Ever been promoted at your firm while on a project and you have to be rolled off bc your billable rate is higher than what the client has budgeted? Or does your firm find this as an opportunity to renegotiate the SoW?

Hi, I’m an analyst at a Big 4 firm about 3 months into my first project and feel lost and utterly confused. Project is outside of my skill set and interest and I feel like I’m in too deep and don’t care enough to eat shit for this project. 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?

I am curious how other inclusion teachers are being utilized when the school is doing remote learning. I find that I am sitting in the zoom class and have very little opportunity to contribute. I am having discussions with my teachers on ways that I can better support them and the students when remote.

I am really tired and I think I’m burning out. I love my job, my account, and my team (for the most part). Working from home with 2 kids didn’t really hit me until I had to start picking up slack at work. I had found a good balance. But now I find I’m short with my older kid, house chores have gone undone, or work suffers. I had a review recently and I’m well received but the window for a raise or promotion has passed and they will look into it during the next open window (continued)
