Of course. Everyone on my team is super smart. But I'm sure thats not the case with every team.

I'd say 50:50, but I find it more interesting that people like saying their colleagues are smart to people outside the company, Implying that since they work with smart people, therefore they are smart compared to average joes on the street.

No

If you're talking just my partner and myself then yes. If you mean other people in my company then no.

I can deal with people who aren’t as smart, but what drives me nuts are the people who don’t care as much as I do.

Last week team dynamics took a turn for the worst (even tho in each retro the team always commend each other, you would think team work is great). Team members get agitated with each other for being slow. Team members coming across rude and brash (the same ones are difficult to get hold to offer support, time is money is what someone said💰, the craziest was the client accidently sharing her whatsapp screen, commenting on people's feedback to what she was presenting OMG 😲 How was your week?

Client calls cuz he wants to transfer his account to a IRA. Asks abt the process but he's wasted my time w BS questions before and not my job to transfer his account. Compliance issue if I ignore him?

I’m due in 3 weeks and my manager keeps giving me new work / new deadlines / putting more and more on my plate. I keep reminding her (yes her…and she has three kids of her own) that I might not be able to get to it before I’m out since my baby hasn’t shared her schedule with me…but then my boss just says something to the effect of “all the more reason to wrap it up sooner!” … anyone else dealing with this? Any ideas?

Hi! First time working with a larger company - suggestions on handling pronouns at work?

I’ve worked with smaller agencies where it was easier to bring up. Now I’m on a larger team, talking to/referencing people I’ve never met. I’m less concerned about my own pronouns and more concerned about how to make sure I’m using the correct pronouns for the people I work with.

I’ve been structuring sentences to avoid gender specific pronouns but would love to hear suggestions. Thanks!

My boss the general manager is setting me up at work. She is saying all this stuff about me that is not true at all. But when I come into her shift or come into my shift after hers nothing is done for me. A lot of the prep is not done. And she complains about me not doing the prep. Stuff Is still dirty. One day she left the grill on. Etc. There was another manager there training to run another store and she said I basically do a lot of the work while she doesn't do much. So she stood up for me.

When I ask my manager for advice about how to do something, he usually just tells me I'll "figure it out yourself." But when it comes down to it, he doesn't help me at all by doing that—he just makes me feel like an idiot. And then when I do figure it out myself and bring the answer back to him, he won't even look at it! He'll just say something like "Oh yeah, thank you," and give me another assignment.

I recently reconnected with my former employer who had terminated my employment without any clear reason about 6 months ago. The CEO and COO still weren’t able to provide any clarification as they hadn’t spoken to my former manager about me. They told me that they had no issues with me personally and “weren’t sure what plans my former manager had for her department”.

I became involved with a similar org since I’ve been unemployed and they suggested that I apply for one of their roles. (cont.)
