what does one have to lose? Time away from family, friends, personal life. I'm not saying its not important to make connections. But if I'm working 12+ hour days, and I had a choice between my personal time and a 'culture event'...im running straight home lol

Last week I had a "culture fit" interview at Accenture. The interviewer was the partner of the team and it was the last step in the process.

A few details:

- he interviewed me while on holiday and he made several remarks about it during the conversation
- he kept his camera off
- he went on a 9min monologue about how hard is the job and how in Accenture there are more prestigious teams than the one I interviewed

We do not have the polarized political system the media claim we have. Instead we have had 40+ years of politicians uniting behind neoliberal policies while using culture war issues as a distraction. It’s not Red vs. Blue, it’s the top 0.1% vs. the rest of us and Dems and Reps both represent the 0.1%.

Is it a good enough reason to leave a company because they aren’t fun anymore? When I first started at this company they were new. They used to have happy hours, beer ping tournaments, and a catered lunch once a week with random surprise treats throughout the week. When we first went remote due to the pandemic, they did do random lunches and would send us gift cards to cover costs. Now, they don’t do any of that. That was one of the things that attracted me to the company.

Don’t want to call out of work but can’t fathom working today 💔. Lucky I’m finally in house. Left partner of 2Y yesterday. Always had jealousy issues (her thinking I chose friends over her, her isolating me from friends to have me all to herself) and I finally said enough is enough. Final straw was her throwing a glass of water in my face when fighting. She keeps begging me to come home and says she’ll change. Hard not to go back. Never thought I’d be 32, heartbroken, and on sisters spare room.
