Can IT Professionals Cry at Work?

It may seem obvious, whether you’re in information technology or any other industry: It’s never ok to cry at work.  But the truth is, depending on the IT jobs and the IT managers, sometimes it may be acceptable.  While most IT recruiters and IT professionals would advise any IT contractor never to cry on the job, a few tears may not be so out of the cultural norms for some companies. Why?

There are some places, like non-profits, where a passionate IT consultant might fit in better with the workplace culture.  If a few tears escape, but they’re rare and don’t inhibit your managers and coworkers from having a productive relationship with you, don’t worry too much about it. When crying is controlled and clearly a biological reaction, not an attempt at manipulation or a common occurrence, it can be excusable.
