Avoid Toxic Culture

The company CEO called me into his office.

I set there for 2 hours to "review a marketing campaign"

During those two hours the CEO:

1. Answered a call from a customer and his wife

2. Let 3 other people come in and 'run something by him'

3. Ordered lunch

4. Replied to emails

He never excused himself or apologized, because he didn't seem to think I mattered.

It was one of the most humiliating experiences in my career.

It took me a while to realize it, but I had a choice:

I could continue pretending "it's not too bad"

or I could leave.

After that meeting,

I went back to my desk and started updating my resume.

Two months later I left.

Toxic culture isn't something you should tolerate

it's a sign you are in the wrong place.
