Exit Interviews - Fun Comments to Stick to The Man

Thought you'd enjoy my exit interview comments to my soul-sucking job. Names have been changed to protect the innocent:

A<$ is one of the most inefficient and negative working environments I have ever experienced. There were incredibly stringent rules, many of which had insufficient supportive evidence backing their purpose (i.e. being written up for every little thing including speeding in the parking lot or having your cell in your hand while walking out). The rules were outright draconian. The building itself was falling down. Carpet was ripped up, chairs were falling apart when you were sitting in them, and nothing was ergonomically correct. There was no room for creativity or innovation in any aspect of the company, including the training division which was basically there to trouble shoot computer programs and that was it. Much of the time in training was spent spinning in our chairs waiting for everyone else to catch up. I could have completed the training in half the time set aside. The new system being installed while I was ending my training (@@@@) was still as unintuitive and outdated as ##### - an intuitive gooey makes more sense for a post-DOS/BIOS world. In addition, *******, the online reference, had many mistakes and outdated information throughout. It also had a lot of unintuitive links that could have been streamlined to be easier to navigate and understand.

These, in addition to the dark gray room that was wall to wall cubicles of automatons making information age widgets, were the reasons that I chose to leave. I hope you will address the majority of these issues as many of them are easily corrected with good decisions made by those in leadership positions. I believe this would help in decreasing your incredibly high attrition rate which would save your company a great deal of money in the long run. I'd encourage you to have an analyst crunch those numbers. Thank you for your time and consideration.
