I used to give it my all, go the extra mile whenever possible but recently I stopped trying. Why bother? It's not like hard work is recognized or rewarded in any way.

So now I'm doing only what I absolutely have to while looking for another job. This place is a dead-end job.

Even to the end, I did everything the best I could to support the client all the while, everything inside was just rotten. Nobody cared anymore, I was being treated very rudely by my superiors snd being blamed for other departments failures (the protected ones). It was for me, a no win situation.
This company always had poor management who did not have the skill or guts to grow the business. They ran the business by continually reducing head count and not much else but a bunch of failed reorg initiatives.Failure became commonplace snd nobody had faith in leadership.
