Probably not unless it makes the news

I’m sure your PR & Legal teams would advise against it. There’s no way it’ll come off as a good look and runs the risk of becoming something viral and then you’ll be in hot water.

No. If they begin to slander and tell lies, get your legal team involved. Otherwise, let them be bitter and unemployed.

Sad but very true and accurate advice

Also go through our social media training, this is specifically addressed in there =]

Absolutely not. Anyone who hires that person will realize their mistake soon enough. That is enough payback

No but contact legal to review if it’s damaging the company

There's no way that works out in your favor.

Got an offer fr vmware worried about job security should I join or not as I have heard frequent layoffs happen there specially in india VMwware ,kindly suggest what to do !

I don’t belong in my job. I didn’t mind it when I joined in January and was interacting but as we’ve been work from home longer, the less motivation I have. I don’t enjoy the work but I’ve gotten unlucky with my teams too, and can’t remember the last time my manager praised me without a critique. Maybe I’m just bad at my job. At this point I just am doing the bare minimum to not get fired. What do I do? Should I look for a job that I actually would enjoy doing or stick it out?
