If you are not happy in your work place, would you quit your job?

January 31, 2010 10:32am CST
My office mates would always tell me that I'm a good employee, and perform well. My immediate boss noticed the same and even gives me a pat on my shoulder, however, when it comes to promotion, I am left behind. Though the pay is good, I am considering to quit and look for a another one. Is this the right step?

The very important question that you should ask yourself is if you're happy with what you do. You should weigh things also when it comes to this kind of decisions. It's not easy looking for a new job, adjusting not only with your work but also with the people around you. If your problem is that you were not promoted, maybe you should think like why you didn't get that promotion or ask tips from your colleagues also for you to improve more.

Do you like your job? The pay is already good, why do you want a promotion? Do you have ever thinking about people who don't have a job and don't have any money? You already have good money and job, and just because you don't have a promotion, you want to quit... If i was you and that i like my job, i would not quit, but if i don't like it and i'm really sure i could find another better job, i would quit. But it's your choice ^^.

I like my present job, but it hurts to know that the person they promoted is just new and doesn't deserve it. We can smell politics in the office and it does not sound good. Management should be fair to all its employees. Thanks Sushie93

You seem to have a good group of employees surrounding you. Don't forget that every job out there will not have such good companions. I prefer to be around people I enjoy working with, even if I don't make a ton of money. Money is not what brings happiness. A good working environment made me a much better person. My summer job paid less than a job I took for the holiday season. I will return to my summer job for the 6th time this summer because the people are a joy to be around, even if I dont make as much money at the holiday job that I have never returned to. I do not have any regrets in this matter. Do what you feel is best, but be sure that you will be happy at your new job before you quit your current one. Good luck and I hope that you find what you are looking for.

I think that if you really like your job, there is no reason to quit. i mean, you want a promotion, but if the pay is good, you don't need to quit, don't worthwhile. just if you find a better job or something...
