Have a lease obligation in this city and not much other jobs in industry around. Relocation would have very negative financial effect for me and really effect financial security. Love the firm and the work, just the team is a problem. No formal HR to discuss with. Tried to talk to boss but they are all long time friends and he has been defensive. Feeling stuck in what is turning out to be a very toxic situation. What would you do?

Try to schedule a feedback session with the key person(s) in question and tell them your experience two months into the roll - loving the work, loving the job. Talk about what about the team dynamics is new for you and is proving challenging and ask for advice to navigate it better.

How does treated like dirt manifest?

Do you think it’s because you’re new or a woman or both?
