YOU (to ECD): Seriously? C’mon, U’R better than this... Reminds me when a CD instructed me to do something that I told him was wrong. He got pissed and told me to do it. The GCD walked in later read the copy and said what the hell is this? The CD looks at me goes “WELL????” I looked directly at him and said, “don’t blame me b/c she’s here. You told me to do it.” Fucker’s face when white as a ghost. GCD chimed in all diplomatic “well whoever it was — ME: Him GCD: Just fix it. ME: Sure

I hate that diplomatic bullshit. “Well whoever it was” my ass. People need to know that their leaders expect everyone to take responsibility for mistakes, not blame the person under you. The CD is shit but I don’t like how the GCD handled it either.

@ACD2 — he wasn’t my CD. He was a CD from another group. He knew he was wrong (yet of course wouldn’t apologize — which was fine). He went out of his way to be nice to me after that, which I reciprocated. This was a number of years ago. I had heard that he was a backstabber and so was thankful that it happened while I was in the room to defend myself... I’m a firm believer in owning up to one’s actions and for him to try to blame HIS decision and directive on a junior is inexcusable

Wondering what is your take on this. 3 months into my 6 months internship in a family office, the investment manager asked me if i want to apply to their portfolio analyst/business controller role with the possibility to move to investment associate in about 2 years. Upside being i don't need to hustle for another internship or full time job, but how does 2 years middle office look on my resume? Guess not great, don't want to get stuck if there is no headcount at the end. What do you think?
