Sorry to be a Debbie Downer, but no, it doesn't always get better for everyone. After 8 years of misery I have decided to take a long break and explore other professions. I have had 4 jobs during this time and only one wasn't INSANE. Literally everywhere I have worked has had some permutation or mix of piss poor management, blurry ethics, high turnover, rotten morale, weak protocols, weaker staffing practices, lawsuits against them, failed inspections, violence in the workplace, total lack of training or orientation, no mentoring, and favoritism/nepotism or racial segmentation. And before you say it was me, or the places I chose to work, I've never had a poor reference, been fired or written up, and every employer I've had has been a large, well-regarded hospital, clinic network or government public health entity. This industry is BROKEN, PERIOD, and only followers and the truly (and admirably) detached are rewarded.
