Is there a poor company culture at your current job? Or even worse, a toxic one? It’s time for you to find something else – something you deserve. Here are just a few of the things you’re missing out on if you’re struggling through a job with a poor culture:
Great Co-Worker Relationships
A company with a great culture fosters strong relationships between co-workers, rather than discouraging them. In these companies, bad apples are weeded out and either coached in order to fix the problem, or terminated gracefully. That way, the positive culture can continue moving forward. If you’re constantly dreading seeing that one co-worker at the office, it’s time to make a change and find a company where everyone gets along.
Opportunities for Growth
Another sign of a toxic company culture is one that doesn’t allow for growth in terms of advancement or continued learning opportunities. There’s no reason for you to be stuck in a dead-end job with no chance of climbing the ladder. Find a company that supports the growth and improvement of its employees, because you don’t have time to waste.
Employees who dread their jobs rarely get time away from them. It’s important you have a proper work-life balance so you don’t become overworked and burnt out. That’s where time off comes in. If your current company doesn’t have a structured PTO system and you’re stuck working long hours with no breaks, make a change. Your company should not force you to think your time is only valuable when it’s spent at work.
Imagine the difference if you were to move to a position with a positive company culture, while receiving great benefits at the same time. It may even be worth it to consider a small pay cut in order to receive benefits, depending on your circumstance.
Good Plain Fun
Toxic company cultures discourage laughter and joking – positive ones let employees be themselves. You can still take your work and your employment seriously while having a bit of fun now and then!
