Working in Japan and as with many companies here, the company I just joined is also very waterfall-based approach + business side having a huge say on everything (tech/PMs are just quiet). It’s just a lot of rambling with slow progress; we’re already behind schedule. Any good way to change this culture/ advices?

Change the entire Japanese approach to work culture. Should be a cinch.

That's a bit unfair. Kanban is literally a Japanese term, from its origins at Toyota.

Hi,

Instead of quiet quitting, I decided just to quit my job! No backup role, only savings.
Toxic culture, poor work-life balance, terrible leadership, it was just a mess. But I can't say this in interviews.

Any advice on how I can talk about my experience positively as I look for new opportunities? The reality is it wasnt a good fit, so I chose my mental health and decided to bet on myself, but somehow, it seems this is not a good enough response.
Can we normalize wanting a job we like?
