As a company that I joined before graduating, :rofl: I still don’t have a previous employer~

When there’s little money and a lot of work, and you can’t see any hope for change in the future.

The culture of flattery is severe. The leader smiles at superiors but is harsh and indifferent to subordinates, and despite not understanding technology, still makes arbitrary decisions. The IT technology stack is at least 5 years behind the industry. There has been no salary increase for 7 years, and various benefits and year-end performance bonuses have been canceled. It’s like a frog being boiled in warm water, there’s no hope.

I can say it’s because of various bizarre systems, whatever the leader says goes. :joy:

Most of the employees at my previous company lived within 2km of the office. There were two shifts, A and B. Shift A started at 9:30 AM and ended at 6:30 PM. Shift B started after 9:30 AM and required a full 7 hours of work (excluding meal times), so if you started at 10:00 AM, you would finish at 8:00 PM.

When I had to commute a long distance (25km) to work, even if I was on Shift A, I felt awkward leaving at 6:30 PM if my colleagues were still working. Many colleagues who lived near the office would leisurely have a meal, go shopping, then return to the office to play games and clock out later.

I heard that in a certain design department, internal teams would compare working hours, and if you left early, you would be called in for a talk! Competing over who stays at work the longest is completely unnecessary.

Previously, I would leave home at 8:00 AM and get back at 9:30 PM every day.

Many people in my previous company drove cars with “Shaanxi B” plates, and their quality was very low, driving out the good with the bad.

The leader appointed four incompetent classmates as leaders, it’s really disgusting.

Our leader doesn’t understand technology and only knows SQL. Every time there’s a code review, they can point out a dozen or so table aliases that are not standardized, but they don’t know anything else.

Isn’t it better to go to a better platform and learn more things?

The previous company sold product solutions, but when I joined the client side, it became outsourcing. There was no sense of belonging at all, just me alone at the client side, which was meaningless.
I directly joined the client side…

Can’t learn anything

In my previous job, I worked for over 8 years. Eight years! The war was won, but I ended up leaving.

On the technical side, things became increasingly restricted, with no progress. The demands and changes in business grew larger and more complex, and the outdated technology couldn’t cope at all. Apart from showing an attitude (working overtime like crazy), there was almost no value left…

Low pay and lots of work. If you have the ability and opportunity, just change jobs.
