The first day I walked into the office of my previous job, the first three people I met either indirectly or directly told me that this was a bad company to work for. Two of these people were my managers, so it was demoralizing to say the least. I won't name names but this was a fortune 500 technology company. I found that having my bosses complain about the company and the poor working environment gave me a real negative perspective of the company that I was unable to shake. What was the correct response? I toughed it out for the remainder of my contract but having been greeted like that really ruined things.
I had got the job through my schools co-op office and I reported to them that in my opinion it is not a positive environment for students (let alone anyone) to work in. I sort of got in trouble and the office replied they had never had any complaints before. Should I pursue this?
TL;DR what would you do if the first day the boss tells you the job you have started is bad?
