Ask HN: How you ever quit because the engineering culture is too messed up?
I work with nice people but my technical ideas are constantly shot down because either 1) "that's not how we do things there", 2) "there are more important things to worry about", or 3) "I'm not sure I like it".
I realize different organizations need different people/experiences but I see some obvious errors in management infrastructure and I'm trying to be not-pushy as much as possible while fully realizing there are good reasons for everything.
To my eyes, the things I'm proposing are simple and work almost everywhere else but they are still controversial, it seems.
How much should you be swimming against the current before calling it quits because we can't change anything? It's a general question, thus why I haven't given concrete examples for my situation.
