    If you don’t need the money and feel financially ok without it, quit.  We work practically our whole life… a little break never hurts.

    If you don’t need the money, I think you might as well put in your two weeks and look for a full time job.  If you would prefer to work, then work while job searching at the same time.  Either way, don’t stay any longer than you need to, it sounds like a bad work environment.

    While I don’t think you should work somewhere that you’re unhappy, I would stay until I found another job. I’d start aggressively searching & get out of there asap.

    I posted on your other thread:

    It’s significantly easier to find another job when you are currently employed than when you are unemployed. It sounds counterintuitive but it’s true. Whether you are part-time or not is besides the point. You don’t have to shout it from the rooftop; waiting until the interviewers ask and explain that there was a budget cut. I would not recommend quitting without another job in place even if you can swing it financially.

    I would be more aggressive about job searching, but not quit this one until you’ve definitely found something else. In my opinion, it’s the responsible way to do things, and I would never give up any type of an income without having first secured another one. You never can tell what the future will bring, and if something will happen that changes your circumstances.

    I also say this from experience. I was working a job a year ago that I absolutely hated (like came home crying about it everyday, hated it). I was so so close to just quitting but I couldn’t bring myself to do it without having found another job. Two weeks later, my Fiance got laid off. Had I quit that job, we both would have been unemployed and very much in trouble.

    @MsSparklyBee:  Agreed.

    It is much easier to land a new job when you are currently employed so I wouldn’t leave until you’ve secured a new position.
