Politics plays a role in every office environment. Sit back observe before you make any move. Realize that this is part of getting along in the office. You may not like it but you may have to accept it. Volunteer, do good work, seek out a real mentor and learn to play the game…but never ever compromise your core values. A good reputation is valuable.
