I hear this far too often from colleagues in the nonprofit sector. It’s very disheartening that so many good causes are run by people with unchecked ego. If I were you, I’d start working on my narrative of why you are leaving a job so soon after starting it. This behavior will only get worse, as these types of leaders often prey on employees’ dedication to the cause. Please leave an honest review on Glassdoor when you go, so others will have a chance to know what they could be getting themselves into.

Thank you for your advice.

I worked in association management and although it wasn’t non-profit, the vibe was very similar. It was a super toxic workplace, the ED and other higher ups did not respond well to feedback (it was “criticism”) and would badmouth anyone who came to them in confidence with any sort of work problem, whether it was with another colleague, a superior or a client. We didn’t have HR and they refused all suggestions to hire HR. My advice to start looking for another job. This type of environment is going to weigh you down and eventually will consume your life. My position had a pre-determined end date so I stuck it out but I wouldn’t have been able to remain if I didn’t know when I was leaving.

You’re welcome, and good luck. As women we often put the needs of our workplaces above our own when they don’t do the same for us. We deserve to feel valued and safe at work. Remember that.
