It's still a suspense for me to decide that did you quit because of your past or uncertain future or unproductive present. By my exp everybody who has quit does it after being unable to raise his voice of the fallacy on the systems or is unable to understand the systems which appear to him as fallacies. Either way he quits
Numinex12401yDamn. What an unappreciative boss.
@eatPrayCode I left due to a list of issues I had. From weekly feature changes, to no pay some months, to constantly pivoting our business model. Shit like that meeting really just topped it off. CEO got paid every month while the devs sometimes went without. Because the office was his house he believed his check should come first. If the other dev and I wanted to do it on our own we could have made it work so well. But the industry (government procurement) didn't interest me in the slightest, i just liked the product we were building.
@Numinex haha that's the best way to sum him up. I remember after 10hrs straight of coding (while he was on the patio that overlooked the beach) we sat in this super hot room during a heat wave and the CEO got pissed because we took a 2hr lunch. Tried to limit our breaks even though we were all partners. Like man. Nah. I've spent nearly 20k of my own money to float myself while we try to make money, I'm not gonna be told when and how long to take a break in a 100 degree heatwave in a room without an AC or fan.
@Greggergalactic I hope the business soon turns profitable to keep each side of the coin face up (for the time it still has not still touched ground and is on air) and that is the best time to deal out. Because it has a high probability to touch ground if the CEO is on board. Yeah, CEO sucks and does not justify his title.
