I read this and just laughed a little about how "apostate" thinking is really based more on a person's attitude, and that it spills right into the workplace. As long as things were going the way these former employees agreed with, it was a wonderful place to work, but now since they disagree, they hide behind anonymity and call the workplace "cult-like".

I understand your reference to attitude and how it influences thinking but I don't think you can compare apostasy to unhappiness in the workplace, where you need to go along with company policy and often have to put up with bullying and harrassment just to keep your job. 

 

How do you know these people thought it was a wonderful place to work before they left? The article doesn't say that and if they were so happy and it was so wonderful, why did they leave? A massive company like FB will always 'own' its employees and dictate how they will act and think.  What do you think would have been the result of them speaking out while still employees?

Truly get your point Brother Bob...... GordieGirl your point is also good. I think Brother Bob was honing in on the word "Cult", as many apostates call Jehovah's Witnesses a cult.

Yeah, I was honing in on the word "cult" and how loosely its tossed around and even attached to what people simply don't like.

 

And GordieGrirl has a point as well. You can work in a bad environment but that doesn't make it a "cult".
