10 Signs of a Bad Work Environment
More than one-third of workers hate their jobs, researchers say, and a fourth of the haters cite their employers as the primary problem. Of course, there will always be malcontents. But many companies really are difficult places to work. If you’re harboring intensely negative feelings about work, take an objective assessment of your conditions and decide whether the problems start with you or the entity for which you toil. In the book, Your Company Sucks: It’s Time to Declare War on Yourself (BenBella/Available in August), author Mark Stevens reveals some of the trouble signs that indicate whether you belong to a really, well, sucky organization. The subtitle reference to “declare war” on yourself refers to the need to snap out of your dysfunctional employer-caused funk and take charge of your environment and, in the process, your career. Stevens is CEO of MSCO, a management/marketing consultation firm, and author of the popular business blog, Unconventional Thinking. For more about the book, click here click here.
