mb331302yABSOLUTELY! I learned the same things through a similar experience with a company that had pivoted and was in startup mode. Leaving was the best decision I made, especially for my mental health. I checked former coworkers’ LinkedIn pages about 9 months later, and everyone else had fled, too.
Exactly my experience after a pretty long career in development.
Don’t join typical startups if you have family, want to stay sane or basically have a life, just don’t.
If you want to do something to earn your own money and get independent join a stable company and do your things after work, don’t hope to get rich by joining a startup early, the cake is a lie🙄
KDSBest3232yI was in hospital ones with a blood pressure that could have killed me. Since then I changed my behaviour. If you are really sick take your time to rest. And overall take some distance some time. One week off and 2 weeks full productive is worth more than 3 weeks half working zombie IMHO.
Good that you walked out of there, give yourself a pat on the back for that!
Also: putting VueJS combined with jQuery in Django: what the heck? 🙁
That's a good read, the best wishes to you in your new endeavors.
Not every boss is awful, I have a relatively chill boss right now (not telling you what to do or rushing you to get back though, just saying nice bosses are a bit rare but exist)
