If the initial concept is still alive, and the hours you’ve put were used to making small tweaks and word/ visual changes, testing materials etc, I wouldn’t consider it mine.

If you feel like you put enough of your craft and style in it, claim it. Especially if you made it better. There’s a lot more to scripts than the initial idea. Or credit him if you want.

Ask yourself this: If you’d come back from vacation and refused to work on this assignment, would your bosses be pissed? Why? Because it’s your assignment. Why not credit yourself.

How do you handle a manager who has unrealistic standards for your staff level? I.E Newly promoted Sr associate but is wanting you to perform two staff levels above you. All of my snapshots have been at next level or partially at next level from other people. I’ve really looked at my performance to question if I’m not good enough or what I could perform better , or is this a toxic work environment.

Need honest opinion from 🐠. Background: previously a big four consultant in tech consulting. Didn’t like the tech implementation work at all and needed to pivot. After obtaining my masters in data science, I landed a good role that actually uses what I’ve learned. However, this role also made me realize that data science (at least in this organization) has a very low ceiling, and is also highly on the technical side. I see myself eventually wanting to move to leadership/management positions.

Federal MBB🐠, were you given the opportunity to work any commercial projects your 1st year with the firm (if desired)? Had a final round years ago but friend advised me to stop the process given passion was retail. At the time switching practices was unheard of, have the times changed?

I've represented myself in and won several court cases. Spent hours studying state law to craft my case. Got a huge kick out of it.
