Kamala Harris, in particular, has had difficulty retaining staffers,
reportedly due to an abusive work environment.

In December 2021, the Washington Post published a report that included
interviews with then-current and former staffers, many on the
condition of anonymity, who gave some candid responses to what it is
like working for Harris.

“It’s clear that you’re not working with somebody who is willing to do
the prep and the work,” a former staffer said to The Post. “With
Kamala you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying
criticism and also her own lack of confidence. So you’re constantly
sort of propping up a bully and it’s not really clear why.”

Jeff Sessions the former senator and attorney general said Harris
“makes me nervous.”

In July 2021, a report said that some staffers believed her office was abusive.

“People are thrown under the bus from the very top, there are short
fuses and it’s an abusive environment,” a person that Politico claims
knows how her office works, said. “It’s not a healthy environment and
people often feel mistreated. It’s not a place where people feel
supported but a place where people feel treated like s—.”

The report added that members of President Joe Biden’s staff have
noticed and are concerned about how members of Harris’ team are

In April, Harris’ chief of staff announced she was leaving, with the
Washington Post claiming that Tina Flournoy was departing for
"personal reasons."
