Name & Shame

New THCH3

The post in the attached screenshot just went viral on LinkedIn. The ~1800 comments are an almost 50/50 mixture of positive support for OP's situation with advice and offers for help, and bluntly negative criticism for naming and shaming Fisker. Plenty of folks seem to think that OP crossed a line by posting this story publicly and he/she severely harmed their professional reputation by doing so (a few even ridiculed him/her for whining like a child).

What does Blind think? Was this a good move? Is OP in the wrong?

(Edit - OP also attached their resume to the post, but I removed it from the screenshot to preserve their anonymity).

    I think it’s a good move — if anything he’ll be pre-vetting the types of work environment he’s interested in joining due to self-selection

    What sort of brainwashed boot licker thinks this guy was in the wrong for naming Fisker?

    Dude nailed it, he will get lots of offers and connections from this post.

    Most of the time I think it is your professional duty and responsibility (and common courtesy) to not air your companies dirty laundry. But in this case, his position hadn’t even started so no harm no foul IMO. I would feel differently if he already had a paycheck from them. Good for him.

    I think he brought to light something that every candidate interviewing there should know. I wouldn't call it a bad move.

      Pray describe "worse job trouble" than losing one?

      “Worst job troubles” include “losing job” as well.

      News flash: people loose jobs every single day.
