Hi HR network!

Hoping for some input. I’m in a job that I’ve previously loved and had a lot of influence and ability to make a difference, but the last couple of years have been horrendous with negative company culture and toxic leadership. My direct leader has been amazing and was truthfully the only reason I’ve chosen to stick it out to not leave her high and dry, but now I have a structural change coming up and will be reporting into a new leader who plays the political game.

Cont’d: I make great money, and I know there’s still a chance to have an impact with the type of work I love (with some patience) but the trade-off of my mental and physical health is at risk. My previous leader will still be at the company, but at a distance and with a micromanager in-between us so I worry I won’t receive anywhere near the same support or mentorship.

I see myself at the future of this organization IF we can actually change the culture, I can see the vision, but I’m so exhausted and burned out that I’m not sure I have it in me to stay until then. I’m not excited or energized by this change, and the new leader is behaving in a way that is minimizing and dismissive, so I feel will require a lot of upward coaching from me.

Should I try and make it work with the new leader and stay? Or find somewhere else - knowing it’ll likely be less pay and maybe or maybe not be a better company culture? Really struggling to process my next step, so if any of you have been in my shoes I’d appreciate some non-biased advice. Thank you!

It’s super hard to move and shift, but I typically give things 6 mos to a year to shake out after big changes. That being said, it sounds like your co has been spiraling for a while and culture changes are a 3-5 year proposition. So, it depends on what you have left to give and if things become more unmanageable. I personally cannot handle micromanaging and dismissive behavior. My last supervisor was this way and I stuck it out for a few years, but I dreaded work. I casually began looking and landed a great opportunity with a step in pay and tons of growth potential. Maybe - start floating your resume and exploring opportunities. You never know -what’ll happen…

Thanks for sharing, that’s super tough but sounds like you had to set some good boundaries.

Your insight has been helpful - I think it’s time for me to walk away and find something else.
