Howdy all, long time no see.
So I'm in another bad spot with work - took a role at a large HCM company and it's been a god awful grind. Have genuinely hated most of this year and felt like I was not told the whole story around what this job is when I took it - even turned down other offers because I thought this logo would look that good on a resume. I've been in it about 11 months now and desperate to get out. No one in my territory wants to move forward and the deals I get into go nowhere since it's easier and cheaper to stay with your current provider. There is no good reason to move to a new platform in HCM unless you're insanely unhappy with your current vendor. And then the implementation is an extreme nightmare. Last but not least they changed comp plans for new folks so my starting quota is double what it normally is and if I were to hit my number I'll make 50K less than I made last year. I was told I'd easily pass $200k...
My problem is my previous 3 roles were only 1 year each thanks to Covid layoffs, downsizing, acquisition layoff. I'm basically closing barely anything in this role so if I don't quit I'll most likely be fired sooner than later. I need to get out but scared I'll look awful to recruiters even though I've hit quota everywhere I've gone and was even promoted before the layoffs last year.
Am I going to be ok to start applying again? My mental health has gone downhill massively thanks to this role. I really need to be somewhere I can actually win and don't feel like I'm bothering people with extremely dated technology and methods.
I know that I need to start applying but hoping some other savages have been in my exact spot and can offer some encouragement to the homie.
