As a Senior, how do you deal with an A2 that is seemingly incapable of communicating? For instance, disappearing for 5+ hours without saying anything when working on something time sensitive, not doing assigned tasks over the weekend when the rest of the team is working weekend, constantly misses team meetings, etc

Reach out and ask them if everything is okay. Ensure that they understand the expectation by discussing via phone. Also, make sure your expectation is in alignment with what’s been told to them. Once the expectation is established summarize by email and then from that point on email communications (for documentation) and phone as a follow up (for development/compassion).

Document every instance and bring it up with your director/their RL. We had similar issue and now they are on a PIP.

Yes, I would say in pandemic world first approach with empathy, an open mind, and a willingness to communicate. Have a call. Especially while remote, you never know what they are going through.
They may be going through difficult times but not have a strong enough relationship to bring it up. They may need to switch to part time, go on short term disability, etc. The most important thing to me, and always the first step in problem solving, is effective communication.

How are you communicating your expectations? Perhaps these deadlines or the sense of urgency is known to you but you haven’t clearly communicated your expectations?

Yes they’re aware of the urgency…we are in FDD and tight deadlines are the nature of our work haha. Can’t just log off and worry about something tomorrow in FDD when the exclusivity period your client signed ends in a few days

Interested to hear suggestions

I am a UX designer and have spoken with a potential client who intially wanted to redesign the navigation and landing page of their site. They showed me analytics saying only .35% of users open the main menu (most access different pages through Google search and then leave the site) so it's not worth the time to redesign. I see a lot of growth potential here, but they don't see the value in good nav if users don't already use it. How do I show them the value of good nav? Should I just let it go?

4th yeah here. Most likely moving to a different state in 2 years for my husband's fellowship. Recently made it into the L&E area. I will find out at the end of 2023 where exactly we will be moving. Not sure how to best prepare myself for this transition. Don't know if I should try to get a fully remote job as soon as I can given my state does not have reciprocity with any states. Worried about taking another bar exam and being jobless for several months. Anyone been in a similar position?
