1. There's an abject1 lack of communication 缺乏沟通
Improper2 communication means that people are often scattered3 or confused about expectations from leadership. Projects may seem complicated, stressful and difficult to execute either because there aren't enough hands on deck, or there are too many people who want to take the reins4.
2. Gossip culture is prevalent 八卦文化盛行
In addition to spreading false info, gossip can lead to cliques5 forming, which consequently means there's an exclusionist culture in place. People can lose their jobs, arguments arise more quickly and the office vibe becomes more Mean Girls. Not good.
3. There's no room for growth 没有成长空间
We all do our best work when we know it counts for something. But if you're working for a company that's stuck in their decades-old routine and is resistant6 to new ideas, you can easily feel stifled7. If you can't pitch new ideas or improve upon your skillset, that may be one sign. It's also good to take stock of the people you work with and evaluate whether or not they've grown. If you notice that your cubicle8 mate has been in an assistant position for three years, yet she knows the business in and out, you may just be working for a company that doesn't support progression.
4. You can't create a work-life balance 你无法达到工作和生活的平衡
If your boss demands that your job come before your boyfriend's birthday or Dad's visit from Chicago a la Devil Wears Prada, then yes, you're in a toxic9 workplace. Of course, it's important to give your all from nine to five (or whatever your prescribed work hours). But if you're constantly receiving emails, text messages or phone calls during your days off, and can't make plans with your loved ones because you may have to hop10 in a meeting, it's time to reconsider.
5. Employees are unmotivated 员工没有动力
If managers are not communicating, not giving their employees room to grow and not compensating11 them appropriately for their hard work, odds12 are, morale13 is low. That can mean none of the old employees are willing to help new hires assimilate, everyone only interacts with members on their team and no one is willing to step up and do double duty during peak seasons. This may happen not just because there's no incentive14 to go above and beyond your daily duties, but also because everyone is already juggling15 so much, there's literally16 no room to add anything else to their plates.
6. There's high turnover17 人员流动率很高
One tell-tale sign that something is wrong within the workplace is when employees come and go at breakneck speed. With so many people (especially millennials) prioritizing their wellness and mental health, no one is going to want to stay in a place that disrupts that. So, if you find that your co-workers are dropping like flies, it's wise to analyze18 the culture.
