what expression would you use when you realize that a colleague at work really desires to take up a higher post at any cost and not caring about whether it is fair or not ...?

    thank you bluegiraffe

    just looking for an expression in english that describes it . For instance, Peter will do whatever is in his power to reach a higher post ,saying bad things about his colleagues ! can you give me another sentence ?

    or for instance , the organization doesn´t achieve the desired results because too many people are competing with each other for a higher post

    Welcome to the forums, igma.

    You are giving us fairly broad, general statements that apply to many organizations.

    Peter will do whatever is in his power to reach a higher post ,saying bad things about his colleagues ! Can you give me another sentence ?
    Please note that in English there is no space before punctuation. A space is required after punctuation.

    Peter will do whatever is in his power to reach a higher post, saying bad things about his colleagues!

    That is ok as it stands, though in idiomatic AE (American English), we might replace
    reach a higher post with advance or with to get a promotion.
