No, just a series of warnings that they will be bad

15 years at JPM with various conduct issues, 5 years at Barclays with more of the same. Yes, heard the same every year. Even without conduct issues, it’s the same story every year. It’s called ‘managing expectations’

‘Series of warnings’ Ok - so just same standard line that I’ve heard every year for the past 20 years in banking... Nothing new here, move along...

Including the explicit notice that comp will be impacted by conduct issues... doubt you’ve been hearing that for 20 consecutive years, and curious as to how you’ve apparently missed the memo...

How big is the jump from xDR to AE? Currently crushing quota finishing my 1st year as BDR in enterprise software (12mo+ cycles with avg deal $500k) Want to make the business case for promotion before end of 2nd year. I was a management consultant before and feel confident interacting with senior level DM’s but would be fresh to outside sales, negotiation, closing prospects, etc. How can I prepare for the jump and set myself up for success as an AE?

Hi there! I need some guidance. HR and global leadership rolled out some amazing new initiatives like not starting until 10 am on Mondays, no meeting Fridays and required 2 additional summer days a month. The problem is, my boss refuses to comply with the initiatives. He constantly scheduled meetings before 8 am on Mondays and after 7 pm on Fridays. He also doesn’t let me take time off. Should I go to HR? I’m really not one to complain but I’m tired and extremely burnt out. Thanks for your help!

Recently started at a new firm. Was very clear about the role prior to starting (presales & sales) - it is written out in my offer letter. The new firm has run into delivery issues and is trying to tag me into delivering a program that is unrecoverable. Not what I want to do with my life. Direct management is aware that this is not what I want to do and wants me to take one for the team. Escalate and ruffle feathers, or just walk out? Been at new firm for about a month.

Hi, I’m an analyst at a Big 4 firm about 3 months into my first project and feel lost and utterly confused.

Not looking to get my hand held, and never afraid of hard work, but this project really sucks in my opinion. Really wanna get to a new project but trying to figure out if it’s me or the project? Anyone ever been in these shoes?

Had an interview with a TINY firm. Pretty much one partner and one associate(that i would replace as they are moving). Partner said PY they made 900k. He then says if you do 20% of the clients for 180k you tell me how much you want of that 180k. Okay so how do i say i want at least half of that when i have 1.5 years experience.... current associate said he made 40k year one and 50k year two...soemthing doesn’t add up???
