Anyone else been feeling down lately and starting to question where they are in their career. I’ve seen numbers of people I’ve worked with over the years leave my company. Because of this, I’ve started to question my own abilities. It feels like my career is at a stand still. Any advice?

I think lots of people feel that way, and it usually correlates to a work environment that isn't supportive. I help people figure out what's missing in their careers and what their next move is. Feel free to DM me if you want to chat.

I had the exact same feeling at this company. It is not you. It is MediaCom. LEAVE!!!!!! you deserve to be treated better. I had a toxic manager, and when i complained they tried to push me out the door. I got a call months later from my replacement that she did the same to someone else. And HR did nothing to help they were so condescending, had no appreciation for years of hard work and loyalty. I have happily been at another company for years and realized I am good at my job. it wasn’t me, they are toxic at the core. I hope you go elsewhere and find good things!

Where did you end up moving onto?

Try asking your company to give you something new. Either switch sectors are just ask for a task you’ve never done. Could bring about some spark of interest with your job. And if they don’t have anything for you then yeah. Move one and start looking for something new

My boss did mention this in our 1x1 meeting. I guess for me I’m just not sure what’s next: new company, lateral move, or a career pivot

You are not alone, I’ve been feeling the same. Not sure what’s next for my corporate career.

I’ve been focusing on monetizing my skills. At this point in my life I’m not sure moving to another company or a lateral move is enough to keep me satisfied.

Take time off alone with the focus of thinking of this. Time for you and your thoughts. It might not answering but part of not knowing this for me was understanding I was in a constant rush, with constant noise. We don't even get to observe our lives.
