The most stressful job is the very obvious attitude that staff does not matter. And this is felt all over campus.

Your graduate advisor having absolute power over when and if you graduate. A lot of them are arbitrary and unpredictable, have awful management skills, huge egos, and no oversight. I am not exaggerating when I say there was a culture of fear - out of probably 30-40 grad students in my department (most of whom I knew fairly well by the time I left) and about 20 others scattered in other departments that I knew, I can say that at least half to 3/4 were subject to textbook workplace bullying on a continuing basis.
