Does anyone feel like this thread is a miserable contest where half the posts are just exaggerations by associates who want to feel more important than they actually are?

This pup survived a long and stressful week this week with the Texas crisis. We finally have power, heat, and water back. Fills me with joy to see him sleeping safe and cozy and warm tonight. I love him more than life. ❤️

Thoughts on how to maintain your standards with your direct reports without creating miniature versions of yourself Is documenting expectations the only way? Interested in alt approach if avail.


Hey everyone I’m a new graduate with a bs in industrial and systems engineering currently looking around for full time opportunities. One role that caught my eye is sales engineering. I wanted to ask for opinions on this career path in terms of pay and career progression. Does it have good exit opportunities? What does the career growth typically look like for this role? And if anyone with a similar education could tell me what career path you chose and why! Any advice would be much appreciated!


Ever gotten into it with a creative teammate that had a toxic attitude?


Poll. Your current job pays you $135k. Respectable company. However, your manager sucks. Isn’t approachable, judgmental and no training or guidance provided (industry is very niche). New projects keep coming at you with not enough time to focus on all of them. Also have 8 direct reports but they behave like children and don’t always come through in terms of work. Benefits and time off is excellent. Exceeds expectations performance is required by the manager. Would you stay or find another gig?


Which is the worst social media app in your view and why?


I call bullshit on "micro aggressions"


Seems to me this is how it works: the government put people in cages and paid Mck to take the blame. Isn’t the ability to point fingers the whole point of hiring these firms?!


Anyone use Facebook and boost your post to invite people to a dinner seminar? What’d you do and how’d it go? A bunch of free meal people or some solid prospects?
