Backstabbing, throwing people under the bus, two-faced colleagues, managers that don't own up to their mistakes, negative feedback instead of constructive feedback (and/or never any positive feedback) Just a few examples.

Depending on where you sit within PwC, you’re likely experiencing it right now. I hate the culture at this firm

This is even at Accenture where it’s one of Glassdoor’s Best Places to work. Corp America brings out the worst in un-evolved people.

But I also don’t want her to “ruin” it for her friends.. I don’t think she’ll be able to keep the “Santa isn’t real” secret to herself (Cont)
