Working with a team which is super toxic and people who are cut throat, Psychopaths/Sociopaths, from a non-US office, just because the project is really good and guarantees great career progression.
Recently got an offer to move to the US and accepted.
Now thinking that maybe it's going to be super stressful and may take a toll on health, family etc (have two kids to take care of).
I have two options :
1. Don't relocate, stay where I am, transition slowly to another project/team
2. Move to the US (bearing additional overhead of relocation, setting up home and other things in a foreign country, paper work, visa and immigration issues etc) and face these people everyday in person
What should I do? Just back off? Or take risk with a hope of better career growth?
Life with legal immigration process now will be such a shit show. Imagine all your super toxic environment at work, but in real life. Everything will be super frustrating.
At least in your country, you can tell your coworkers to fuck off, quit and find a new job.
Here, I dare you to do that when you have mouths to feed and mortgages to pay.
US is a hell hole, only good for people with extremely shitty lives in their home country. Come here only if you're from a shithole country where your quality of life and self respect is so low that the US government disrespecting and harrasing you won't bother you much.
