The Home Depot (from a previous vendor)


- Interfaced with a few different people, all of whom seemed miserable.

- Very rigid brand — difficult to have fun.

- There’s not much trust or freedom for anyone. Just a cutthroat corporate prison.

- HQ built like a prison: few windows, thick security, & drab colors for miles. Their campus parking garage would experience its own rush hour gridlock with cars at a standstill waiting for the light outside to turn green so they could hop on 285

Need some roommate advice! One of my friends decided to move to NYC so we got an apartment together, 2BR/2BA, each room has an ensuite bathroom. The rooms are essentially the same size, except for the depth of the closets which differ by 5” (I measured). My friend was okay with me taking the room with the slightly deeper closet considering I’ve been in NYC for 5 years and have more stuff/furniture here and I also offered to pay more. But she’s moving here with her mom, who’s staying a couple...

I am so sad and will seek therapy. Have one son via ivf and was overly optimistic . My next ivf cycle was awful, despite good amh/fsh, with a huge drop off with day 5 embryos and abnormal results. I’m going to cycle again and possibly another time but I can’t stop feeling so pessimistic and I don’t know if I can deal with the waiting game again.

Software engineers can easily work 50-70h/week.
They are constantly trying to get the most out of you.

You might be able to transfer teams and life will be good again? :D


- Definitely toxic: talented people disappear without warning or explanation.
- Management aggressively micromanages with hidden agendas and unrealistic expectations.
- Very passive aggressive tactics used to drive results. Miserable experience.

Pros: ?



- pays very well and has good perks

- Sr. VoIP Engineer w/ their head in the sand
- Totally bias management
- Poor content moderation, extremist content, inauthentic engagement, weakening democratic norms, amplifying divisive rhetoric, prolific scams, risk of identity theft... the list goes on and on.



- great for full time employees


- contractors are treated like trash and don't feel included


- worked there for 8yrs had a very positive experience
(GSO supporting TCS)

- bullying and toxic culture
- HR is no help, ppl need to get lawyers involved
(from someone within TCS)



- astounding financial benefits, great healthcare


- too many cultists
- closed culture with extremely compartmentalized information, working on a small piece of the puzzle, with reduced ability to demonstrate true value, unless already high up. 
- collaboration across teams is made unusually difficult and doesn’t seem encouraged.
- not remote friendly -- making everyone go back

Let's make this bowl a safe place for us to give our honest feedback about a company without it being edited or buried.

To make it easier to search: create a post for the company you want to review, adding your pros and cons!



Pros: ?

- culture deck is something else: if they think they can do better than you, they will just let you go

- they think they’re the Yankees: if you’re batting.385, but they think there is someone out there who can bat .400, you’re going to get fired

- they will openly discuss at a meeting why you suck

- Reed Hastings' leadership style was once described as being "unencumbered by emotion". A VP once told him he's not a good listener and tends to be unempathetic.


Let's start a thread to help each other get out of toxic cultures?

Out of the 50 companies we have represented here in this bowl, how many are treating their people well?

In the original thread, Cisco was the only one that seemed to be doing right by people. Who else here would vouch for their company?


Wunderman Thompson


SoCal office is a hot mess


Delta Vacations (Because comments were removed from Glassdoor)
*Leadership more concerned about advancing their careers within Delta Air Lines than addressing their toxic manager(s)
*Leadership that outwardly promote diversity and inclusion but internally only promote their favorites
*Manager(s) that manage from a place of ego vs. emotional intelligence
*Manager(s) allowed to gossip, lie and speak ill of female employees, both past and present
*Leadership is fully aware of above.




- fairly decent place to work (from someone who worked with the Vancouver and San Jose offices). never met a blue badger (permanent employee) who had awful things to say.

- Ashley Goodall (their SVP, Methods & Intelligence) co-authored a brilliant book on leadership and people management called “Nine Lies About Work” that makes me believe they can be an awesome place to work


- red badgers had low morale since they’re contract workers and can be terminated at any time
