A couple of years ago, I was approached by this insurance company to work for the IS department.
I had to relocate to work for them.
I was kind of curious, why would they bring all the way to this new city while they are already located in the city where employees are highly available.
Two weeks after my incorporation, I discovered that my boss was so obnoxious and that no one wants to collaborates with her.
I spent the next six months in hell (kept saying that she would terminate my contract), and brought her to a confrontation that involved HR, which exacerbated her reputation.
In the mean time, she couldn't find a good reason to fire me, everyone admitted that I was skilled.
I dazzingly achieved a project which I think she assigned to me to fail and give a good reason to fire me.
I managed to go back to the initial company where I was happily working, and many colleagues would tell me that this horrible insurance company is contacting them.
Why would this insurance company try to attract people from the same company, that is 5 hours away, after a catastrophic experience with an employee who trusted them and relocated?
Are they just looking for some naive employee who might not have heard of the bad reputation of that manager?
