Should I resign?
I am working at this new job (less than a year) where I have very nice colleagues and the work load is manageable.
But I can’t stand working with my female boss who finds fault in everything that I do.
I have been working very hard and doing everything I can diligently but she fails to look at all the things I’ve done right and always picks on me for mistakes that I didn’t do. She doesn’t give clear instructions and blame me when things go wrong. She will tell me to do one thing and when I do it, she will scold me for doing it. There were times where she had flared out at me infront of my colleagues in office which was very embarrassing for something that went wrong and it wasn’t my fault.
My colleagues are all aware that my boss is the problem here and they have faced similar issues with her previously. I’m afraid to even ask her questions because she belittles me and makes it sound as if I’m stupid. I’m really at a breaking point now.
My husband wants me to remain in this job as recession might hit next year and I may face difficulties finding another job. We are also planning to have a baby next year and I’m afraid to join another company and conceive within the same year as I will definitely get judged by my new colleagues and boss.
But if I remain here and conceive, my mental health will be at stake. What should I do?
Here are what netizens think:
- Just apply for other jobs while staying in this one. If you find a company that wants to hire you, you can then decide whether you want to stay or leave your current job
- Before you think or talk about baby, why don’t you have a open talk with your boss. Show her your maturity that you are willing to open up all the unhappiness you face with her and both of you should decide whether you should stay or move on. In this world no one is indispensable to anyone and if she think you are not match up to her benchmark then instead of making your own life difficult you should consider to resign and move on. Likewise as a company boss cannot even listen or manage to work things out with her subordinates then this company not worth for you to stay on. It’s your choice
- you can ask your colleagues what make them stay on? then you decide for yourself whether you want to do the same to stay put. build good relations with your colleagues, get all the jobs answers from them. else, you may start looking for another job now before you tender our resignation
