There is a complete lack of respect at my job. It's been quite obvious for some time now, but I've tried my best to ignore it. My brother is one of my bosses, but he's not the problem. He recently irritated the project manager, and I overheard the project manager saying he would take it out on me by not offering me a promotion when it comes available. I've been here 10 years now, always done what is asked of me (and then some), I never miss any time, and have only had two vacations in the ten years I've been here.

Anyway, I'm at my breaking point. I don't feel like I can respect myself if I stay at this job. It will be hard to find a job making the money I make right now, and I have a fiance in school, and a daughter as well. At what point do you just start looking for another job, even if it will be hard to pay the bills?

Unfortunately, the guy who said it is the top dog. He's in charge of everyone.

There's a lot more to the whole lack of respect issue. I just don't want to get carpel tunnel trying to type it all.

I agree but if he is the top dog, HR really cant help you then.

Well the day you wake up for work and you loathe going I feel is the day you should start looking for a new job. I see you are from Hopewell, is that close to DC? If it is, im sure you would not have trouble finding a job close in your area depending on what you do. The job market is starting to get better than it was a year or 2 ago I believe. It also depends on how much you can put up with and if you think the guy is serious. Is he the president of your company or just the project manager? I dont know the infrastructure of your job so I would base my reccomendation on that.

Financially, Im a firm believer that I rather be happy than rich. I live in Arlington and work for the government, I make a nice sum, but I would be making a lot more if I worked in the private sector but I love what I do and I wake up every morning and enjoy my job. Since your from VA, you know the cost of living around DC is ridiculous but I dont mind it at all because I like what I do M-F.

23rd street Close to the high school, right off Danville. If you see a Jeep Cherokee driving around with "Dolphin 99" plates, that's me.

Didn't you say you lived near Atwater Park?

What a difference a short amount of time can make. Rumor is that Scrap may be getting a small promotion. This is coming from one of my bosses. Stay tuned.
