What is PTO? Your director prolly hasn’t seen real PTO since college (or honeymoon) which is really the last time no one bothers you when you are “on vacation”

People caring more about the client than the employees that work for them even if the client isn’t a good one

Boils down to a naive level of cost/benefit analysis, haha. Unfortunately, the intangible benefits of maintaining sustained/long-term employees that grow with the firm is either too next-level or beyond the time lens of the employer in this JIT world to fathom.

Overall, I think the focus on individual self-interest over collective best interest (think supply chain maximization) promotes this cog-in-a-wheel status quo

When I wouldn’t get help. I was at a place where I was regularly working ridiculous hours, because the job really wasn’t designed for just one person. And when I would ask for help, they would imply the long hours are due to my inefficiency or otherwise somehow my fault - but no helpful feedback on how I could do x faster or y better.

My most toxic work environment was when I used to work at a photo studio with little ventilation in the E6 processing room. The developer contained formaldehyde amongst other noxious agents.

And at another job, my boss was mean to me sometimes.

Have any of you felt this way? How did you cope?
