just clowning around
I worked for a failed start up when I graduated in 2010. Needless to say, I didn't make a lot of money, but the payout from leaving was okay. Been working for a middle sized company since then. For me, having never worked in a corporate job, I find things a little stressful when I was working in the office every day. Since my first year there, I've switched to remote working about 1-2 days a week, which makes things much more manageable. I've been here about 2.5 years now and I would definitely make a change - I don't like hanging out with any of my co-workers, I find the company culture extremely stale, and the work itself is totally unfufilling. Plus I'm working 100+ work weeks - the time to start looking is right now, even though the compensation is okay!! I've got a huge project launching in a week and after that I will be searching for a new job asap... Don't stay where you don't like it.
