How long did you stay on your job that you really hate?

    Three fucking years. Never again.

    Same applies to relationships. As soon as you see the red flags, formulate an escape plan.

    @DevRage I was too stupidly loyal and patient. I kept trying to make things work.

    Lesson learned the hard way.

    If you trying to run from shit code, don’t, every place got one. You run only from the toxic people

    Unless you got double salary and believe that people at that place will at least be the same or nice

    Three and a half years. - My first job. Probably felt a bit grateful they gave me a chance. But the self-exploitation they lured oneself into, was really bad. Everyone overworked, probably half of the staff depressive, but you imitate the way the other work: Show your dedication, clock in as many hours as are still legally allowed - even if the code just gets worse. Must finish, before deadline.

    Really happy to be gone. Should've left before. Was quite obvious their way and disorganisation wasn't changing, despite the best efforts. Last thing I heard from them, was that the head company fired the founder and 30year long CEO.

    @DevRage I'm on the same boat (almost). I stayed for three years in two of my previous companies, one for just one year (it was a contract so it was understandable). My most recent one only lasted for 8 months though and I just tell people that the project ended. People still gave me a chance and I had some pretty good offers. I cannot read the minds of the people I didn't hear back from though. Maybe that's what they're thinking but who knows?

    I'm also on probationary period now and looking for other jobs. Questions like that do come up. I think your best bet is to look for one while you're employed.

    Year at FakeGaming.
    Year and a half in Hell.

    Both jobs were making me physically sick.
    I stayed because I didn't think I could find anything better. 😕 (Thanks, brain.)

    I'm at month 4 at my current job. I can't tell if I hate it or just dislike it. I'd enjoy the work more if I hpd peace and quiet so i could actually work. Still dont think I'd ever enjoy it, but the money and benefits are nice, and they probably won't go anywhere.

    Might stay, might leave.

    @Root everything has pros and cons but i draw the line if it affects my health, my work life balance and there is no more learning.
