I am THIS CLOSE to quitting
I joined a new organization several months ago.
My boss left and since then, it's become very apparent that there was really never any leadership. To be blunt, this place is a mess.
Someone was bumped up into my old boss' role but it's taking them a long time to get things organized. I'm being asked to help out with stuff that's way out of my league. And I think it's being foisted on me because there is no leadership.
At this point, I just feel like I'm floundering. I have some freelance work on the side and have been thinking of quitting and focusing on that work because it's more fulfilling, and I'm better at that. What I've realized is that the position I was hired into was loaded with responsibilities way above the salary. I've been waiting for a few other jobs to work out, but they're not, probably not until the summer due to Covid. I need to either leave or get through the next few months staying below the radar and probably making some people unhappy by removing myself from their projects. I think a lot of people just don't want to do the work.
