I feel like this bowl is full of broken people who are complicit in abusive work environments due to the ill-defined nature of “success” and people who have moved beyond the climb, recovered from that state of mind, and are just trying to keep their boundaries intact long enough to gracefully exit

How do I learn to accept my role in the company and "slow down" career wise. I am used to quick promos and my new company is hiring someone with equal product exp to a more senior role than me, likely due to his 3 more yrs of overall experience.

I personally think going on leave will hurt my near term growth but should I even care? TIA

I’m completely burnt out from work and I’m considering taking a break until the end of the year or so. The challenge I’m having is this deep rooted anxiety of having a “gap” on my resume.

I know I’m in a privileged position to be able to consider this, I’ve found this bowl to be so supportive and helpful so any thoughts are welcome 🙏

Accenture HR: When a prospective employer runs a background check, does HR tell them reason for leaving (quit, fired, etc.) or just dates of employment? Was fired in September and wondering if I am required to tell them (upon asking why there’s a gap) if I was fired or just that I decided to leave.
