Anyone ever go through a period of time where they feel absolutely utterly unproductive? Things are mildly slow, but maybe not slow enough for me to feel this way. I just feel like any task I do is a waste of time. Maybe it’s just doing slip and fall cases as long as I have and becoming bored, or maybe it’s because I’ve been job hunting for a while and I’ve already long since mentally divorced myself from this job. It’s boring and pays poorly. My motivation is absolutely zero and I’m worried

Any strategies or resources you could recommend for getting rid of the dreaded annual performance review (or at least lessening the dread) and creating a more effective year round performance feedback system? Our review is currently tied to our end of year bonuses and merit increases, so not sure I could get rid of it entirely. This would be for hourly and management employees, all working on-site.

A month ago I received my annual review/ merit increase, which was a little higher than the 3% for market adjustment. I’m still underpaid and not happy. I accepted the review at the time because I needed time to digest it. I still haven’t had a 1:1 with her yet but plan to ask when we do. Is it too late to ask? Any tips for asking for a raise? She’s also giving me more responsibility, more work, having me take more ownership over things her and someone else used to. Im so nervous about asking

I always have to go back and audit my commission pay because it’s never correct. A year ago when I found out that I could actually do that, I was a little bummed I’ve been missing out on that for months . My manager said “well it’s your paycheck”. My first sales job I never had to do worry about getting paid correctly. I’d like to think that companies take responsibility for paying their employees accurately and fairly. Is this a common thing in sales or was I just spoiled that first job?

Is it too late to negotiate an offer that I accepted to go in house? I start in 3 weeks. Gave notice to my firm and they offered equity partnership but I’d rather pass on that. Now I received another in house offer a bit higher than the one I accepted. Is it too late to renegotiate the first offer? The first in house offer seems a lot more desirable to me but the second in house offer might be okay too, although I would not accept it unless they go higher because of some WLB downsides. Thoughts?

Hello Fishes,

It's been over two months now since I've joined ZS and I've not been staffed yet. I do understand staffing takes places as per business needs but this is making me anxious. I've tried to follow up with the staffing team quite a few times now but have been getting the same response (We're actively working on it). Is anyone else going through the same?

I'm a lateral hire AC in Pune. Any input from experienced folks would be much appreciated.
