Recruiter: I’ll get back to you this evening(yesterday) latest in the morning with the decision. Time: 3pm EST next day. Unofficial result: recruiter MIA; therefore Rejection. I’d be surprised if she writes back with a positive outcome after this hr. Simply because if it was positive she’d share the news by now and start the process for us both to get paid asap. Am i wrong in my assessment?

Posted a few days ago about lateraling to a firm to work for a rain maker and having been put on a deal with him alone (first deal at the new firm). Subsequent to the scolding emails we finally managed to almost close at 18:00 on Friday only to realise that the numbers didn’t add. The same document that I screwed up before led to one entity paying the wrong amount. I’ve never ran a deal alone as a first year and the partner has been MIA for most of the deal. Long story short (cont in comments) -

Is it not appropriate if I want to switch to another cleaning lady because she constantly changes our schedule due to family reasons? She canceled on us last week for family plumbing issue, and she is MIA now telling me her father passed away. I know it’s hard to deal with all those things but we also need cleaning. She was always a 30min-1hour late for the past year and half, but she cleans well. And I don’t know how to comfort her except adding a bit more tips.

How do we feel about a summer saying they’re looking for projects, reaching out to you, then going MIA for over a week when I asked them to set up a call to review days ago? I emailed him Friday being like ??? as he didn’t even follow up saying “hey sorry this is late.” This is my first time assigning work to a summer and I’m just baffled because it seems like a very bad look to do what he did (and I would never as a jr associate).

I have a close friend who now lives in a diff city bc of the pandemic. She’s always been not so good at communicating via text & phone but wonderful in person. With us living in diff cities she’s gotten so bad at texting, like a month or so on end going MIA. Now she sent a flurry of texts being like yes let’s hang ASAP now I’m free! How would you guys respond? I love her but want her to be respectful of my time as well & not just go MIA and pick up as if nothing happened

Here to vent 😒 made plans with a guy who’s in law school (initial mistake? 😂) back on Tuesday to meet at a dog bar with our dogs tonight, but he’s been MIA since sending an enthusiastic-sounding message Wednesday AM, which I responded to Thursday. I also sent a “hey just checking in to see if we’re still on for tonight” this AM and radio silence. Doesn’t he realize he’s wasting my time and since time is money, he owes me $ for time wasted, which is $250/hr according to my firm? 😂 What gives?

Just got into a huge fight with SO and wanted some perspectives. He (31M) and I (30F) texted last night while he was hanging out with his friends, and I asked him to text me whenever he gets home as he lives in a bit shadier neighborhood. He said he will as usual, but went MIA. I was so worried I spent all night trying to reach him and his roommates, until it turns out he passed out until this morning. He calls me this morning and says he appreciates me waiting but I should not wait.. (Conti..)

Any tips for managing new analysts on a project? In the past I have worked with motivated analysts that are able to own tasks and we just sync every couple of days on what needs to be done. Currently managing an analyst that is always MIA and doesn’t get tasks done... tried giving more creative leeway at the beginning, now we are down to me having to micromanage every task (really not my style, but otherwise it doesn’t get done!)

Started a gig recently and got paired up with a FL AD who is constantly MIA for over an hour at a time or more.

They swear they aren't on another gig or anything (which is fine if they got work done), but I'm over it. Gig is another month and it's a solid opp, but not sure what to do.

Client aiming to close a deal on the last day of the working year. Partner is pretty much MIA. There’s a lot of work to be done and I’m only in my first year. I’ve done the ground work, but need him to check I’m not missing anything. The partner is barely communicating with me let alone our client and the other side. Part of me just wants the partner to give me full permission to run this myself (it probably won’t be perfect, but it’ll get done especially with guidance from the other side). Cont

Doing the same work, but likely more hours, and unknown leadership support. TC: $180k Obviously the jump in TC is huge, but I really value WLB.
