The Bitter Oldtimer


What they do:

Around since the company was founded (or maybe it just seems that way), The Bitter Oldtimer has definitely seen it all, and they’re not scared to tell you all about it. One has to wonder why they’re still at the job. In the long run, though, they can turn your optimism and can-do spirit into the same bitter regrets that they sport, killing your own enjoyment of your job. Attitudes can be contagious.

How to deal:

On the plus side, The Bitter Oldtimer is a great source for all the inside information you need to really get ahead. Try getting on their good side — you never know what you might learn.
