A few weeks ago, I got a job at a 3 year old IT startup, specializing in consulting. I already know that it's not a place I want to stay for very long. Since I only started recently, I am still in the 3 months probation period.
When I applied, it was for a junior web developer job posting. On my first workday, I found out that both my title and day-to-day work had changed to something unrelated to web development. I feel like I didn't get the job I applied for.
The work environment is horrible. It's an open office environment. All the offices have a speaker and loud EDM music plays 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day. On Fridays, the music is so loud that it feels like working at a night club. My colleagues seem to enjoy this atmosphere and deem it necessary to keep the atmosphere nice. If no music is playing, people even ask "Why is it so quiet here? Are we the quietest office in town or what?"
I tried to ask whether the music can be lowered or turned off. Since it's a bluetooth speaker and everybody can control it, somebody started the music back up again after a few minutes of silence. I also tried to cancel out the noise using headphones, but it doesn't work since I have the luck of sitting right next to the speaker.
Thirdly, I feel like I don't fit in socially. My colleagues come from a very different background, and I really have trouble adapting.
I want to quit this company and find another job, but I feel guilty about it too. I am currently still in the onboarding process and every day I get taught new things about the work. If I leave now I feel like I will throw all the work done by my colleagues into the water. But the environment itself throws all of my work into the water, since I cannot concentrate properly at all.
What would you recommend me to do? Should I quit now or try to stay somehow? I am in my mid-twenties and therefore I have no idea how this incident will affect my future. I therefore really need your advice!
