Constantly changing organization structure and leadership. Expectation to work 10-12 hour days, every day, and then still answer emails into the night. Unrealistic expectations about billable hours when company has you travelling 20 or more hours a week. Failure of leadership to provide direction, support efforts, or provide tools or training for you to do your job. Although the pay and beni's are good, I am not sure that they make up for the highly stressful environment. There is no work/life balance and it is soul draining.

Lack of leadership and direction. Normal office politics - some groups worse than others. Lack of decent hardware, expected results with little information and decision making.

No access to certain systems to help clients. Have to rely on other co-workers to assist with calls you can't answer or know nothing about. Management slow to assist when problems arise. Work environment is super stressful, lots of pressure to get as many calls a day as possible rather than taking the time to assist the client you're helping properly. Each call is timed and there's pressure to hurry up.

The work. It was mentally draining and repetitive. It paid well to make up for the stress, but IT work was not exactly my passion.

The most stressful part was the amount of work needing to be done and it affecting ones work-life balance. Increased workday hours and putting in on-call time on top of that.
