TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
For me it just comes down to two cliches, "Do unto others..."
and "If you don't have anything nice to say..."
To answer your question, no I rarely hear anyone give this
advice in the workplace. Most people I have worked with are
quite willing to trash their bosses and co-workers. I think this
is harmful and I stay out of it pretty successfully.
Just to put a little reciprocal spin on your question... What
kind of things do you say about former employees to other people
at work or in social situations? What do you say about your
former employees when you get a call for their references?
Thanks for your candor; this is interesting and helpful.
