er,firstly,let me introduce myself here simplely.I graduated from university last june.You know,unfortunately,it was a hard year.there are a lot of people lose their jobs because of financial crisis.So it took me three monthes to take this position in a property management company which i am working for. I had a good time here,but now i want to quit.i don't like the atmosphere here which is so slack.I think that everyone here is lack of responsibility,they always want others to solve problem for them especially girls. In the working time,you always find there is a cocard of guys talking about something which has nothing to do with our work.Certainly, you will hear a hearty bursty of laughter frequently.Or two person are surfing the internet so concentratively,and two are reading newspaper. And i always need to work day and night,so i feel lonely all the time.I can't bear it any more. So go back to the point:should i quit?

You should first talk to your boss and bring up your concerns. Try to resolve the issues before hand, because even if you switch jobs, there is always the possibility that the same cycle can continue. You don't want to be taking that baggage with you whereever you go. Now for so many people is not the time to be out of work so it is strongly advised you think this through. Because even the ones who think they have the best job sercurity find out they don't. So talk to your boss, and explain the situation. Give it a month. If nothing changes, go to the boss above him. Just keep climbing the latter until you reach the top. If nothing is done then put in your two week notice. But, be sure you have some kind of income to fall back on. I'm sure you don't want to end up in the poor house.

Well if you are right about the things you have stated above you must quit the job as clearly you are not happy with it. Even if you continue there you would not be able to give it your best as the circumstances wouldnt permit that. Once it comes to the mind that the job is not worth it then certainly its not worth it . If you can find a good job hich you like you might as well leave this company soon.

Yes, if you have any option. For the moment if there is none, just bear with what they're doing. Work on what you think is right. Anything, God sees more what we are doing. Our works are more rewarding for Him. Don't quit right now. Financial crisis is so great. Quitting will make you lonelier if you'll be jobless after. However, continue searching for a greener pasture and where you would be happy and comfortable but don't neglect you current responsibilities in the workplace where you are in right now.

It will be your choice as long you have the option to do so. Its really hard to perform good or at your best if you do not love your work. Plus the environment should be okay as well for you.Start analyzing which will be the best for you and for those who depend on you. Always remember that God is always around to guide you. God bless

Hi, i understand your difficult situation. It's hard for us to remain in a company where the staff spend more time in doing irrelevant things instead of concentrating on what they should be doing. What's worse, they always rely on your solving problems for their sale. We may be able to tolerate them for a short period of time, but none of us is tolerant enough to bear that forever. Sooner or later, we will do something, like quitting the company as you are thinking of. But let of advise you not to take rash actions. As the proverb says "look before you leap", you need to deliberate on it over and over again. Ask yourself questions like " am i interested in this job? Is it worth my time and energy? Will it be difficult to find another job if i quit? How should i deal with it when i become a laid-off worker for leaving the present company?" there are questions you need to think about carefully since looking for a job nowadays is by no means an easy thing. Good luck!

I think you should quit only if you are sure to find another job. Because if you quit now and you can't find another job in the future, you will regret it...

yeah worry about your own job. The economy is so hard right now and people are struggling to find jobs. Talk to your boss about this or keep it to yourself but just do what you can to not let others bother you. It's an everyday struggle but no matter where you work there will be something yo won't like about it

I believe that if you don't have another job offer you shouldn't quit, the market is horrible these days, so if you quit you may be unemployed for a while, which it is going to give you more stress eventually, I would tell you to start looking for another job if you think you are unhappy and you won't have opportunity to grow. But don't quit until you have something sure, because these days we should consider ourselves lucky when we have a job.

Hi, castlehillpeter. Before you decide to quit, is it possible if you can see if your manager or supervisor can move you to another department or area. Or just tell him/her how these people are acting on this job and then they will probably let you be in another area that is less annoying.

It's hard looking for a job out there. So if I were you, just get used to the atmosphere. Because everywhere you go, there's bound to be the same. I could understand that you want to work hard, because being such a recent graduate, you're still idealistic. But just be happy that you got a job, because a lot more people don't. And if you're still intent in looking for something else, then use your time there. Like you said, some there surf the net. Then use your time to use the internet to look for a new job. Goodluck to you!

If you really want to get out of it. See to it that you secured another job because if you did not. It might be hard for you to look for another.

hmmm why don't you try to make friend? get to know your officemates so you could hang out with them and have a fun environment to work with but if you don't like then don't bother. But is strongly suggest that you make friends around and I know there is someone who have the same hobbies like you or any particular interest. Its hard to get a job as you pointed out so why leave when you hard time securing that position. Its too early for you to quit.

well.. you haven't told anything about how big your firm is.. usually you will be able to idle around if you are in a big firm. with overflow of people... but in a smaller company each and every person will be entrusted with certain responsibilities.. you cannot turn away from them.. you seem to be worried about the indifference in your fellow workers about the state of current affairs in your firm.. can't do anything about it unless the management take any strict actions..

Keep on working there and ignore them - there will be people like them in every workplace. As long as you are doing things according to your immediate superior's standard, you have nothing to fear or lose.

Sounds like you should. But hey, let me just remind you that not all girls have that kind of attitude that you've mentioned when it comes to work. :/ :) Anyway, ideally, anyone and everyone should have a job that satisfies the basic needs of human being for survival. And that includes happiness and good compensation. There's no such thing as a perfect job, but I believe there is a right job for everyone, we just need to exert the effort to look for it and not give up easily. And a little bit of luck would definitely help lots too.

You yourself have mentioned not being able to find a decent job because of the crisis, thus means that if ever you do quit, you'd take a long time to find something that could suffice. I would advice you to only quit if you have at least 6months worth of salary, so that if ever you'd be in the job hunting situation again, you won't be forced to enter a job just because you no longer have money. If you don't have that amount yet, then you don't have the right to quit just yet. Also, you could search for jobs first before quitting.

You shouldn't quite right now. You should not care them. Just forget about it and do your own job perfectly. Or if possible try to find out some other job.

You shouldn't. Don't care about the others employees. Just do your job and nothing more.
