    Got fired today working for a biotech company after 3 years.. (srs)

    It was quick, was asked to walk to HR and was terminated. Never applied for unemployment, will have to do it now. I'm still going to the gym, I'm going right now, lift some weights. Shed some tears saying goodbye to everyone. It was a learning lesson on its own. Either play the BS games of office politics or you will never be accepted no matter how nice and understanding you are with people.

    Got to keep on pushing.

    Sorry to hear it man, unemployment can help you survive and is pretty easy to set up. Just apply online and you're golden.

    Cliffs:

    6 months ago I created a program for the company I worked for that saved them 20k a quarter.
    Showed my manager - She didn't like it (I work with all woman in my dept, only guy)
    Went directly to CEO, CEO loved it took me out of position and put me in marketing
    Manager hated me for it, wanted me fired but I was protected by CEO
    I completed the project, Never asked for a raise but an opportunity to work for marketing
    No funds in marketing was sent back to old department
    everyone in department (woman) hating me for leaving and trying to do good, reviews came up everyone got a raise but me overall score 1% with no review no bonus. nothing after I did all this for them. Why? Because my manager was who I reported to.
    Manager wanted me fired put me on probation and set me up for failure in situations I couldn't prove right or wrong. It was her word vs mine
    I went to the CEO and he told me that no matter what happens to me I'll always be good and I have to believe in myself not let others get to me. (He's a cool ceo I like him)
    3 months go by and I get called in today and get fired

    I just registered for all my college classes, I don't know what to do.. Is it easy to get unemployment until I find another job? I got to keep my head up high and push through. I'm not going to let this get in the way of my goals.

    The UK is a **** hole but Jesus if HR did that here you would have them stitched up in a tribunal; assuming you didnt do anything that would constitute as gross misconduct.

    A colleague of mine dismissed X for legitimate reason, she put others around her in moderate to serious danger in an already high risk production environment, my colleague did not go through the proper channels and dismissed her without informing this person of their full rights, more importantly the right for her to have someone of her choosing (union or otherwise) with her during the disciplinary meeting.

    She got a years wages as compensation.

    I work in HR mang, we're not all looking to rape people for the smallest thing feelsbadman.jpg

    I can't go to him for all my problems, I'm writing him an email tonight thanking him for everything. He was the most humble down to earth guy I ever spoke with. He was impressed with me and the fact that I approached him without fear. We talked about woman, school, etc. While most people feared him because of the way he looks big and tall and powerful he spoke with me really down to earth.

    I got my direct deposit money today and final paycheck to close out including my PPO.

    HR lady cried and told me all you need to do is claim unemployment and we will verify you don't work here any longer.

    I'm 23 years old dude. I'm going to school, finishing up my degree if it wasn't for the CEO and Director of marketing who opened up to me and told me about their experiences in life I wouldn't be school today pushing to finish my degree. I'm thankful for the small things in life. (srs)

    If it's an office full of women that all hate you then you can easily sue the company for gender discrimination. Find a lawyer and get some bank.

    yea but if everything you told us is true, you havent left any negating factors to your story, then i guarentee you can take legal action. Not sure how it works in USA but in the UK you would definately take this to a tribunal with a high expectation of compensation.

    Send the CEO the email and ask him if he can write you a reference letter or something. If he really liked you he might know someone at another company willing to hire you or he might look into the firing more. It's a small world- I bet he has tons of connections.

    What reason did HR give for being fired.. did they make up some b.s.?

    I regret inventing something for the company, not out of despite or hate but because I now realize that when you want to shine people will try to do everything in their way to make you look bad. The higher you get in life the more people try to put you down. Maybe I should have just kept my mouth shut. I really loved the company I worked for and thats why I did it. If I could have squeezed a penny for the company, I would and finally did. 20k a quarter.

    and it got me no where. It made people pissed at me and bitter.

    I realize now that I waste time thinking that in between all that good people exist, people at the end of the day just care about themselves looking good and no one else.

    kinda of sad but sucks. I need to stop putting others first then myself because it gets me no where in life. Just empty smiles and fake promises.

    Not to be harsh, but the CEO isn't "cool" because he talked to you, at the end of the day his company is banking 80k a year off of your idea and you're heading to the unemployment office with no monetary benefit. If he valued you so much he would have protected you from ever getting put on probation in the first place.

    To be honest, it sounds like an absolute ****place to work in and you should be glad you are gone from there. I would do everything in my power to **** them back/lawyer or whatever if you have a good chance. If you dont, then I wouldnt worry too much and simply accept if(after legal consultation off course)

    Yes its hard leaving because your mind and even body have adapted to your working environment and everyday coworkers because of bonds/relationships you have with them but I wouldn't sweat it too much after your mind and body have kicked of(complete normal natural process) and you dont feel **** about it.

    Best thing for you to do then would be IMO is finish your paperwork/finances and take a break of 1-2 weeks to get some time to literally relax and come down from work. Go visit a sauna, meet up with family members/little kiddos and take them out to an amusement park whatever. Do some things you had been planning and seize this opportunity where your mind can come at rest now.

    You will thank me later

    yeah, I have no reason to lie. I know some misc members are aware of all my past posts about my jobs ups and downs that can vouch for me. I wouldn't even know where to start bro to be honest. I just want to finish school and find another job. I'm just shocked right now is all. I should prob go lift at the gym now.

    Went directly to CEO, CEO loved it took me out of position and put me in marketing
    Manager hated me for it, wanted me fired but I was protected by CEO
    I completed the project, Never asked for a raise but an opportunity to work for marketing
    No funds in marketing was sent back to old department
    everyone in department (woman) hating me for leaving and trying to do good, reviews came up everyone got a raise but me overall score 1% with no review no bonus. nothing after I did all this for them. Why? Because my manager was who I reported to.
    Manager wanted me fired put me on probation and set me up for failure in situations I couldn't prove right or wrong. It was her word vs mine
    I went to the CEO and he told me that no matter what happens to me I'll always be good and I have to believe in myself not let others get to me. (He's a cool ceo I like him)
    3 months go by and I get called in today and get fired

    I just registered for all my college classes, I don't know what to do.. Is it easy to get unemployment until I find another job? I got to keep my head up high and push through. I'm not going to let this get in the way of my goals.
    I remember the thread you made about that, feels bad man, but we have all been there or will be there at some point. Stay strong and stay motivated bro.
