I’m prohibited from saying anything negative about work
My company has updated its policies so that employees cannot say anything negative about our work. While I understand that the company wants to maintain a good reputation, it almost feels too restricting. For example, we're not allowed to write that we're working a lot of hours in case someone thinks this reflects poorly on the company's work-life balance. These policies feel like they undermine workplace transparency, and I worry if there are any real issues they won't rise to the surface and be addressed as they should.
Is this a common practice? What are policies like this like at your company?
