I moved to a new team few months ago. The culture here is different. Lots of working evenings. People that give up their sleep and health for the job. There is a lot of focus on a titles, monetary value that our work is bringing in etc. Very little autonomy or free time to do work that I love or do something creative/innovative. Very diff from my prev team. This culture shock has lead me to have very bad anxiety especially in the mornings. Anyone else experienced this? How did you cope?
