. Ensuring that evidence is brought forth detailing with the issues is very important.

    Good luck, this is very difficult because of the time you spend with the people around you at work.

    If one person in your team isn't pulling her weight and is a negative influence on morale then it's your manager's job to sort her out. So I think you should take your problems to your supperior.

    The thing is that work-place friends aren't necessarily real friends because your relations with them are ultimately built upon a professional relationship, and part of a professional relationship is the knowledge that you are managed by other people.

    So while it might be off to run to mommy when you're dealing with normal friends, in a professional situation there's nothing wrong with it. You owe it to yourself and to the people who employ you to try and get the problem solved.

    That would be a difficult situation Java especially if this woman is lazy and may take credit for others work, if management can see what she is like why dont they do something about it...??

    Work place politics is hard, not everyone is going to get on well, I am lucky in the respect that I like pretty much most people I work with and there are over 60 of us here, if there have been the odd one or two I havent liked, I usually steer clear, but thats easy for me to do unlike yourself ... so , is it possible to be removed from working with this woman ...?? that way you wouldnt have the grief that you do and the fact you dont like her and her work ethics will have no baring on you ...
