I handed my notice in yesterday. My department at work restructured last year and centralised the department I work in making several redundancies. It went from 3 people in my department in my office to only me working part time 3 days a week.
Over the last year the work has become more stressful, we do not have enough staff to service our clients and I've just started hating it more and more as the weeks pass. I've been working more hours than contracted to, not taking lunch hour and putting my laptop on on my days off.
The higher management have taken no accountability for fucking up what was a great department under the company they bought over.
So yesterday I resigned. My branch staff are trying to persuade me it will get better. That senior management are having a meeting at the end of the month as no one is happy with my department and what they have done to it but they can't guarantee anything will change so I'm leaving.
It's a job I did love and the only thing drawing me to staying is all the benefits. Private health care, income protection, fantastic pension etc. but I've decided that with my health this shouldn't be a motivator for me.
I've accepted a new role working within cancer services and start in the New Year.
