Blowing up in job

Hey guys, currently working at an asset manager. 1st year went well and I had positive feedback. 2nd year started and I feel as though expectations for me ramped substantially and I feel like I’ve been behind the curve ever since.

I’m in this spiral now where I’ve been making errors or not performing the best, which has resulted in me getting negative feedback and then that only further negatively affects my confidence and ability to operate at work. It’s gotten to the point where I’m getting yelled and it’s just become tough to grind 100 hours week after week only to just get yelled at.

Not sure if I take things too personally, but I don’t know how to get out of this rut of constantly struggling? I’ve considered leaving to find a better cultural fit since I know for a fact that I don’t do that great with yelling, but my confidence has taken a massive hit and I don’t know how to build it back up?

Any advice would be appreciated - thank you!

This isn’t a professional sport, no one performs well if they’re always being yelled at..

Leave. This is no longer the 80s or 90s. I absolutely hate people who yells whenever they are angry for whatever reason. Just because you are yelling doesn’t make your point any clearer, and there are a thousand better ways to bring your point across in a better way, especially in a professional environment.

Yes. Yelling is a failure for a person to articulate themselves like an adult. It’s a fault of their incompetence, not yours.
