What to do when stuck in a nightmare situation at work?
What's the best thing to do in situations where you're in a team and you're working on a product that you don't enjoy, working on tech that you don't enjoy, doing 0 development work, and unintentionally building a distrustful relationship with the manger?
I'm asking not because I'm having issue with Amazon but with a previous company that I was at (PayPal). I initially wrote a detailed post about my abusive PTSD experience but I didn't express myself properly and so I took it down realizing it was a waste of time to get sympathy.
I tried team switching but manager resisted and other managers in the org said no due to "internal freeze".
At what point do you throw in the towel? What should you do immediately? For me it takes about 2 months at least to prep for interviews so it's not an immediate solution to move to another company...And most importantly how do you avoid this in the future?
