Companies die all the time, but if your company didn't just publicly lose all of its money in a lawsuit against Hulk Hogan, it isn't always easy to know if yours will be next. Below are 11 telltale signs that your company is a sinking ship, as provided by the people of Reddit. Of course, if you clicked on this to see if any of them apply to your company, odds are you're already doomed.
1. DeadCatsDoBounce says to keep an eye on the petty perks.
2. diamondeath warns to beware of the soul-stealers.
3. McFlynder says to be suspicious of a friendly boss.
The boss turns manipulative to prevent employees from quitting (tries to make friends with them and tells them they're needed to keep the company going).
4. OfficePsycho notes that an object (or employee) at rest stays at rest.
6. reddit_spud has an obvious one.
7. CaptainUnusual puts it more specifically.
8. inline-triple set the gold standard for a nice shallow assessment.
This one is horrible to admit, but I assure you it’s 100% true. I’ve worked in or visited thousands of corporate zaibatsu’s — everything from Walmart to Microsoft to Delta Airlines to Toyota Financial to Patron Tequila — if the place is filled with well dressed fairly attractive people, it’s a fairly good indicator that the talent is good and tries hard.. If the place is filled with fat ugly schlubs, it’s a fairly good indicator that most people there suck and are just cashing a paycheck and trying to leave 15 minutes early every day.
9. PM_ME_YOUR_EBONYTITS points to desperate and disparate agendas.
10. BeNiceBeZenBeClever says to take cues from the company's advertising.
11. And finally, the most obvious one that was listed by every person on the internet. If this starts happening, grab your resume and run.
