If a former manager never fought for you or bothered to reach out when you got laid off and then creeps your LinkedIn every so often is it worth keeping them as a contact, or remove them?

What will it hurt to keep them on LinkedIn?

Keep. Recruiters find you through their network (kinda like friends of friends in facebook). You want to keep as many LinkedIn connections as possible

@SVP1/SP1 just a bunch of shitty/anti-leadership behaviour that leaves a bitter taste every time I see their name: they were quite abusive in their management style, I worked my ass off for them, there was an open role on another account but they didn’t think I was a good enough brand planner (even though they took all the interesting brand briefs themselves when I worked under them), and then had to leave the country quickly when the company fucked up my visa timing. I felt like had zero control over my life at that point in a terrible life-changing event. But perhaps the sting of seeing their name and being connected on LinkedIn is worth keeping them. my main concerns are twofold: 1) if a hiring manager knows them and asks about me they might say something negative rather than try to help me, and 2) given the occasional checkup they do on my profile they would clearly notice at some point that I’ve removed them. I’m just disappointed that they never bothered to reached out after I got laid off or even when I found a new job. I guess it’s better to hide my bitterness/disappointment with them than foolishly show it.

Never hurts to be connected to as many people as possible. Don’t burn bridges

Agree they should have reached out. But you don’t know if they did or did not fight for you or not unless they told you they didn’t. Those conversations are excruciating and draining and like I said they should have reached out but maybe they found it to be really painful.

Agree with above, I don’t get it. What’s the problem in keeping them? Some people just like to back search old contacts, it’s a thing

It is shocking how someone can knowingly break a quarantine and infect others without reprisal, while you can be expelled from college because someone holding a grudge has “buyer’s remorse” one night.
