I completely understand the need to escape a toxic situation. It can be suffocating. I applaud you for having the courage to do a mid day time out!


Sorry to hear you had a rough day. Sometimes putting space between your life and your work helps. Are you feeling any better today?


Yeah, a little, thanks.

I'm a woman working in a male-dominated organization. I'm also the newest member of the team. My coworkers have been given approval to travel to see customers, even internationally, but my boss won't let me. I've been held back in more ways than just travel & have even had accounts taken away from me & given to my male coworkers.

I discussed this unequal treatment with my boss 10 days ago, then abruptly yesterday I took a call from HR telling me that I was being let go.

Any leads for hiring?
