Hi fishes,
Need some advice.
I'm on a team of 25ppl.
There is one member in my team who takes all the limelight though he works the same as me.
He points out each and everything to the manager and tries to stay in her good books.
I feel my manager doesn't understand the efforts I put just because I refused to go to office for a span of 3 weeks.

Also I'm starting to feel this bcoz many ppl in my team got appreciation and reward points.
But I didn't receive any appreciation nor any rewards.

“International” Accountant with a CPA at a large Asset Manager; 3.5 YoE (manage foreign entity books). I took this job to give accounting another shot, been here just about a year, and I’m ultimately finding myself just as unfulfilled (but better paid) as my last role and absolutely hating Quarter-End close. If I’m looking for consistent WLB (40-45 hrs, no travel) what are my options? I don’t want to sell myself short and pursue IA due to the unfulfilling aspect but all the while I’m lost.

I feel stuck as a Strategy Manager and want to make a career pivot at 35. But have no idea what i should do? Any suggestions, resources or books that I should read to help with my existential mid thirties crisis? I have experience in technology consulting, corporate strategy, freelance consulting and law. Do I go back to being an Attorney, or do I retrain and become a financial advisor or something else?

I just have to give a HUGE thank you to all the moms who suggested my husband and I look into the “fair play” book when I posted a month or so ago about bearing 100% of the mental load of our family/home task management. It honestly completely changed the way we communicate about and divvy up home and child care tasks and has given me the mental space to start enjoying hours of my day again instead of being consumed by never ending mental “to do” lists. You all are an amazing community ♥️

Anyone in PE/VC, what is a good way to describe a manager that “creates” deals instead of “sourcing” them? The client wants to differentiate itself without using cliche wording that is in a lot of pitch books. Seems like a “just do something amazing” request, but I’m at a loss to even provide the partner with ideas/a base to work off of.

After reading Happier Hour (highly recommend as one of the best time management books I’ve read), I’ve been reflecting on my “why” for staying on the partner track.

I would love to hear what your “why” is (not limited to partnership). Thanks!

Not happy in my current role. Projects have been canceled or postponed left and right, I’m not getting to do the work that I was hired for. Been here for nearly a year now and have little work to show for it. Talking to management doesn’t help, I essentially get told to “hang tight”.

I want to jump, but how do I explain my situation to a potential employer? Is it OK to just rely on book pieces from previous gigs?

Feeling stuck.
