You don’t need to take that anymore - ask to switch teams and if they don’t let you then they’re clearly showing they value her actions more than your contributions, in which case I’d start looking.


I’ve had multiple conversations with our director about how her actions are not only unproductive, but affect team morale. Do I ask to change teams, leave the agency, or just try to stick it out? (For reference, this has been going on for over a year and I’m just tired of it by now)

If you cannot execute on producing good quality work, don't take on a new task/role. You will exhaust yourself, and your work effort will reflect badly on the stakeholders. They will also communicate to others accordingly.

I’ve recently been feeling down and just blah both at work and outside of work, though it does impact work a lot. During college, I was on an anti-depressant medication for a couple of years that seemed to make me feel better and more productive. After college I warned myself off of it and seven years later, my doctor is helping me slowly get back on it. Curious if any others here have gone on and off anti-depressants and anything i should be aware of in terms of how it may impact work. **fingers crossed that it will at the very least perk me up a bit**
