I know I'm far from the only one. It took me a long time to make the decision to leave, but once I did, I was going to leave at any cost. Despite getting less money (around 15%) I'm significantly happier than at Fiserv. It was more than worth it. Here, I have a chance to actually advance - with support from my manager! As the saying goes, the grass really is greener.

@2csh+1cvhT8hA fair enough. I forget some people have worked at the same company for decades, I would probably be more invested if I had been at the same job that long.
"Not to be that guy but why are you lurking on an ex-employer board then? I've left bad jobs in the past, going on those boards to complain hasn't entered my mind once."
As someone said in another thread, leaving a bad job is like a bad divorce. It's almost impossible not to have grievances. A forum like this has helped me (personally) navigate an exit from the soul-crushing environment I endured at Fiserv.
Your mileage may vary. You may love the current state of affairs at Fiserv.
Smart move. FB has close to 2 million shares and he is fleecing all the 44,000 + FiStuoid clowns still “working hard”
"Good luck and good riddance and yes why are you back here on this site. I give it 90 days and you will be regretting the stupidity of taking a pay cut!"
- . . writes someone who secretly admires that you took the leap for your wellness and hates you all the same because he doesn't have the ba--s to do it, too. and who's also on this site for what purpose? this isn't an HR weekend retreat.
Real honesty here people. ‘I took a 15% pay cut…’. Good luck and good riddance and yes why are you back here on this site. I give it 90 days and you will be regretting the stupidity of taking a pay cut!

@OP+1cvhT8hA - Congratulations! I did the same thing late last year and have zero regrets. For me finding satisfaction and fulfillment in my work is more important than maxing out the dollars made. Now my stress has been greatly reduced and I have a much better work/life balance. Cheers!
Congrats, I am happy for you, it's good to see some good and positive news on here.
