I’m a 2nd year and effectively just ran a deal on my own with the partner. It ran smoothly, I got praise from the partner, and the partner said that they trust me to do most stuff without their sign off (so no need to check with them in future unless I’m really unsure). Generally there is one or two mid levels above me, and I find it way harder to do my job when they are managing me. They like to keep me on the bench, get me to do minor tasks and don’t let me take responsibility and ownership.
So finally got my standing desk set up. Got a birch butcher block from Homedepot,stained and gave it a few coats of poly. But its been a few weeks and the smell of the poly is strong when I'm near the desk. I can't stand it, does it eventually go away? Anyone have expertise on this? Tia!

Paris to Chicago American Airlines, flown by Pilot David Bowie, no kidding! What an Air-Space Oddity!!
Did you cave and give your kid a device way before they should have one/before their peers because you're a "techie" family?
How hard should you actually work in consulting? Obviously we have utilization requirements so we work long hours but I’m tired of giving 100% of my brain power. Is there any benefit of working harder? IMO there’s an incentive to work slower

My Director just chewed me up and started taking over as a lead on my project... 3 weeks in of having no clue what I'm doing, working 10 hrs+/day and multiple sleepless nights, I have to say I'm so relieved. Is it a good idea to take a step back and let my Director run things?
Going through one of the phases where I’m hanging on by a thread (and I’m not even frequently traveling right now!!), ugh. Preschool parent visits, rsvps to birthdays and school events...

Hi all - I’m working as a Jr AE at a remote agency. Before full-time at this agency, I interned there for 2 years and often did pro-bono work. I love my company so much, but I often feel stuck when it comes to salary and growth. The salary is minimum wage and every time I ask about a raise they agree I need one but never get around to it. Today, I was offered a position at another agency as a remote AE with more than double my current salary. I didn’t seek this job out but don’t know what to do.
