The last 2 seniors I have worked with have been incredible team players, but are extreme workaholics. However, prior to them I had worked on 2 projects with seniors I dreaded working with, but my WLB was great. I am in a bind bc I feel myself really burning out trying to keep up with these ppl who seemingly never log off (esp. in quarantine), but I also remember how much I disliked work in the latter situation

Mostly communication/ coaching skills. Often would be assigned tasks with ambiguous directions and when I would go to them for questions I would find out they did not fully understand their own ask/ had provided me incomplete materials that I would’ve needed

Do the workaholic seniors expect you to also put in the same hours? I’ve worked for people that are workaholics. I assumed I needed to stay as late as they did but it turned out I was wrong.

No. You can rent happiness, though.

Yes! I have an amazing senior who’s probably getting promoted to manager soon. She knows her sh** and gets it done ASAP, doesn’t need to put in long hours, while going over things as necessary. I think I got lucky

Has your workload increased, decreased or stayed the same over the last few weeks? My manager has l taken things off our plates so that we can focus on our families and health. Extremely grateful 🥰

Anyone else try to hit their 401k limit by April? We're close to bonus season, and it feels good to not have any deferral space left...

I was on a multi-agency Covid-19 Zoom call with about 20 people from the LA area recently, and the host had us karaoke Bohemian Rhapsody as a tension releaser, and it was surprisingly fun.

I feel like Facebook needs to be removed from “FAANG” status and replaced with Salesforce, SAANG, or some other arrangement of the letters. Does anyone else feel this way?

What’s the average salary for an AD in NYC with slightly less than 2 years of experience as a junior? And yes I’ve seen that massive spreadsheet but while it does say years of experience, it doesn’t say if that salary came along with the title bump or additionally as a raise after.
