Burn bridges (tell them how you really feel) / be nice and fake, say thank you. That is the question 🤔

Never burn bridges.


Would encourage you to do both. Treat them as a client and deliver tough messages in a professional manner, be constructive and be kind.

If you want to feel good in the moment and fuel your ego. My favorite Quote in the past:
„May the bridges I burn behind me light my way into the future.“

Go get them!


Thank you, I have been thinking along the same lines.

Remember Gollum is the the true hero of the story who destroyed the ring and saved Middle Earth.


Only children rant on their way out.


Many people change companies. If you burn your bridge on the way out, you may never try to go back to that company, but you may run into the same people at another company. They will remember you and repay you for your arson.


Just say nothing, that’s what I did. I left but still am in touch with my network at ey. Had a terrible experience but that doesn’t mean some of the people weren’t great


Yup - definitely part of my thought.

I’m currently an AE and was offered a promotion to sales manager. I’ve been waiting for this next step but the offer only provides a 5% raise over what I currently make. We had several manger seats open and I know external people we hired received an offer atleast 20-30% more than I did.
I’m currently trying to negotiate but there doesn’t seem like there’s willingness to do so from our hiring team. Should I decline? Should I leave? Should I accept and start looking elsewhere?


How to deal with a boss who doesn’t like you and who is very well connected in the office? How do I make him like me? He has been alienating me and not giving me any work.


That feeling when you check your starpoints and you have more than you thought you did so you take a trip to Brazil for the weekend. Fucking amazing.


Hi Fellow fishes. I'm a mechanical engineering graduate and working as a proposal enginner for Aftermarket business and I have 6 years of experience. My job is fully process oriented and don't have anything technical to learn. I'm doing Proposal and order management for North America. Im thinking about learning any course that will help place me in a nicely paid job. Any suggestions for Project Management or any other course?

I’m a SDR with 2.5 years experience looking to move up a notch into inside sales (those that allows closing of smaller logos) or CSM/renewals. I’ve been on a job hunt for the past 3 months but didn’t seem to find something suitable.

I’m looking for a job desperately because I’ve just resigned from my current company (bad move on my end).

Does any one knows of any companies looking to hire for those roles? Would appreciate any help I can get 🙏🏻

In weird spot. I have a side hustle and love it. The spouse? Not so much. In fact, it often causes many arguments and the lack of support is stressful.

Recently, years of hard work paid off w/ a production deal. I should be excited, but the first thing she asked was how much $ I was planning on sharing? I was always planning on taking us on a trip and putting money down on a home, but this entitlement feels wrong. Especially since its not something she supported in the first place.
