Resentment among coworkers unable to work remotely leads to foul play
August 14,2020 at 10:49PM UTC
I work in the finance department for a mid sized company. Since March my department has worked remotely. For 4 months I did well with my work and even took on additional tasks flawlessly. Suddenly one afternoon about a month ago suddenly my remote connection disconnected and I was unable to log back in. We had the office manager check it and she tried to reboot but wouldn't turn back on. IT person said it was dead. So, because the program used for everyday operations is not compatible with newer Windows versions a refurb was ordered. It took 2 weeks before the new computer was running. In the meantime I had to go in and use a coworkers computer. I could not access my own email or the spreadsheets and date I rely on everyday. After 2 weeks my workload fell behind and I now have to work in the office as it was deemed I am incapable of working remotely. Although I have no proof, I know that my old computer had been tampered with. And where before the pandemic I was getting along well with my peers they are now being what could be considered passive harassment. I see where it's headed and that may days there are numbered. I was framed. I updated my resume and have applied a few places and have an interview on Tuesday. I have considered resigning as resignation for proven workplace toxicity/harassment qualifies for unemployment eligibility. What is your advice?

After I cut ties with my former employer, I closed out that role on LinkedIn.
I'm finding that the interest I received previously especially from recruiters has vanished. Did I mistake and should I have kept that role listed until I found a new position? If so, is there anything I can do in the interim to pickup traffic again to my profile?

Toxic Work Environments:
I see so many conversations on here about toxic work environments. People discussing what is vs isn't toxic and the like. I would love to have a post dedicated to that topic. What is YOUR definition of a toxic workplace? What are some of the toxic behaviors you have dealt with that encouraged/forced you to leave OR how you handled it to make the situation better?

I have a moral quandary I'd love some insight on. I spent all fall legally breaking my company into entities. Recently, my small company divested of one of those entities, and that entity wants me to come work for them. There is nothing against it in the inter-company agreement. I feel a great loyalty to my boss, but don't have much confidence in Senior Leadership and this new offer is infinitely more fun (although along the same lines) as my current job. So, we'd haveto handle the transition carefully so as not to damage relationships. What would you do? Are there any other factors I'm omitting to consider? Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts and expertise.

I've been invited for a second interview and am so excited!
I love the company and what they do, and I have all the skills and experience they are asking for. How can I avoid my enthusiasm being perceived as too confident, arrogant, or pushy?
