Are you killing it at work or is work killing you? I’m Brian Banmiller on Business.

There are some managers who believe a pressure cooker environment with everyone constantly on edge delivers the best results. But according to the job resource site ladders dot com they are wrong. Instead, cutthroat work cultures are less productive because employees are not engaged. Companies with a high number of disengaged employees have forty percent lower earnings per share and a higher turnover rate of fifty percent. If you’re spending your days in a job like this and not sure about leaving, there are eight reasons to make up your mind. First these environments overwork people. It’s tempting for managers to work the best people harder, so they frequently fall into this trap. Now, instead of being rewarded the best workers think they are being punished. Next, there’s no empathy. Does your boss see you as a person and care how you’re doing or just focused on how much work you do? For more reasons to pack up your desk go to It’s just not worth it. Brian Banmiller, CBS News.
