Being viewed as an unprofessional employee is one of the worst fates you can suffer in the work world, but it’s also something that is totally in your control. If you want to be viewed as a professional, capable employee, then you need to act like one and avoid these really bad habits.
Being Consistently Late
It isn’t really a problem to arrive late one or two times, but showing up extremely late multiples times a week is. When your tardiness becomes a pattern, you’re telling the entire office that you don’t know how to manage your time and that you don’t care about your job. It reflects poorly and causes your boss and co-workers to view you as a lazy employee.
