The good news is that everyone has had that one tough project. I always think of how could it be improved next time. Each project is unique with new challenges to overcome. Personally I take notes of tough situations or areas of improvement so next time we can perform better as a team.

Before advising them, are you giving them the support they need?

Positive attitude to teammates. Never blame the client. Go above and beyond and you’ll gain the respect of your peers for the next engagement

But it’s ALWAYS the client’s fault. 🤷🏻‍♂️

I think a lot of "tough" comes from the unknown when you are new. Operating in the gray and doing the best you can is all anyone can ask for. The one thing that is inexcusable is not asking for advice or help from others on your team or firm. You are not a top gun, we've all been there

Keep going. Struggle means you are developing new skills and this will be an element of every project.

Grit and learn what not to do in the next one. No one likes a quitter so stick with it and you could be part of the team that turns it around. Learn everything, all the time, from everyone

On the other hand, I’m cynically preparing myself for the chance they’re just using me as a prop. Getting my rejection speech ready.
