How do you handle feeling bad for inconveniencing juniors? I’m a third year and got tasked at 7 PM last night (Saturday) with handling an emergency, which included staffing first years. I emailed all first years and asked for help if they were available. None of them were free, so I did it myself. It was a very late night and I’m frustrated at the partner for making me staff them when I have no authority. And at myself for being passive in my email asking for help.

Question for creative/marketing leaders who go from big picture strategy to detailed project management: how do you switch between both throughout the day? I need time to think and get into a flow before strategy and once I'm out of the strategic mindset to PM, I find it difficult to get back into it, vice versa. How do I oscillate seamlessly between strategy and account management?

Finally went back to the office today and went to lunch with a couple colleagues with a client we are working to retain after the relationship partner retired. Great lunch, great conversation. As we were wrapping up client asked me about my due date (I am very obviously pregnant), so I let him know - Sept. 26. He proceeded to let me know he knew I had some fun at New Year’s… like what? Can we not? I just laughed it off bc how else do you respond in front of colleagues and a client? Blech.
I wish that I was as fearless about standing up for myself as I am at defending our work to a terrible client.
Hey fishes, I joined Deloitte on Dec 20th. So far, I have completed compliance trainings, few courses on udemy and getting KT for my project. What can I fill on my impact statement?
My boss and agency have continually given me more and harder accounts than my direct counterparts. I’m also confident that I’m paid less with similar experience Recently my boss made an odd comment about a client, stating she worked a lot because she is childless and didn’t have anything better to do. I’m also childless and my counterparts have children so this didn’t sit well. How do I address this while still being an advocate for mothers? Everyone should have a work/life balance.
When you go talk to the client about support not tying and through the conversation it is clear they have no freaking clue but they end the convo w/ “I guess I’ll just document this for you” 🖕🖕🖕
