— once you’ve put in your papers, it’s not the right time to tell management what’s wrong with company policy. The time to criticise is when you’re well entrenched and nothing you say can be construed as sour grapes. Leaving with a bang almost never works out, and
is a shortsighted and immature approach to a career. To correct a certain misogynist politician who said nobody will hire women after this Tehelka episode, it’s more like nobody wants an aggressive troublemaker, it doesn’t matter whether they’re male or female. Maybe I have slightly conservative views but I find this new trend of letting it all out for the world to hear on social media, extremely distasteful. What will bitching out an ex-employer achieve? Usually, nothing. At best, some sympathetic retweets from voyeurs who may applaud your moves publicly, but would never do the same themselves. Civilisation is held together by tactful phrasing and white lies even if we’re all vicious hypocrites in reality. How you leave is the last statement you make about your character so it’s important to make your move wisely.
