    Complicit Toxic Bro Culture

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - If you're in with the bro club, you'll have protection for your job and a career path, even if you're incompetent - Great on-the-job training for honing data degradation - Unprincipled approach to basic business practice encouraged, especially if it helps the company's public image

    Cons

    - If you don't fit in with the bro club, you'll be targeted and set up to fail - No system in place to support: career development, whistleblowing, victims of various types and degrees of harassment - "Diversity & Inclusion" at this company exists as a public-facing facade which is not supported or encouraged internally
