Here is where common sense and critical thinking come into play. If the job offer is too good to be true, it is! Turn and run! If the situation is so dire that they just need you then turn and run!
Here are the symptoms in no particular order:
High employee turnover
Toxic and demoralizing culture
Internal friction and festering conflict between departments
Severe revenue issues-lack of sales and collections on receivables
Cost micromanagement, cut backs, cutbacks and more cutbacks
Unable to break out of a slump
Horrible customer service and late delivery times
The above are symptoms of a deeper core root cause in business. There is a strong possibility that should you work for or with a company like this your future may be curtailed to welfare or unemployment.
If you are like I used to be and say “Its not that bad or I think I can help this cause.”
Then stop reading this now, right now and leave this blog as you are possibly not thinking straight!
Career management and transition requires a clear head and critical thinking.
