The things they expect from us are not in the realm of possibility and yet they keep insisting they get done. They don't care if it's possible or not, but they want it done. When something doesn't get done - and it's always a 'when' and not an 'if' because it's impossible to get to it all - they have the gall to yell at us and threaten our jobs. I would give anything to have some of them do what we do for a few days, just so they can get a taste of our workdays. Every single one of them would run for the hills.

The environment and those who created it stink. Leave em high and dry. But most importantly be strategic about your exit. Quit/walk away at a time that you’d be needed most. Whether due ti staffing or a project deadline.
They did it to you, now return serve.
Think of Billy and Beau
How dare you question your superiors! Obey! Submit! Comply! :)
Exactly, keep working your azzes off for the unrealistic deadlines they set; without your input! That is the Truist way, brought in by SunTrust!
They call yell and threaten all they want. Right now there are 3 job openings for every 2 job seekers.
I work in Deposit Administration, and my boss has no clue what I do on a daily basis. We had several SVPs take early retirement. I was promoted to replace 3 that left. The workload is insane and I am burned out. My boss constantly calls me to review e-mails she is sending to management because she has no clue what to say or address. I'm leaving after Christmas to get out of this hellhole. I'm tired of all of this and know how all of you feel. I'm lucky I can afford to leave, but many aren't. I'm not going to give a month notice, I'm out of her the day I quit. Sorry, Bill, but you couldn't care less!
It'll going to collapse under them as everybody leaves. I already see a vicious cycle of overwork and burnout from the voluntary retirements. My team's had no luck filling a vacancy with multiple candidates wisely avoiding this shitshow.
I have to wonder if they do start firing people if they'll try to use those impossible goals to fight unemployment.
That’s because they’ve never done your job.
They were hired at a Mgt level, took Mgt training that instructed them Never to befriend or socialize with minions, are too lazy to learn what you do, and may have sociopathic tendencies that prevent them from feeling empathy but permit them to do ugly things..... including threatening your livelihood (when they know you can’t afford to call their bluff).
Go in Peace. Your family needs you to not ruin your health.
There are jobs out there. Maybe not exactly what you like, but you don’t like this job either, it’s not going to get better, and it’s almost a guarantee that it will get worse.
Employers are looking for good workers. Consider taking a pay cut, moving, re-tooling your skills. It may take a year but Plan now for your next career step..... you do not want to be there long term anyway.
