Very hard to find value

It's become very difficult to find any value and reason to stay in this company. Not that long ago, there used to be many. Now it’s just paycheck, and that’s not so satisfying anymore because some of my colleagues earn a lot more after they leave... —  read more

I feel stuck here

I feel stuck in this company, too young to retire, but too old to easily find another job. I don’t see any future here, it can only get worse than it is now and I would leave immediately if I could. However, I've tried to find similar job in other... —  read more
