    • Gossiping by the water cooler when you should be working will hardly make a good impression on your boss. When the office politicking or complaining starts, it’s okay to smile, nod—and not get involved.
    • No one ever appreciates the overeager new employee who thinks she can solve all the department’s problems before even really understanding how things work.
