Partners - how do you help to communicate with a client who think costs for perticular solution should be 20-30% lower than we propose. Especially when we have provided estimate at vary granular activities. Clients only rational for lower cost is that only way they would be able to convince other stakeholders to fund the program. How do we enable balance here

Do you have someone in your office/group that you just loathe? They’ve only been on good projects with strong project teams since they’ve started. I’ve gone to them for help in the past via a partners suggestion but came to find out they’ve had their hand held the whole time. How do you get past feeling jealous and annoyed because you work your ass off and are supposedly a top performer but still get put on shit projects with no help? Is it really just time to walk? Been here for 4 years.
I have a new kind of disappointed during covid: I was sure my 100 footer client was lesbian and since wfh I learned through virtual conferences she has a husband and a kid...
When presenting brochures or anything with long-form copy to the client, do you prefer to read through the copy as part of the presentation, or just describe what’s going on with the copy and move on? In either case, the clients will always read the copy offline after the meeting.
Anyone else required to put together completely unrealistic timelines?
Upper management's direction is to put together the most aggressive deadlines we can. If we think a project will take 16 months, make the plan for 10 months then there's a chance we may launch in 13 months.
I understand that time to market is important in consumer product goods, but being constantly behind schedule and rushing everything is terrible for the team's morale.
Im currently a designer working at a small startup production agency. Ive had to be a jack of all trades there and learned that I love the project management responsibilities I have rather than doing the design work.

Why is it like pulling teeth getting documents and information from clients? I’m a first-year tasked with managing discovery in a few cases and I feel like I’m walking on eggshells when I’m on calls with the client. I just want to tell them to shut up and give me what I need
Hi! I recently acquired a CAPM and I am in the process of becoming certified with an ECBA, with years of varying experience in a number of industries including leadership experience.

Seeking a boring ass pharma job that is actually a 9-5. 7 years experience in multiple disease spaces, both HCP and patient. Tired of trying to change the status quo. Gimme a client who also understands none of this matters, gives and accepts the bare minimum, and we collect our checks in peace.

Feeling really frustrated @ work. I got my 1st job a few months ago, & while I’m super super grateful...they don’t have me doing anything of importance. I constantly have to ask the project manager for work, & when I am assigned something, it’s design work. Meanwhile, the other juniors here are working on conceptual briefs for big brands. I don’t have a team I’m assigned to nor do I have a partner (which I was told I would have one by the recruiter). CONT...

No poach agreements (i.e., we agree not to solicit each other’s employees) in customer contracts are a no-no for antitrust reasons, right? A customer is pretty adamant that they want it in but I feel like this is black and white. Would love to know if any of you are seeing them in your customer contracts and whether you’re including “unless prohibited by law” type of language to CYA.

Has anyone successfully moved their practice to a new state? I would like to get out of Texas but criminal defense is so jurisdiction specific, even at the federal level, that I’m worried I would have a hard time building up a practice with no connections.

I’m a new associate working for a well-known defense attorney in my state. On one hand, I’m thankful for the opportunity to learn from one of the best, but he also excoriates and belittles me for my mistakes. Any advice on how much it tolerable? I am here to learn and advance my career but he can be pretty nasty. (My mistakes are no worse than you’d expect a 1st year associate to make, in case you’re all wondering if I’m a major screw-up who deserves it) I leave work feeling a foot tall.
