Learn from bad manager experiences to avoid repeating them
Once a manager has formed an opinion, good or bad, it is really hard to get them to change it. If you take the time to figure out whether you and a manager will work together well before you take the job it will save you a ton of pain. It will also reduce the risk of having to leave the company to get away from a bad reputation (which can hound you your entire career).
In the end though, figuring out what created the problem while accepting you likely can’t change the manager will help you determine what you need to do to fix it. It likely will mean looking for a new job, but if you at least understand how you got there you can hopefully avoid making whatever mistake was made again.
Best of luck!
