|Someone I know has been working at a startup for a almost a year. 2 months after their (2 weeks) vacation they decide to quit for another (closer) job.|
This is what the CEO wrote to that employee:
"I would like that employees don’t take two weeks of paid vacation then give notice the next week, feels like stealing from the company but that’s life. I really wish you hadn’t, it leaves us with a terrible experience from someone we I enjoyed working with. Especially when that money really matter to us."
That employee had glowing reviews from his colleagues during their time at that startup. The CEO even tried to cajole them into staying. Also, that employee still has not received last months pay ...
Are all startups like this?
