Hang in there, bee.

I recently left a similar situation. It was miserable. I’m so thankful my hubs can provide fully so I could put in notice before job hunting for another offer and then Ieaving ( as I suspect my predecessors had done.) Upper management needs to get a clue, but, it’s their call and until they do things won’t improve.

Still, life’s too short to stay miserable if you can help it. 

Just my $0.02.

I’m very VERY unhappy in my field. My fiancé can afford to provide for us while I find something else, but I’m afraid to take the leap. We also want to buy a bigger house (plus we live across the street from future Mother-In-Law…a move is necessary!) I’m in between decisions right now but I’m definitely leaning towards leaving despite the potential financial consequences. I hope you find your happiness.

I hate my new job too. I had an interview this Friday doing something I would love and a couple more interviews lined up next week.

Wishing and hoping and praying.I feel yourpain.

It’s ppossible I could stay home while I transition to something else but I don’t believe in quitting with out something lined up and I don’t think I’d enjoy being home.

I feel like you wrote this post for me! Haha..I know exactly how you feel. I am working a job I hate right now, except my department is JUST me.  I sit upstairs in a room alone all day from 9 to 5 and work like crazy.  Tomorrow I am putting in my two weeks to better myself.  After working for other people for pennies for 10 years, I am ready to start my own business. 

I think the best advice I can give is don’t be afraid of the future because it has the potential to be so much better then your present. All the great leaders of the world would have never gotten to where they are today if they didn’t take a giant leap of faith. 🙂

Has anyone told management straight up that the workload is unfair, or is everyone just assuming they are OK with it?  You might think it’s “obvious” (I agree), but sometimes hearing the truth really makes people realize they need to do something before their whole staff quits.

I was in a position where the pay was insanely good (which is why I stayed so long, nobody could offer me what my company did at my experience level), but I was overworked and had no career path.  I voiced my concerns for about 6 months before I finally told myself I would worry about the wedding and after that quit and find something else. I ended up getting found on linkedin by a recruiter from my now company and I start Monday.

It was hard quitting but I can’t begin to tell you the sense of relief I have.

I would keep looking for other work and quit when you have another job.  If you feel confident enough, but I personally couldn’t quit a job with comfort unless we had at least a year of expenses saved.
