Or RIF'd as they put it as there really isn't a "cause".
Behind the scenes, I'm told that I'm too direct. And I am a direct kind of guy (7-4-1-2). Very results-oriented. I'm told that I am too direct for a company with an "Asian culture". And, I'm inclined to agree, even though I don't profess to truly understand Asian culture.
I spent the first year driving too hard and, after finally realizing it wasn't working, I spent the next year trying to make up for it. Unfortunately, overcoming established perceptions is a lot harder than creating them. :(
I'm feeling sad, angry and scared right now. I know in a day or two I'll be in a better space to formulate a plan of attack to find a new job. Gosh, I wished I'd kept up with ctrl-shift-k. Sigh
