No Support from Management
- I have no support from the mangement / team leader when on duty, no acknowledgement of my knowledge and skills, and the manger denied my request to go to a training session to update my skills.

- I have been with this company for my well over 10 years. All the above fits the criteria for my resignation. Will add one more to the list, when an employee doesn't feel the support of his/her manager professionally and personally, meaning, your position is worthless when the support isn't there. When you work for someone who shows no support when your loved one passes on, the manager doesn't lose, the company does. Pity.
- —Guest No appreciation/no support
- i have been at my job 4 years. Many times my boss has talked about bonuses and benefits, and even raises and vacations, but nothing ever comes. When I asked for a raise he said no, citing the economy, but I'm not the only employee. Another girl there has the exact same qualifications and gets paid almost $10 per hr more! I have 3 months seniority over her. I do 3 people's jobs because there are only 3 of us, including the boss. I have talked to a temp agency and could have a job next week! Plus the crap that was pulled this past week....the other girl had an issue with the office next door and said she would discuss it with them, but she never did. Instead, she just spread gossip, and when wind of her discontent reached the other office, they came and asked me about it. I didn't lie, I told the truth and I went and told my boss about it too. Well he went over there and told them I'm crazy and they shouldn't listen to me because I dont know what I'm talking about! WOW, loser!

Too Industrial and Impersonal
- I am currently employed at a company that does not meet the same goals I have. I get in trouble because my heart is too big and I make desicions that are not at company level. I also have the tendency to apologize too much and it seems like people get frustrated at me when I do. I have learned to apologize when doing something wrong or being corrected by someone else because that was how I was raised. I have been with the same company for 3 seasons and I usually switch departments every couple of seasons. I spent 2 in games and this will be my 2nd season in tolls. Sadly I hate to go but the fact that this is a seasonal job 3 months out of the year and all makes me yearn for a year long job and starting a career. I had a fight with my family today because I held out this past year for this job and now want to quit. My co-workers are great and my supervisor is awesome but the company is cracking down and implementing more rules which is why I changed departments to begin with. Solution -- quit and pray.

Piling It On
- When I started my job, i was able to keep up. In the 7 years since, more tasks have been added to my workload and now I can't perform the one task that I was hired to do. Stress, stress, stress.

Careers in Education
- My boss laughed at me when I told her that I was having panic attacks as a result of a co-worker's verbal abuse. She also laughed when she fired me. I think she is a closet sociopath, as many who are in leaderhip positions are. At any rate she said that I wasn't holding myself accountable for my job. Well, I made all reasonable efforts to work with the people that I was working with, even above and beyond what my colleagues did. And she still said that I had problems with accountability. One person that I was working with was falsifying his performance records and was one of the main people who advocated for my being let go. This corrupt administrator made up stories to tell my boss, which my boss did not even attempt to contest or get to the bottom of. As a result, I had no say in the situation and I did not get to defend myself. For those of you seeking a career in education: the administrators are corrupt and incompotent. Stay away!

Should I Retire?
- I have been involved with a bully for 20 years and am a nurse; recently I was written up saying that I need to improve in my nursing judgment; not getting along with other employees. I asked for a sick leave since my husband is ill and 64. Human Resources says I could go back to work and correct the problem and hope it works or be later asked to terminated. I am almost near retirement... 13 months to go.

Trash Talking Boss & Co-workers
- It's hard to go to work at a place where you can't trust people. Its hard especially when you are at work and you see these people everyday. It brings down the morale and creates a barrier between everyone.

Not being paid
- I been with this company 7 years and occasionally we would have a payroll delay shortly before the fiscal year. This time we been having a pay delay every pay period since Sept. 2011. This job has messed up my credit, my life as well as my responsibilities as a mother. Now we are three checks behind and I'm finally turning in my resignation letter.

Powerless with a Bad Product
- As a young person working in IT with a boss/co-workers who have no education, experience, or interest in technology, my perceived performance is directly tied to the quality of our vendors' software. My company allows me to participate in software choices now, but there is a lot of legacy software chosen long before I came along that is buggy and not reliable (but far too expensive to replace, and my boss has emotional attachments to the old - with a stated fear that she could never learn new software). This creates a double-edged sword because management has the perception that I am responsible for software, and therefore the horrible legacy software which I had no say in and have no control over reflects upon my reputation. Even better, I get to take all of the Helpdesk calls from employees using this "completely unacceptable software" (agreed), who can only complain to me because mgmt has a closed door policy. Yep, everyone in control has covered themselves pretty well here.

- He worked at the V.A Clinic as a physician when we started dating, but he left the VA for a Medical Director position in a Clinic for a guy who had a bad reputation. Not long he lost that job. He bought a house and that became "Our Clinic" his words. I was a Medical Assistant, but worked as a receptionist. I love to learn so I worked voluntarily everywhere at the hospital when I had a chance, I learned a little bit of everything. Well, we opened "Our Clinic" in Dec. 2003, he got a job working ER. The storage was been demolished at the hospital, so I got all furniture we needed almost for free. I was then working almost 24/7 at both place. In 2004 He wrote me a letter stating that I was essential at the "Our Clinic". In '06 I left b/c he was cheating Mcare, and IRS, then he opted out of Mcare, fixed the problem with IRS we got married. '08 he became very successful. With the success, he became a bully with me and others. Yesterday I was FIRED! b/c I went to the Chiropractor.

- It was mainly because I look so good and the manager looked a mess. Hey, I can't help it!

Lack of knowledge and Education
- I report to a Director who only has a high school diploma, doesn't know much about business, and makes decisions based on emotions. The real problem is that my manager believes and has stated several times that education is not important and doesn't matter. I need a manager that values my education and expertise, and a manager that I can learn from.

- When the new boss is threatened by your long tenure and experience, bullies you publicly and repeatedly, yet is not held accountable for her behavior by HR/company policy...it's time to leave.
