Completed first project. Client seems happy. PM provides very little positive feedback saying i need to improve on a lot. Thoughts?
Wanna get on a project in Kenya. Anyone know what LGBTQ life there looks like in real life? I did do my homework and know about the (il)legalities of being gay but RL is always more nuanced.
PM 🐠, is there value-add in bringing on a ‘freelance’ or ‘project’ based Associate Product Manager (mostly at a startup or nonprofit)? I’m currently in a strategy role, but looking to gain tangible PM experience by essentially working for free as an APM. What are some reasons such orgs would be open to bringing me on vs not?
M&A disclosure schedules - can someone explain how these work? Does the client always prepare the first draft and we just review to ensure everything checks out? Is the client responsible for charting all material contracts that fall under the dollar thresholds and then we just do an assignability/change in control analysis of those contracts? I’m being tasked with leading this work-stream but I don’t quite understand the process!
Any investors have experience in pharma? I have a client looking for Angel investors and their minimum is $250k+, as an investor what are you looking for? TIA
Getting a text message from your client at 1am and freaking out bc you think there's an emergency... Turns out he just wants to say hi.....#femaleproblems
I know we have a commitment to the client and are expected to work as long as it takes to get the job done. But why don’t we write and sign contracts that are realistic? It feels like cheating
I have a boss that always canceled meetings with me including performance reviews. I’ve been trying to get on his calendar to let him know I’m leaving but just getting more of the same. All of my work is in good shape but needs senior eyes and not left for junior folks to handle. Some of them are high profile and client-facing. How do I close this chapter without burning bridges?
My 23rd fall tax season and I still can’t get myself into the next project/deadline until 9/15 is fully buttoned up….Today I’m part sloth, while still attacking the problems that arise.
Fried my brain at ultra this weekend... I am in no way ready for any client interactions this week

I found out that I will be a tax loan staff for a client. Is this generally a good experience to have?
My Senior keeps giving me (A1 newhire) vague and conflicting information for what they want me to work on. I just got moved to this client a week and a half ago to help out with filing, and am expected to go off a simple look at X section and figure it out. Just stresses me out a ton and feel like I cant assist with anything legit. Ill ask for clarifications but it just seems like im going in circles. Were supposed to be filing next Friday and its not looking up.
Is it wrong to be happy that a deal fell through? I know it sucks for the client and other parties involved but my schedule just opened up.

Anyone ever been on a project so dysfunctional + toxic that they've requested to roll off? How did that go? Asking for a friend lol.
Design time. Challenge number 3 coming your way in the form of a more meaningful topic this month, centered around tomorrow: World Mental Health Day. As designers, we put so much time into making something cool, fun, or that makes money. But we should also use our design powers for good. You up for it?
This guy I’m dating wanted to have lunch with me today. He came over to my place with his favorite childhood meal from his favorite local deli (a greasy cheesesteak with peppers and onions and home fries 🤢) and wanted me to try it for lunch. Just looking at it made me feel sick to my stomach. I have a very sensitive stomach, and I can’t really eat fried or greasy foods. I tried a bite, but I couldn’t eat it. He immediately got offended, ended the date and left. Did I do something wrong??
What is it like talking to an external recruiter who reached out? Is it like a normal interview or more casual? First time - help! I’m not actively looking but want to keep a good relationship in case it sounds better than I thought or for future opportunities.
Better to be a big fish in a small pond or a little fish in a big pond for MBA apps (I.e. superstar at B4 or mediocre/below average at MBB; metaphorically speaking ofc, ik the B4 is technically bigger in terms of size but you understand the point in terms of competitiveness)?

Any insight on getting MBA from mendoza as far as prospects for transitioning into a post-mba strategy consulting role? It’s ranked outside the top 15 but from research seems like it still sends plenty of grads to top consulting firms (not MBB)
I worked at a large insurance defense firm for 4 years out of law school. I really enjoyed the work itself, but the hour expectations kept increasing and I was getting burnt out. I decided to try a new type of law and have been at the new firm 3 months. I have way less responsibilities and none of my own cases. I’m worried this was a wrong move/too far of a step backwards. I know I don’t see myself here long term, but I’m not sure how long I need to stay to avoid looking like a job hopper—help!
