re: What made you quit your job? VIEW POST


I once quit a job because the atmosphere in the company was so tremendously toxic to the point that the CEO once shouted at a Product Manager in front of a group of people, causing her to break into tears.

One colleague was fired for taking the time to try to improve a heavily tech-debt-laden codebase that was slowing down the team.

The CTO would think nothing of sitting at round-tables with developers and start singling out individual developers, shaming them in front of everyone and telling them they needed to pick up the speed and be delivering faster. Ironically, the same CTO would lament the lack of technical talent on the job market - yet never thought to look after the talent that was right under his nose and leaving in droves!

I still shiver when I think of that company.
