re: Software People — How Do You Deal With Stress/Bullies/Frustration? VIEW POST


I recently was terminated after working 100h weeks for a month, and thir reason was 'I wasn't meeting expectations'. I wasn't given an opportunity to ask what the expectations were, or why Noone mentioned it before they booted me.

Unfortunately bad things happen, good people get dumped on and some people are incapable of recognizing the value of other's efforts. Talking to friends, candidly assessing my contribution to the situation and having a thick skin all help. Trusting in yourself and in the feedback from others have always helped me get through tough days/weeks/months.


Thanks for the good wishes - I am. Got a new offer a week later with a company that I wanted to work for a few years ago, so it all worked out for the best.
