Advice please. Currently work as a nurse at a PCP office, amazing insurance M-F, but manager is TOXIC. Constantly makes fun of employees to other employees calls people idiots (her boss does not care). I have an offer from long term care 7p7a and rotating weekends and holidays. Doesn’t bother me. Does bother my husband. Thoughts?

Yeah I agree! There’s only a certain extent that a salary or your patients is a good motivation for work. If you don’t have someone to look up to and respect and aspire to be or better still appreciate their leadership, time to leave. You’ll be happier. Good luck.

Looking back on my 20+ years in the field, I regret not leaving the toxic environments sooner. There were only a couple, but they had a huge effect on my life.

Do you have kids? If husband isn’t on board, childcare could be an issue. Do he understand what the toxic environment is doing to you?

I finally broke down and today him about it tonight. And no kids.

I think a toxic manager can have a seriously detrimental effect on your work life. Try to stress that to your husband? Seems like it's worth it to have you be happier

I also work in a unit with a pretty toxic manager. She definitely has her favorites and she gossips about employees to other employees, but in turn, they also talk about her. She doesn’t have the respect of anyone, and as a result I am seriously considering not staying at this job long term. Toxic leader ship seems to be a problem across healthcare unfortunately

I would definitely leave a toxic environment, but can you hold out for better hours? Long term care (in my experience) was pretty different from hospital or office and I struggled a lot with the environment that seemed toxic to me. I am sure LTC varies for all!

How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.

I get the pressure is on, but step down before to let someone else take your place
