My personality is not conducive to the fake closeness that my agency parades as being a family. I don’t feel comfortable sharing myself with people who will one minute drink their troubles away with you venting then potentially get you fired/throw you under the bus in the next more sober day. (Something I see happen far too often). I’m also introverted and me not jovially laughing and hacking it up with everyone tends to throw them for a loop. And my being a person of color who doesn’t fit their nicely cultivated stereotypes... So yeah.

@ Jr strategist 1 - YES👏🏽. I cringe every time people throw the word family around the office. This is not a family. This is a company. This is a business that feels no way about screwing you over whenever necessary.
