You can find similar comp elsewhere. And even if you cant, still just try to get out. Nothing good comes from being part of bad teams. Best case scenario you become as terrible as them and adapt. No comp should be worth that.

Yeah leave. I moved two months ago and my ENTIRE LIFE is better, even though I'm now working longer hours, because I enjoy what I do, and somehow that enjoyment/excitement helps me have energy to gym on evenings, cook, and still hang with friends if we have time on weekends. I'm still shaking off the depression I felt from the last job, but trust me, no comp is worth peace of mind.

Find out. When you’re looking elsewhere and start interviewing with teams that are more functional, you will feel more hopeful at work and your engagement improves until you leave them.

Not bragging or showing off, but our household TC is £225k excluding bonuses. Somehow we manage to save £6k a month after paying out mortgage & bills and then a further £2k in corporate pension schemes. We invest our savings but the feeling of putting away £8k each month feels great. I thought when I'd get to this stage I'd have more desires to spend the money but there is nothing I can honestly think of right now that I'd love to buy. I didn't even spend a penny during the black Friday sales
