Do I stick with a toxic workplace or move on?


When I joined my current company nine months ago, I was promised that  a promotion to sales executive would soon follow.

Unfortunately, the boss who hired me has since left the company and the whole business is in upheaval. I have more or less abandoned my hopes of promotion but I am also frustrated by the lack of dialogue with management, who are telling staff one thing but doing another.

I am tempted to extricate myself from a bad situation but I am also conscious of how unfavourable it might look on my CV. Is it worth sticking around for a bit longer or should I go?
