What suggestions do you have for management?

"There is a certain manager in southern NJ who is a bully and a tyrant to employees and customers. There have been complaints about her at least 100 times to corporate from customers and employees and they do nothing to her. They just turn their backs to anything she does. Anywhere else she would have been fired, but no, corporate does nothing and I hope the company disappears off the face of the earth."
