Here are some of the lessons pointed-out:

1. HR is not your friend.

2. The people who get promoted are not always the most qualified.

3. Nepotism will get you far.

4. Being visible with higher-ups will also get you far.

5. Sometimes if you’re too good at your job, you won’t be able to move departments.

6. Diversity in upper levels still has a way to go.

7. It’s very easy to get too comfortable with benefits and yearly bonuses or raises.

8. Loyalty is not valued.
