A pregnant lady on my team is really underperforming. What should I do? The client presentation is coming up, and she just went MIA for 2 days. I messaged her and email her with no response. She didn't even upload her financial model. Otherwise, I can try to close the loose ends. I wanted to let my manager know, but I don't know how to make it sound correct from HR POV...

Maybe a silly q but - it’s my first year here and I’m wondering if BL ever does early office closes the day before major holidays. At my mid, we’d close at 2 on the Weds before Thanksgiving, for ex.

Not asking who actually has to work hard that day (I know there are assocs. who will have to work 99 hrs that day, and partners who will be MIA all week). Just wondering if there is ever an official ‘closing early’ policy. Is this is childlike fantasy?

Chicago esp., but all insight appreciated!

Am I wrong to be annoyed? Senior associate has been MIA all week and left the team to cover 4 major briefs/court deadlines on his cases (not mine) that he had not started. At first, he was only texting me saying he wasn’t coming in, which made me the middle person between him and the managing partner. I could tell by his texts he was struggling with something mentally, he was letting his personal life interfere with work, and lashing out. I started a MSJ response cont. in comments

My recommender has been totally MIA and doesn’t respond to texts. What do you do in this situation? I thought it was someone I could count on, we were close enough to hang out outside of work and had a good relationship. Don’t know why they would act this way…

Keep in mind I recently (5months ago) switched service lines. I have two projects im taking over from a high performer who is being rotated off. He was MIA this week. Unfortunately him being MIA coincided with both the projects having fairly complex deliverables due. I did my best to help out - both senior mgrs kinda took it over. Should I have done more ?

Am I a needy gf if I expect my bf to text every 3-4 hours? Often, he is MIA for 12-20 hours because he is “concentrating” on his work. I work long hours myself but text every few hours. He wants me to understand because he is really busy and that’s how he gets stuff done but not sure if I should put up with such

My CD is pretty MIA 90%+ of the time, but still expects all work to come via them before it can go for review.

While that's pretty standard practice, the constant disappearing act leaves me in a pretty shitty position. I've found myself drastically cutting down my creative time to make sure there is ample time for approval, only for it to be sitting in their inbox for a week + with zero feedback.

I've tried explaining to them the impact this bottle neck is having on me but nothing. Help!
