Vulnerable post, please be kind
I am considering taking a leave of absence from a very stressful job. I don’t have support from management and they only seem to pile on the work.
I do work for a covered employer under FMLA. I struggle with the embarrassment to have to take this leave, feeling like I’m giving up and I’m weak for doing so. I can’t effectively do my job and my personal life is really suffering as well as my health. Can anyone share their experience taking leave due to stress?
How soon is too soon to quit a job? I took what seemed like a great offer, with competitive pay, a hybrid schedule, and 15% travel. However, I’m about 1.5 months in and the job is miserable. I’m working 50 hour weeks with no breaks to keep up with the demand, there is minimal training or support, I can’t work hybrid yet, I get 24/7 phone calls, and they’ve asked me to travel once a month for the remainder of the year. At this point, I’m only staying for fear of how it will look on my resume.

Hello, I’m a director in a front office role at a large investment bank (London based) and this year has been more relentless than usual. I feel unmotivated, uninterested and resentment is starting to creep in which makes me think I either need to move firms, look to switch into something I love or take a sabbatical. My true passion is sport and health, and would love to move into that field but don’t even know where to start. Any advice on current situation / career paths? TIA!

Who does the QA team reports to in your organization? … In my experience, QA are in parallel to Product Team and Tech/Delivery Team, and all 3 reports to management. In some organizations, where management do not want to handle QA directly, they would report to Product to avoid conflict of interest with Tech team.
