Employment

Employment is a relationship between two parties, usually based on a contract where work is paid for, where one party, which may be a corporation, for profit, not-for-profit organization, co-operative or other entity is the employer and the other is the employee. Employees work in return for payment, which may be in the form of an hourly wage, by piecework or an annual salary, depending on the type of work an employee does or which sector they are working in. Employees in some fields or sectors may receive gratuities, bonus payment or stock options.

If you do not have a physical injury or a handicap that would prevent you from observing the correct form of prayer, which is standing up, then you are not allowed to pray sitting down. 

Whatever the environment may be, you must be able to take breaks, in which you can find an empty space to pray in. If the situation is very bad, then you must think of leaving that toxic environment so you are able to express your religious freedom and do you wajibaat in the correct form. 

And Allah knows best

For example, it being in open area, being careful of what type of conversation it is, avoiding lustful gazes, etc.. 

Another thing that could be applicable to certain situations like this is to avoid accusations or suspicious thoughts from others who might see you, but this would depend where you are and what is culturally appropriate in the place you live in.
