I work in sort of a family office advisory shop where we do transactional work for corporates -- currently doing sell-side work -- been here for almost 2 years now and while it started off decently and I got along well with my hierarchical superiors, now they basically can't stand me. This is both from a professional standpoint and social.
Professional meaning: they shit on my work output all the time, they never want to answer any question I have, every question I do ask is stupid and I should just google it, I'll admit I make some mistakes sometimes (not that our MD really gives a single fuck) but they are always nasty about it instead of just calmly saying "hey this is wrong" they make it seem like such a big deal. I will say they still keep me busy although what ratio of the work I do is "busy work" versus actual product is debatable sometimes. But at least whenever I get it in front of my MD he's happy with it.
Social meaning: The two of them will be chatting about sports and I'll try to join in and offer some of my input only to get either: 1) Ignored or 2) Told to shut up and do work. And this is contrasted to a year ago where I felt a stronger connection and we shot the shit like you'd imagine in an office setting with cool dudes.
Bonuses are coming up too and I'm obviously a bit worried I might not get anything. Just not sure what to do, as I haven't really built a strong skill set here to just interview and peace out (0 mentorship obviously)
+ no formal training) I try to be stoic in all areas of my life but the constant negativity and "hazing" (which is the way I try to frame it in a positive light) definitely wear on me now, I'm really abhoring the thought of coming into work in the morning whereas a year ago I actively looked forward to it.
