Jumped from public to a job in a place run by boomers but I just wanted out of public so I took the first offer that came to me. 5 months in and I realized it's not a good fit at all. Mainly the CFO thinks no one should be working from home, and working from anywhere but the office is considered a day off to him. Is this a good reason to apply for other jobs right now?

Fair enough. Like I said, I took the first thing that came into my lap lol

Yes. Unless you think they will exit soon. Boomers need to retire soon and could open a lot of opportunities if everyone is a boomer in the c suite

I've thought about this but still not enough to stick around in such a backwards environment

and this is why you always run to a job, not run from a job

Did you not know about the commute time, office expectations before you joined?

The whole company has a flex/hybrid policy, but finance is dictated by the CFOs decisions. I was brought on hybrid and told it would be permanent because of the company policy, but one day the CFO sent out a dept email telling everyone to be back in office everyday starting the next week

I’m in a similar boat. New job but hate the culture. I already started looking for other roles…
