Discussion on: What are signs that you should quit your job?

Possible points from my experience:

  • Lack of confidence in boss technical and management skills. Incompetent bosses will trust the most convincing people, not necessarily the best workers.
  • Lack of confidence in the boss human skills. I once saw my boss at the time requesting that a disabled coworker undergo a test to verify wether he was fit for the job. Needless to say this switched on a huge red light for me, and I ended up quitting the job shortly after.
  • Lack of cultural fit with coworkers and environment. The feeling that you wouldn't want to have a beer with any of your coworkers.
  • Boring, repetitive uninteresting work. Long and boring days waiting for something to happen (happened to me as I was working in a bank).
  • Lack of recognition. Project success routinely credited only to part of the team (usually analysis/design).
