I work for a company that has employees under a US umbrella org with a “parent” company overseas. Many decisions are influenced by the parent company, sometimes without regard for US customs/practices. The most recent is a trend of “just fire them,” “we can replace them,” or “if they don’t like the policy, they can quit” because the parent company has thousands of employees, lots of redundancy in coverage while US org is still small.
I fully understand at-will employment, but this is not resting well with my soul. I’m tasked with refining the culture but hitting hard stops.
