I don't have any causal suits at the moment. I've had a very large closet cleaning over the past year. I think I've sold at least half a dozen suits.

Is that second suit with the red polo considered casual because of the Neapolitan influences... or something else?

I've always been an advocate of having another position in hand before quitting the current gig. But that's just me (and my long list of things and people for which I am responsible).

That is undeniably true. And I know I will end up doing that in the end but today I almost just pull the trigger.

Only you can decide @The Noodles. I would recommend taking a close look at your options, the consequences of both quitting and staying, and then consult your wife extensively.

Talk it through with Doodaless, formulate a plan together, get Plan B (alternative employment) in place then talk to your employers in a calm and respectful manner about your views/ambitions.

Noodles, this is probably a sign that you need to start looking actively for other opportunities if you haven't done so already and to take this process as seriously as you'd take a second job (obviously not to the extent of letting your performance where you are suffer). Start meeting with people in your network and getting a sense of what is out there if you haven't done so already. Only you can decide it if is truly so bad that you need to leave without having secured anything else. Hopefully it's not quite that bad.

Most importantly, talk to your wife. Decisions like quitting, taking a new job and investing the time necessary to do a proper job search with the appropriate networking all affect her. And remember, quitting can be awesome and liberating for a short period of time, and then the bills and reality shows up.

Polos or not, the urge for a brown suit grows ever stronger...

Noodles, can you contract if you were to quit? Otherwise I'd stick it out until you find something else permanent.

It is so frustrating and irritating right now that I am actually asking HR if they have an independent resources to help in situations like this. 

 

Contract? I don't understand. I am just a full time empolyee. 

post #20996 of 37408

Independent resources? What does that mean?

blah blah blah :censored:

Some firms care about those sorts of things, Noodles. If you're not into it, you probably want to find a place that cares less about who goes to happy hour. It sucks that you'd get screwed out of a bonus over it but I'm not sure what you can do other than decide to play the game or find a new job.

1. Start going to happy hours and team outings.
2. Get a good annual review.
3. PROFIT!

I don't see the problem here. puzzled.gif

There comes a point in life (after schooling) when just putting your head down and working hard will no longer result in promotions. They call it the bamboo ceiling.
