Hi all, just need a place to vent. I'm in litigation and, while I started out thinking I would learn to enjoy it, it's been almost 2 years and I only hate it more with each new day. It's reached a point where I sometimes fantasise about getting knocked down by a car so I don't have to deal with this ****...I know the most logical option is to get out, but the job market now is not great (I've tried, and I have a number of peers who have been searching for a while now too). Has anyone else dealt with this sort of existential dread, or have any advice?

Wow that's pretty fast! They must be high flyers. Or are the promotions across the board?

The reality is a CECA is lining up to take your job if you off yourself.

Yes I feel the same way 5 years ago.
At that point, experienced both a very nasty work environment and a bad breakup.
Felt the same way. Unfortunately, things donít always get better. Iím worse off than where I was 5 years ago.

If you are in litigation, consider AGC as an exit option.
