I'm always happy on projects when my manager keeps in mind we are on the engagement because the client needs help. Never let the client thing you are their bitch.

My last client said that about us too. It wasn't even true...and her direct reports were actually the ones on their phones looking at Instagram during meetings. Frustrating!

I think they just feel entitled to say shit about us because they "bought" us.

*think

Or when they agree to the SoW and bitch about your rate and expect everything done without reviewing the scoped out project plan

This weekend I accidentally sent an email to OC that was supposed to go to the client. I didn’t have the clients email and only had the OCs email, but I still should have double checked before sending. It ended up not being a huge deal bc it was a mostly agreed upon settlement agreement and my senior associate and partner walked me through a follow up email to OC. They were pretty cool about it, but I can’t stop cringing. How do I try to move forward and not feel totally idiotic about this??
