I really like the points about avoiding toxic managers/workplaces. My personal experience has taught me the following lessons in that regard:

  • Be mindful of cronyism, especially in new management transitions.
  • Recognize when the ship is sinking, and jump ship asap.
  • Avoid complacency in any good or bad company.
  • Never take anything personal, it's just business.
