I recently was quite unexpectedly let go from my current company for reasons unbenownst to me (official reasoning was 'lack of performance'. They said they had had 'multiple meetings with me' to try to improve my performance. That never happened.
The previous weekend, I had installed (but not used) Adobe Photoshop on my personal computer using my company license. Would that reasonably be seen as cause for sudden termination? I was given verbal encouragement as to my performance until the week before the firing, and was given a christmas bonus the month before.
EDIT: I realized that the answer I gave is a little ambiguous, could be answered based on opinion (which is in part what I was looking for). So, I will re-frame in this way:
If I had crossed a line by downloading Adobe Photoshop on my personal machine, would there be any reason for them NOT to tell me, and to cite a difference reason?
