CD: I want you to take more ownership of this project and really lead the campaign.

Also CD: Says my ideas are bad in meetings. Undermines me at every opportunity.

Just another day in an agency 😎

This CD needs to take responsibility to help you improve the work, not embarrass you. When I get lackluster work from someone, I sit them down and discuss detailed feedback. Or if it’s so off and time is tight, the idea just dies. To undermine you in public when their role exists to help make your work and your abilities stronger is WRONG.

I know this might not be what you want to hear, but maybe your ideas aren’t great. Either way, you’ll have a much harder time getting better with that kind of boss.

I would look to find another manager somehow within the agency or start looking. It’s not going to get better.

I hate my job. I'm being bullied and harassed by my bosses. I've confirmed my firm doesn't have any policies against recording (non client facing) work conversations so I just record and take notes on every call. Interviewing with other firms and companies. Anything else I should be doing, other than keeping my head down?

What are the day to day responsibilities of a PM at a design agency? Is it a chilled role or not? I’m trying to get a better understanding of it.

Guess I’m trying to figure out what the role would be like if I left consulting to be a project manager full time.

I strongly believe new hire onboarding should not sit in the HR/People Operations space but should sit in the HR Coordinator/HR Generalist space. As a new hire, they should be able to have a confirmed point of contact especially during their first 90 days and People Ops should not be that point of contact unless there’s system or access issues.

I’ve been applying for jobs and internships in my field (looking for jobs in media production, social media, music, entertainment) for months with no luck.

Held for sale question. If a property meets held for sale criteria and is sold in the same Q, it would’t appear on the balance sheet for that Q (since it’s disposed of), but would you have to show the real estate held for sale amount in the prior period included in the balance sheet? So 03/31/21 and 12/31/20 comparative BS and property sold on 03/03/21. It is excluded from balance sheet at 03/31/21 but is it reclassed as “held for sale” for 12/31/20 presented period w/ added footnote?
