  • I wouldn't change anything until you've already found a job with the things you're looking for. If there's no room for growth then the dress code really shouldn't matter.

  • It's easier to find a job when you already have one, and they're hard to come by right now. Look fr a new position before you let go of the one you have.

  • You can set up your own retirement plan. Go to a place like Edward Jones and have them help you plan for your retirement.

    But like everyone else already said, look for a job while you keep this one.
