Couldn't wait to leave RJ after watching the slow, painful descent of morale and the rise in unethical treatment of employees. My fear was the same as everyone else's - hard to leave a job, even one that you hate, when you've got bills to pay, and there's always that fear that the next employer will be even worse. I can honestly say now that I don't regret the decision to leave RJ AT ALL... not even one little bit. My only regret is that I didn't make the decision sooner! Family and friends are telling me that I look so much happier now... that they actually see me smiling and I don't look as stressed. Pretty sad that I didn't even realize how bad my job was impacting my life!
To my friends who are still at RJ - the grass IS greener!!! There ARE still companies out there that will treat you like a valued employee! ...companies that WILL pay you a competitive salary and not make your life miserable! I wish you all the best!
