Every one if them have been more successful than the awful mgr's they had at MS.
It's not your fault.
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?
