I just saw this question and wanted to add an answer. While I was composing my answer the question was closed as off-topic.

I'm a bit puzzled: although the question could have a slightly broad answer scope, it is fairly focused and it is about a real, concrete problem.

Maybe I misunderstood the help center directions about on-topic questions for this site, but I don't think is so blatantly off-topic and it has also produced a bunch of quality, focused, answers.

In particular, that question seems to be specifically covered by this point from the "on-topic" list (emphasis mine):

Maintaining employment (promotions, pay increases, harassment, bullying, poor working conditions, communication problems, etc.)

Did I miss something, or was the question closed too hastily?

  • @enderland In my opinion, the revisions added clarity but not make the question significantly more or less on topic. Was the question off topic before the revisions?

  • @ThrowAway - In the eyes of the community yes. I would not have voted to close nor would I have voted to reopen with out changes. The crux of the issue was that the original question was not really workplace specific. Nov 8, 2016 at 19:44
