Another salesman told a client their ad campaign would be ready next week. Today our supervisor told me to help him, but he has hardly even started the work. Is there any way for me to point this out without feeling like a jerk

Hmmm...is this person busy on a few other projects? There might be some outside factors contributing that you don't know about.

Marketing is all about teamwork. Sometimes it's not fair, but I'd suggest helping him and letting everyone know your contribution

I’m starting grad school in the fall and want to take a 6ish week break of freedom using the PTO I have versus quitting and losing my benefits for that time and getting paid out for my PTO. I would quit right before school starts/when I run out of PTO. Has anyone done this? Would this make me at risk of getting laid off while on a PTO without a project? Would that even matter? I’m going to grad school for a career change if that makes a difference. Thanks!

-steering things toward her own promotion over our company's agenda
-people in my dept (mostly white) are visibly uncomfortable and reluctant to interrupt or contradict her (black woman)
