So I am stuck in a toxic work environment that has become evermore toxic. I have two deals, each more than $150k, that need to close before I can finally leave. Performance wise, I am doing well and I naturally prospect more than anyone else on the team. However, the culture is so damned toxic at my current workplace and the organization is slowly falling apart.
It's not even the fact that the very late-stage deals that are keeping me here that gets me, it is that mindf-ck of going "please God, if you are real, do not put another massive deal on my plate for me to work from start to finish for months". It's like in any decent workplace, as an AE I'd love that.
However, when you are in a workplace you desperately want to leave, it is knowing that if one big deal comes your direction that you work, you are going to be stuck here for months again. If you leave or get terminated? Someone who is "one of the guys" that barely does any prospecting or work inherits it and closes something you worked hard to get to that point.
I have been an AE for under a year, already at my number, and my god it is the one thing I hate about this role. Being an AE in a toxic work environment just hits differently than being an SDR in one.
