13) If you aren't attractive enough to date and marry the office hottie, don't even make a move.

So, basically, "Here's how Gen Y workers want to work.  God forbid they should adapt to your management style and learn to do their jobs - no, it's you who must alter to suit them."

STFU and GBTW.

Being a sociopath gets you promoted. A high percentage of C*Os are sociopaths.

I didn't get a promotion recently because of one of those points (kinda). Everyone was telling me how awesome I was, but I felt like something was off. Finally I got some constructive criticism and have become more self-aware. A couple of months later and they promoted me to a different position.

what's a promotion? i have never heard of such a thing

I can't get a promotion unless I change jobs.  The only higher position for me is BIM manager.  Since we already have one, I've peaked.  It wouldn't be so bad but there just aren't any open positions in this area.

The good thing is my job is secure, it doesn't entirely suck (the next three days will) and the pay is good.

True, now convince the author of TFA of that.

This promotion thing doesn't happen any more.  You have to move out to move up because even if the position above you opens up, the position will be done away with or filled by someone outside.
