In many toxic workplaces, people yell to make a point. Sometimes, they even throw things, stomp on the floor, or bang the table. Especially if you're in a place like this, you should look for options to get out as soon as possible. Your physical and emotional safety are the highest priority.
Other signs of a toxic workplace can be colleagues who backstab one another, are passive-aggressive, are dishonest, and are manipulative. The list could go on. There are so many bad behaviors that can cause your workplace to become toxic.
If you find you are working in a toxic workplace, don't wait until you're completely burned out. Now is the time to start searching for another job. Update your resume. Update your LinkedIn profile. And, start networking!
But, whatever you do – keep your new job search a secret from your coworkers. At a toxic workplace, you cannot assume your secrets will remain secret.
