Took client to dinner where they proceeded to lay into me and a co-worker in the most unprofessional manner I’ve ever experience in 20 years. I’m so deflated. Gotta get away from them ASAP.

“You’re fabulous, 100% qualified.. they completely LOVED you and had ZERO negative feedback! But, they went with someone more qualified...” OK, how about just saying they went with the cheaper option?

I’m a seasoned AD and am considering an VP Account Supervisor position but feel like I am losing earned value without having Director in my title even though it’s a VP position. Am I overreacting?

I’m requesting my supervisor to help conduct an informal 6-month review and gather some feedback from people I work with daily in the agency. Any advice on what things they should give feedback on?

My boss is bogged down with EOY work but my first 100 days are coming up and when I started, they said we would do an evaluation then. Is it pretentious for me to put in a calendar invite a month out?
