junon7527d"Keep your head down" has to be some of the worse advice I was ever given. Not only is it unprofessional, it's essentially saying "shut up, the big boys are talking - know your place, trash".
If you have to keep your head down then either you're working in a terrible environment or need to listen more and keep your arrogance in check.
In any case, not speaking up is terrible advice.
@junon I wouldn't really say that, a year ago a junior was complaining too much about how a senior was always up in their ass and most of us thought it was the senior's fault.
Later on we found out this sack of shit of a junior was just causing drama for the senior for no absolute reason - the guy was just reminding them of their workload not being done.
Also another case was when a junior had complained about our CQ being too strict (surprise surprise it wasn't - the guy just doesn't know how to code standards).
So my "keep your head down" was a little under-explained.
