Are there any companies that hurt resume ?

Oct 10 64 Comments

Hey folks,
soon-to-be new grad. Are there any companies that 'hurt' the resume ? For multiple reasons, could be shitty product, having issues with other top tiers, etc. Recruiters, what's your take on this?

Edit: guys please explain, don't throw names.

      So the topic of this thread is how a company might hurt one's resume. I think we've gotten distracted here and your conversation is more suited for a politics@ thread.

      No thanks. I'd rather not get fired thank you very much.

      Nobody gets fired for shitposting on politics@ unless it's really egregious. I mean, to be honest, I'm surprised at the number of people who they're *not* firing

      Yeah I wouldn't participate in politics@ (at least not with any views that are not pro-bernie/warren/aoc) unless I was willing to leave the company the next day.

      We already has this discussion on the Google lounge. Conclusion (which I agree with) is that Google is a highly biased company that retaliated against anyone that has non far left/socialist views. If you have an issue with that then you can leave. Makes sense. If I make a company I'd like the freedom to support ICE and fire anyone that doesn't believe in lower taxes/border security.

      Could it just be that it's your profile and not the company?

    • I can apply your exact statement to every company out there. A truly dumb statement.

      Exactly. Nobody cares who you worked for. All that matters is how good you are.
      Oct 11
    • Not exactly. My point still remains same. Having Cisco over other companies is straight up negative

    Any huge Indian outsourcing company (GobalLogic, InfoSys, etc.). Any non-tech company (Gap, Walmart, etc)

      I've heard good things about Walmart Labs actually

      Maybe Labs, but if you’re in their regular IT department- it’s like a stain on your resume

    For design: academy of art. If you’re a professor/designer there I’m going to question your morality since it’s a very sketchy for profit school that puts a lot of students in a mountain of debt and doesn’t prepare them well.

    If you’re a grad I’m going to be wary of you because they don’t prepare students well. However if you have a killer portfolio I don’t care if you graduated from there.

    I once did a portfolio review session for some soon to be new grads and it was sad how unprepared and awful a lot of their portfolios were.

    (With that being said University of Phoenix, ITT Tech and other for profit schools might also fit the list for other industries.)

    IBM - This is my personal bias based on the fact that everyone I've worked with from IBM was very checked out.

    Juul - I would feel similarly about someone coming from big tobacco or any other company that I believe profits off selling harmful products to minors.
