A few things:

  1. The filing of the complaint was a smart move. I was leaving anyway. I had the letter ready two days before. The comment was merely timing. The head of our corporate HR took it very seriously. That man was fired. Disgruntled or not, I had friends still working there. It was my obligation.
  2. That project was our company’s flagship project. The man they brought in nearly killed it. It was a dumb move.
  3. Any opportunity where I inherit anything in shambles and am denied the ability to reinvent it so it works, isn’t an opportunity of a lifetime. It’s a shit show. After I left, they completely gave up on the project completely. It run itself under.
  4. My resume was far better than the company I was working for.

I appreciate the advice and the time it took you to pen your words. I understand that you’re asking me to see it in a different perspective. I ask you to do the same. Instead of telling me what you think I did wrong, based on your male experience, please try to see it from a woman’s perspective and context. Walk a mile in our heels. Thanks again for your time, John.
