There comes a time in the lives of some academics when they wonder whether they are a happy fit into the their department (or similar professional unit). To quote from an article in STATUS by Meg Urry, "Many of us have worked in unpleasant environments. What happens? You spend a lot of time thinking about the sources of friction, complaining to yourself and to others about the bad things that have happened, trying to calm distraught colleagues so they won’t leave."
Yes, there are.
