Help... I have an analyst on my account who is the project manager.... 2 years at firm.... but, often doesn't produce an agenda (making me scramble) and then on other calls doesn't take notes? Or share screen? She also schedules calls without asking resulting in time wasted and me asking "did you ask if this time worked for everyone?.... and she didnt ask... and they didn't accept either). We've already talked to her about her role - setting up calls, taking notes, etc. 😑🤯 wtf......

Currently working as a Data Scientist in consulting. Struggling, because as a Data Scientist you have little to zero human interaction, which my personality certainly craves. Can you share some steps/guidelines on how to become Project Manager in Data Science? I have chosen Consulting in hopes that it will provide faster promotion into tech mngt position

Role at a smaller shop is really asking for it all. I've been going back and forth with a recreuiter about a position at a smaller creative agency, when I've been in big media agencies my whole career. It falls within the realm of Project Manager but the job description is literally 30 bullets long that encompasses new biz, copywriting, account mgt, sales, strategy, creative direction, and finaly project mgt. I'm trying not to see this as a red flag, and more as an opportunity. Any thoughts?

Fishes who are/ were staffed on engagements in PMO role: What do you do when you are supposed to be a Project Manager but there is no "project"? I just started on new engagement. There may or may not be a "project" eventually, but there isn't one yet. All my client wants now is my help with managing day-to-day activities and tasks and has no interest in "brainstorming" on what this hypothetical project might entail. Meanwhile, my Eng Partner is demanding to see a detailed project plan.

I've seen that being a project manager is a common exit, but I'm wondering if that's a dead end career wise. Can you pivot to product managment, something in operations, internal strategy group, or just boomerang back to consulting? For context, I'm interviewing at a bank for a PM role and wondering what my options are, assuming I land the gig, if it turns out I don't like the bank / team. Any insight or perspective would be greatly appreciated. TIA!
