18 things you need to do to make your employees hate you

I got inspired to write this after I saw a horrible Glassdoor reviews of company that I wanted to give TECH/UI /UXD  ideas to.

Let’s set one thing straight – there are always going to be rotten eggs – people that will bash and give out negative reviews and feedback no matter what you do – some people call them haters, some rotten eggs and they probably need a hug.

 

But…when you see reviews like this about about YOUR company….

3. Spend more time touring Europe with your motorcycle then running the company

If only my employees knew how Europe is great their moral would skyrocketed

18. Get hacked A LOT  (probably by pissed off former employees which you lost track off because the turnover is 25% a year)

No matter what you call them you have to take into account that in a general population there is a certain percentage of people with these “hating” characteristics.

But even the most positive review on Glassdoor pointed out that there is a ego problem.

 

 

P.S.

I wanted to share with you publicly what company this is – but my wife Maja talked me out it.

Instead I’m gonna send these guys an e-mail on how to make their  current employees hate them less and gonna write a post probably.

 

Bye.
