    Please don't think that all OR people are this way. A big part of any toxic environment is management-this stuff has to be nipped in the bud early. It's possible but you have to have a manager with big cahones(think I spelled that wrong). Sometimes, you have to shop around for a decent place to work. I went through 3 ORs before I found a good environment.

That said, if your mental and physical health are suffering, cut your losses and find another place to work...

    I agree, it absolutely has to do with mgmt, or lack thereof. This place, for years has had no solid mgmt, looks like it is going in the right direction, but I do understand that even the best mgmt team cant change people overnight... it takes time. Alot of time. Unfortunately, this place is the only level 1 in my area with a training program. Yeah for me.
    They even have MANAGERS who are TRAVELLERS!!!!!!!! This is a new concept to me.
