I was at the same level. Toxic, tattletale culture, on call 24/7. I thought the job would kill me. Never been more relieved to be gone from a place.

It truly depends on the account. Stay clear of health and wellness. It’s toxic.

Can you elaborate on why it’s toxic?

I’ve heard pretty good things actually. From a creative perspective you may not be winning a million awards, but the budgets are big and most clients have production centric scopes so you get to do the “fun stuff” a lot. My best friend is there and she loves the team, has been rewarded for hard work and gets great maternity benefits.

Toxic. They’re hiring like crazy for a reason. Everyone is jumping ship. Unless you’re a part of the boys club and inner circle you won’t make anything good.

Pencil dipped in paint and shoved in my new electric sharpener. There are acts of destruction daily in my classroom. Most of my classes are 25 kids in a small room. When my attention is taken for a second, someone does something like this. Gluing things to counters. Hiding paintbrushes instead of cleaning them. 15 years, I've tried everything to cultivate a respectful classroom culture, and they just don't care. I'm so tired. So, so tired. I don't know how much longer I can do this.

I am applying for a job at a consulting firm and it seems like the role I am applying for is a step down for me. I am really interested in moving from my current organization but wondering if I should first go through the process for the role advertised and then try to elevate it or rather bring it up front during the initial discussions with HR/hiring manager. Thoughts?
