To ask if you would stay in this job???

I started a new job about 5 months ago. It seemed the perfect fit for me and the jobs don't come up very often as they are quite specialised. I'm on a fixed term contract for 2 years.

They have sent me on a few free training courses that will look good on my CV and help me in the future to advance in my job and have offered to put me through a qualification free of charge which isn't cheap and I've never heard of it happening before.

However, the atmosphere in work is awful. The management team are at each others throats, three employees have left in the time I have been there due to bullying or stress

Day to day I'm doing very boring mundane tasks. It feels like I'm being dished out all the shit jobs that nobody else wants to do and want to gain experience in all areas. My managers are a bit cunty and will just be passive aggressive over it if I bring it up with them.

Would you stay? From the point of view of the training courses etc I'm going on its great but day to day I'm bored shit less.

I don't think I would, no. I've just resigned from my job today after only 3 months. Life is too short to be unhappy in a job that you hate.

I was just about to go along the 'life is too short...' road myself

Couldn't hurt to see what alternatives are out there, unless it's the kind of industry where that kind of enquiry would get straight back to your managers.

How long would it take you to complete the qualification they've agreed to pay for - and is there a clause that you'd have to pay them back if you left within a certain time of completing it?
