You’re already thinking about getting a new job.
Without even noticing, you’ve already started thinking about quitting. You find yourself checking job openings that would allow you to quit obsessively and dread going into work. These are clear signs that you’re unhappy where you are and that it’s time to move on to the next. This applies to any job position, not just for Product Managers.
Communication within the company is bad.
One of the most important aspects of a Product Manager’s job is communication. Without communication within and between teams, it is difficult to create a successful product. If it is difficult to get in touch with other departments or coworkers, and there seems to be no efforts to improve communication at all, it could be time to move on to another job.
The work environment is toxic.
Being in a negative and toxic work setting can make a job unbearable. This doesn’t refer to receiving constructive criticism that you don’t agree with. It refers to being ridiculed or mistreated constantly. Being in an unhealthy environment daily can negatively affect your mental well-being, and work should never come before your mental or physical health.
At the end of the day, trust your gut. If it feels like time to find a new job, then it probably is.
