Polling the Delegation #1

Is it "quitting" (and therefore less than honorable) to get out of a difficult situation just because it is difficult?

I have given the new ownership of the bank a little better than a year. I'm still working more hours than I want to on an impossible to predict schedule and doing things that I don't enjoy.

I think it's time to move on. But a snaky little voice in the back of my mind whispers that I'm being a quitter.

What do you think?

(And before you give me the lecture. My boss and his boss know how I feel.)

I can chime in from the opposite side of that coin - as someone who stayed *far*, far too long at a bad job in order to avoid being a quitter. Leave. Leave now while you still have your health, self-respect, and sanity. Bad jobs suck far more out of you than most people realize, and not just emotionally.

You've given it a fair go, and then some. You're not walking right as things have changed, you're not walking without trying to make things work, or make them better. That's not quitting, as someone else up there said, that's learning from experience. I think your karma is safe :)

Poor planning on their part has been an emergency on your part for a year now. They're not planning any better after a year's practice; time to save yourself. You staying won't make it better in the long run for anyone, and you run the risk of doing damage to yourself. You're worth more than that. Tell the guilt to take a hike - it thinks martyrdom is a fine goal. It's lying.
