Fast Company

Being considered nice is, well, nice, but it can come with a cost at work. Prioritizing niceness often means not being honest or critical, and sometimes that can hurt the company or your career in the long run.

If you’re concerned with being nice, however, you’re not alone. In a study of 1,000 full-time employees across the U.S. by the leadership development and training company Fierce, 63% of respondents said they’ve chosen not to share a concern or negative feedback at work because they didn’t want to seem combative, uncooperative, or be viewed in a negative light.
