Nope. I've been in my share of toxic shitholes.
Or risking infection from a fucking plague.
SAME, the open office was awful for my mental health, plus the gross mismanagement and bullshit pointlessness.
The look on my manager's face was priceless when he was asking me why I quit. He said he had to do a double-take, quit the email client entirely, and reopen it to make sure he was reading my resignation email correctly.
And apparently that was the time he decided to tell me I'd be really hard to replace. Not anytime before, when he could have made the job not hellish.
I am completely biased, but I support your choice to quit. No job is worth the suffering.
I have mental health illness to. I hate working in open office. It makes me ill. But all these dumbass VPs of Engineer think its great. I don't know how you write code in a loud ass fucking open office.
I worked from home the month of January because I was glued to Wuhan and the outbreak. They asked me to come in and said it wasn't working out me being remote. So I said, Ok then I'm giving you my two weeks. And I quit. I wasn't going to risk my life for some bullshit react garbage application.
Yeah, I was kind of hoping they'd fire me so I could get unemployment, but they were hemorrhaging people because they were shitty to work for, so I ended up having to just quit before the job did me in.
My unemployment paperwork asking for more details from a health professional (my therapist) arrived 10 days after the printed deadline to have that form filled out and returned to the office. Things are backed way the fuck up. Pretty much burning through my meager savings right now.
Most companies (at least in California) won't fight unemployment even if they got fired.
I "quit" my last job because they lied about what I was going to do, promising I could do ML and algo development, bait and switched me entirely to design a useless application in a language I didn't know whose intended end users had no idea why it was going to exist, and also kept getting on my case about using disability accommodations. It got so bad without my accommodations I kept almost killing myself, so when my manager let slip that 2 of my coworkers had handed in their resignations, I took the opportunity to give him mine too.
I filed for unemployment because that's basically constructive dismissal and illegal discrimination, but with the system so bogged down who knows when or if I'll get through, and since on paper I quit I'll probably have to appeal or some shit.
Yeah. I was working for an ML company for about 3 weeks before they fired me. lol
That shit is hard, and any apps you work on will be difficult. I couldn't cut it because I'm not a deep learning programmer.
Nice. I see you've got some ML courses; Been meaning to learn some machine learning and see if that gets me hired into something actually decent.
i have a torrent client running on a server.
This is cool. What kind of download/piracy is this? I haven't seen this before. Is it downloading directly from your computer?
