My previous job was a very toxic environment. Everyone was so scared to screw up that there was never any innovation - be a cog, you cog! If something would go wrong, the leaders immediately flocked to "WHO HAS DONE THIS", rather than "ok, something's happened, let's figure out how to fix it, and how to help prevent it from happening again."

Very frustrating - I stayed there about two years, and was able to help bring a few concepts in like automatic builds, and unit testing. In the end though, it was not worth the stress, so I found something better!
