I am interviewing for a few in house roles, coming from another in house role. I have good credentials and experience, but the company I’m currently at has had a bad couple of years and doesn’t have the best reputation in the marketplace right now. Will I be judged by this in interviews? And what is the best way to acknowledge the company’s obvious less-than-stellar reputation without it seeming like all Im trying to do is jump ship?
