Does it bother anyone else that you are expected to keep working on engagements even when you are no longer scheduled on that engagement?

No. That's the nature of the business. If it's just small things, that's expected. A few hours here and there to close things down. If you're committing 10+ hours a week then tell them they need to put it on the schedule.

Drives me up the fucking wall. My manager expects me to drop the clients I'm actually scheduled on and pick up their work and prioritize it it drives me crazy

You can also try to proactively manage this by speaking up when your team tries to assign you tasks that you know you won't finish before you roll off. Sometimes it's unavoidable but at least they have some expectation that the task may not get done before you leave. But if it's just review notes and little things, you'll never get away from that.

The only thing I have a problem with is when they don't give you budget to do things that are incremental.

@pwc2 - involve the manager on your scheduled jobs. Make it a conversation between them to figure it out.

It's been a month since I applied to a Salesforce comms role. I sumitted a writing sample, which the recruiter seemed to like. Last I heard, the recruiter was working to get a meeting scheduled with the hiring manager post Dreamforce. 5 days later and nothing. Is this normal? Just trying to get a sense if this is still fresh. I am still in consideration on Workday, and the role was closed to new applications two weeks ago. Any insight would be amazing! Thanks much.

Been unscheduled for the last month. It's been amazing. The dream ends tomorrow. Sigh.

So I most recently had double inguinal hernia surgery (5 days ago, on July 1st). I'm 5'8" at around 170 pounds, with 9.6% body fat. I weight trained almost every day before the initial diagnosis.

While I believe I am progressing well, there is a depression that exists because I can't weight train or do much of any cardio until the end of August, in that 6-8 week span of healing.

It was my first injury and I have been playing sports/been active my entire life. Can anyone relate to this?
