Yesterday I Quit My Job With No Savings — And No Back-up Plan

Trigger warning: this story contains suicide ideation

I should have quit my job a long time ago.

Every day I walked into my office, it felt like I was entering a warzone. The culture was toxic, and I was over-worked and underpaid. Promotions weren’t dependent on performance. No, management wanted staff to be cutthroat and competitive. I just wanted to be effective.
