Anyone here struggling to get new meetings? A thread for posting what services your company offers and maybe we can help make some connections to get into new accounts.
Hello everyone, appreciate the feedback and your thoughts. My company did not allow work from home, so I took fmla for 12 weeks. Upon returning, my roles have changed to chemical regulatory, vendor commissions and some account management. I am worried about my career, should I stick in chemical sales and look for another job or regulatory is lucrative field. I want to stay near technical field. Is it a boon or a punishment?
Looking for feedback: In a leadership position with responsibility to direct sales strategies and enablement for a product category. My issue is that my new boss, who micromanages my every move, gave me a slap on the wrist for “breaking chain of command” to speak with my VP. Someone I already have a relationship/rapport with trying to get honest feedback on an initiative. Any suggestions on handling corporate politics with my boss? Previous boss allowed me to speak freely with all leaders.
Anyone willing to share their sales leadership incentives based on team goals? What’s the norm here?
Has anyone seen or discussed this Petition for SHRM must support Black Lives Matter & the LGBTQ community? I’ve grown increasingly concerned and disappointed in SHRM’s lack of vocal support for employment protections for LGBTQ+ and black and brown workers, especially as a black woman in HR. It seems like SHRM is overly focused on what is absolutely “legal” and not what is right. I’m of the opinion HR professionals must not only be “legal” but have a relevant and compassionate stance
I’ve been struggling on whether or not I should talk to my boss about one of my assignments. I am an entry level HR analyst with one year of professional experience and she has tasked me with leading a strategic agency-wide project. This entails procuring a consultant, directing work of our senior analysts, leading a cross functional team to implement the project, point person, managing project timeline and deliverables, updating our policies and procedures to integrate the project, etc. To me, this is senior level work and should be done by the more senior analysts who have experience in this area. I understand it can be a great learning opportunity but feeling nervous. Thoughts?
What HR ticketing system do you use and what important aspects did you consider when looking? Our company is looking into ticketing systems and this will be our first time looking. Right now I’ve seen Zendesk, Workday and Happy Fox. Has anyone sued those before?
Do any managers do more than just manage and lead the team? Currently I manage the team, manage accounting, handle HR, handle marketing such as documents and emails, provide all of the technical support, and sell. My boss still works from home and only looks at the phone report to check the productivity. They refuse to look at my reports or complete activity logs. Because I have 4 hours of no phone activity daily, my boss believes I am not working hard enough. Cont.
Do recommendations on LinkedIn provide any value to potential employers? Do recruiters look at them? What do recruiters look at on a LinkedIn profile?
I need to approach a manager who has received several comments that there is perceived favoritism. They have a team of hard, strong workers who have been with the company for years. A great new employee was hired several months ago with a strong technical skillset. The manager constantly praises this employee in front of the rest of their team, and consistently says comments like, "(New employee)" is the best person EVER to do this task!" making colleagues feel like their previous work in successfully getting that task done for years is unvalued. Any advice for how you would approach the manager, or how you would advise the employees who are submitting complaints?
Would anyone here know where to turn to or can share credible compensation data for the medical devices industry, specifically engineering roles? I’ve googled extensively but the results can often be competing and questionable on number of data points. Appreciate any help!
I have been working in HR since 2004. I have a bachelor's degree but it is not in HR, it's in a medical/technical field. My entire career in HR has been on the job training and I have worked besides people with HR degrees doing the same things they do. What extra skills do you think your HR degree gives you that you wouldn't have without the degree?
Heard PWC is going to significantly reduce bonuses. They pay better than others. The talk is they want to be aligned to other firms
My manager finds every reason to not give me credit (rather take it) as I’ve been longer at the client. Is there a winning here since he will write my reviews. How can I minimize the friction?
Has anyone taking a senior project manager role position in industry. If so, how did you like it. Good or bad move?
This is a serious post so serious responses only please. This whole corona situation has made me think I don’t value human life as much as I thought? I see the death tolls increasing daily and it doesn’t make me feel any type of way. I figure people die all the time from all sorts of causes... so I just don’t feel very sad or worried about it... I’ve also considered if I were to die from this, and that doesn’t really scare me either. Is there something wrong with me? Can anyone relate? :/
Just used my iPhone to set my DVR to record the CNN Eighties special on the technology revolution as it was beginning to talk about VCRs and the beginning of time shifting television.
I’m on 2 projects. Been working on 1 more and doing nothing on the 2nd. I’ve been dragging out my work so I get more time to study at work while seniors do everything. Is this understandable as staff?

Had a callback interview at DC big law about a week ago, a few hours before Covid-19 escalated things. Should I assume I did not get it or that it is on pause? Appropriate to reach out again?
Has anyone been successful with dialing down to a reduced percentage workload (e.g. 80%)? I know the option exists but am wondering if it is worth it, or you end up working 100% for 80% pay?
