Lmao I’ve literally never heard of the term EQ used outside of buzzfeed quizzes, he sounds like a loser

Agree with the above. Sounds like a loser to me.

Is this a real person who functions in society?

Also, my impression of people who claim to not know about current events is that they are lying and want attention. It’s not cool to not know anything going on in the world.

He is on FB and recently made a big deal about how he turned off any news related posts on his feed. I guess he's next going to pretend noy knowing what YouTube is or being able to use news related websites...🤔🙄

Hi all, Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I've always been told that I have unrealistically high expectations of others. Makes me wonder if I'm the crazy one. In my opinion, if a person isn't keeping up (or pretending not to) keep up with current events, they are acting like an ignorant fool, making excuses and qnd failing at leadership. The whole thing with the EQ, and their lack of effort to improve their communication only solidifies my opinion.

I feel jerked around by my team, as they keep telling me I will be promoted/have more responsibility, every few months.

I just recently left big 4 in July to pursue a role at a fintech company. It seemed great during the interview but once I got here it was very unorganized, not clear which team I would support, etc. Long story short, I was told we would have a hybrid work schedule and we are now required to go in-office full time 5 days a week and there have been a ton of layoffs recently. Should I stick it out or look for something else even though I’ve only been here 2 months?
