    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Grassroots Campaigns full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of my closest friends are former directors and canvassers from my office. You'll meet good people who can be friends for life.

    Cons

    I've just felt completely depressed. I've been unable to spend time with my significant other, my friends, even to call my family. Work is consuming my life. My boss makes me feel extremely uncomfortable. I find his anger to be explosive and unprofessional in a workplace. I personally feel that his behavior towards young women in college is alarming. The past few months I've been completely isolated from anything... that brings me joy. I don't feel like myself, and I'm unsure of how I will be able to continue here, while my concerns about my mental health are growing and growing. Sleeping about 5 hours a night and working up to 6 hours on my days off is making me feel distant and cut off from reality.
