Employee quits toxic job without notice after being treated poorly and makes the company regret

Sometimes, in a work setting, the best way to let people see your worth is by walking away and letting them handle situations alone.

Stories about toxic work culture are no longer news. It happens everywhere and people try to stand up against it whenever they can. However, more often than not all you can do is rant because that's the only thing in your control. In a story posted on Reddit, u/__brea wrote about her toxic boss and how she decided to quit her job with no notice whatsoever. The post has since been deleted.

The employee starts the story by saying that they work as an HR assistant in a company having 650 employees. You'd think a company this big has a bigger HR team, but here - it's only the HR assistant and their boss, the HR director. The employee earns $25 per hour, while the boss earns six figures. Despite working at the company for almost four years, the employee hasn't had a raise since 2021, with the previous raise being that of a dollar per hour. To not be able to make a decent sum of money after doing all the work this one employee does for a company of 650 people can definitely be frustrating. They also said, "My boss is hardly here. I would estimate she works 25 hours per week while I regularly work 40-55." She further added, "She also gets to work from home routinely. I was told I cannot because technically it's only for high-level execs."

You'd wonder why exactly was the employee dealing with such toxicity at the workplace, right? Well, the reason is that they had no degree. While they did compensate for the lack of degree with an abundance of experience, the fact that they had no degree made them believe that this was all they could make. However, the employee was recently offered a much better paying job where not only would they earn more, but could also work from home thrice a week! Under their current employer, they are doing the work of at least 3-4 people each week, with no scope of a raise. And that's why, they decided to quit without notice. 

The employee has decided to leave their job on the coming Friday, with no notice. They know that this resignation would be tough on the boss, owing to the year-end projects piling up as well as a Hawaii trip she (the boss) had planned. The employee said, "I don't feel any remorse after countless times of being told 'There's no way you can take those dates off, I'll need you here.'" The employee also added that they are the only person to know how the company's HR software (HRIS) works. No one else tried to learn it either because they were relying on the employee.

The individual said that they posted their story on this platform because they wanted to tell everyone that employers need to treat their employees with respect. They ended their rant by saying, "Because we can just walk out and leave companies struggling." A lot of people validated the employee. Some also sent tons of advice, one of which is from u/JimmyMcPoyle_AZ. They said, "This is wonderful. As others have mentioned, do not tell them where you're going. Don't update LinkedIn, don't announce anything on social media."
