I have had a quick first talk with a company at which I have applied for remote work and I kept browsing their website when I came across this:
Supportive. Friendly. Being there for one another. No crickets when asking for help.
In that section of the blog article, the writer is talking about the values of the company.
What does "no crickets" mean in this context? Is it a common phrase? I haven't found it in TheFreeDictionary.com or dictionary.com. The closer entry I found was:
(informal) not cricket, not fair play
I understand the sentence, because of the context, as conveying the idea that there should be no avoiding helping others. But the exact meaning of "No crickets when asking for help" evades me. "Don't be shy when asking for help"? "Do not hesitate to ask for help?"
