I'm being asked to give a brief "testimonial" style text about my current job for use on my employer's new website, specifically relating to a graduate scheme.
I have been in the role almost 2 years and joined on the same graduate scheme however I don't feel I can give a positive testimonial for the role in good conscience.
I'm perfectly happy for them to promote the scheme but I do not want to put my name to any testimonial because I feel the high turnover and low employee satisfaction in addition to outdated technology mix do not make this scheme a good starting role for a graduate. Additionally this role was recently subject to redundancies.
This is probably similar to this question Is it unprofessional to fully speak your mind on job satisfaction with your boss or manager? however it's more about refusing to do something which has been asked of me because I have objections to promoting the company, though this does not fall under the duties of my role as a developer.
Is the right course of action here simply to send an email stating that I do not wish to provide a testimonial, or just swallow my pride and provide one?
This is a job in the UK.
