I have a problem finding my way in corporate settings.
I now started a new job a few months ago. I soon discovered that the team I'm managing is massively understaffed - in a team of 4 people we are expected to deliver the same results that teams abroad need 10-13 people to deliver (and they are still very busy). That's simply unsustainable, and I'm already on the verge of burnout.
Discussions bring nothing. I'm told my bosses "understand" and we "should keep discussing the topic". Then nothing happens. I do follow up and I'm told, they understand and talking about issues is good again.
I feel more and more resentful towards my employer who expects me to work unspeakable hours and think more and more about quitting.
What can I do in this situation?
The problem is that's not the first time this is happening to me. My impression is most employers are like this. My previous job was one where I was told: "if you are paid for 8h should be working 10" by my boss. They paid me for 10h/day and expected 14. Afterwards I always regretted sacrificing my life for that.
I'm in the EU.
