I think everyone has their limits. For months, they have been gradually adding more and more work to my plate. I have finally come to a breaking point because I am too tired of wearing multiple hats. This used to be a company where I felt good working but now I feel totally squeezed. I know I'm not the only one. How much additional work besides your regular job do you do?

I hear you! I’m criticized for not prioritizing while being criticized for saying no to things. Well… that sounds like a no win situation.
The need to wear multiple hats at Honeywell is what lead to my burnout there...when I had to assume the order sold was overpromised/undersold and that the materials ordered where probably wrong, I had to be the QA for work Band 4s couldn't be bothered to do.
So, while they raked in bonus and incentive money, I got to clean up their mess and get the a-s chewing for the failure of my coworkers.
Next job that talks about "multiple hats" will need pay me like multiple people.
I would love to wear multiple hats.
Unfortunately, the only hat Honeywell is offering is a dunce cap and it is one per employee. Would not want to run out.
I was a red shirt honeyweller until monday.
Literally, I have many honeywell shirts.
Remember the company store?
All the people leaving, including many that I truly respect. So many reasons.. one outcome --> promotion and advancement.
Then I had to congratulate a colleague who earned a promotion in another company to a position I aspire. I've been flat told to my face that position is out of reach to me by VPs in honeywell.
I have more work than is possible to do. And now even more people quit. So there is even more work. Then you give up and look. There’s a lot of great jobs out there. Take a look!
