Referral help ( toxic situation at work)

Microsoft Arc345
Feb 5 13 Comments

No trolls please. I was in a toxic situation at work (re-orgs as soon as I was hired and being assigned to a role that didn't match my background at all)...my performance reviews were bad and I was ultimately let go. I am actively applying to places and simultaneously working for free for a startup (helping them build v 1.0 of their product so my coding skills don't atrophy :)). I guess due to the short stint and the fact that I am Canadian, am not getting a lot of responses. Would anyone feel comfortable helping with a referral?

    Sorry this happened! If you are new to tech, this had happened to lots of people I know at MS over the years.

    Every one if them have been more successful than the awful mgr's they had at MS.

    It's not your fault.

      I am new. I was quite unfit for this role and strangely wasn't even told this is the role I'd be working in

      If you fine with Midwest location I can refer you at Cerner. You do hire for other locations but it’s pretty rare. Send me your email id if you want me to refer you. Once I add your email to the system for a position, you will get an email asking to add your work ex details.

      Sorry am not with Cerner anymore. Try posting it in careers. Maybe someone who is still working there can refer you.

    Last year was maybe the worst time to join MS with the death of windows and the endless Re orgs that created.
