Working your life away for a company that doesn’t value you is enough to make any employee walk away. And good for them! There are so many jobs in the world. At some of them, you might be valued for what you bring to the table.
This employee was working their “most challenging job” ever as an assistant general manager. While working at an event venue, they took on a role with long hours, and often worked 50-60 hours every week. But since the OP, u/tokyoflex, enjoyed the work and liked their bosses, they didn’t mind the tough hours. Then, the company’s GM advised them to get out of the job, and the OP agreed. If a company is trying to push you out, there’s no reason to stay, no matter how much you like the gig.
The OP got an especially satisfying ending to their time at that company, and best of all, they didn’t even do anything wrong. They did everything exactly as their company outlined, making for some impressive malicious compliance.
