Everyone says it’s the best restaurant in town but when you finally go, you have an “ok” meal. Or, you have decent service but not the stellar dining experience everyone has described.
Is it still the best restaurant in town?
Everyone says it’s the best company to work for. They are reputed to pay well, to have a fun and energizing culture and to invest heavily in training and development. When you finally get a job there, you find that your manager isn’t quite the “culture leader” he claimed to be and is, in fact, solely focused on his own advancement. Or you find that he allows his team to underperform and give the unfinished work to the new employee.
Is it still the best company to work for?
In general, it may still be a great restaurant and it may still be a great company. But none of us lives in the “general” or the “objective.”
We live in the specific and the subjective and what matters there is what counts.
