Employee Fired And Told His Work Has No Value, Gets Better Job At The Competing Firm

These managers had no clue their former employee added so much value to the company. In fact, they told the employee his work was worthless. They learned the truth the hard way.

This thread was posted to Reddit’s r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit by u/Thinkstopsay, who shared a story about his accountant friend Bill. Although he was quiet and reserved, Bill always provided excellent data for over 15 years. However, because of his quiet nature, his work often went unsung. When his managers hired a consulting firm to help cut down costs, the firm wrongly determined that Bill added no value to the company and he was fired. Bill made the decision that he didn’t need to complete his task during his final month of employment because it appeared he didn’t provide any value. So he put all of his efforts into securing a bigger and better job at the rival company, where he ultimately was much more valued and helped his new company’s revenue increase. Meanwhile, his prior company’s sales sharply decreased. This only serves to demonstrate that there is some justice in the world after all.
