Ever have a week so bad that you want to curl up fetal position and cry? I am strongly debating requesting a transfer from my project. How does one deal with a mean client counterpart?

This is gonna sound like weird advice but, just stop caring. As long as your work is air tight the rest shouldn't matter. How sad must a persons life be they have to me outright mean to another person they work with. I had a nightmare of an MD yell at me constantly. Just brushed his attitude off and did my work. Partner loved me hated him.

Been there. Caused a lot of stress that it exacerbated my TMJ and I had to get a night guard. Start documenting the issue and then let your project lead/project manager know. For me it resulted in my project lead discussing the issue with the client lead. The client lead stepped in, I was told I'd don't have tobe in the same room alone with the client counterpart and all future requests were done via email to avoid the outright aggressive and demeaning personal confrontations. I know sucking it up I the normal route but homeboy threw a chair, don't let things escalate.

Have been there. It was because of my manager. She eventually left the project, but i know for a fact that the stress of the situation gave me medical issues. Sorry for you. Hang in there. D1 is actually right. There are literally psychology articles written about how to get revenge at work without getting caught and they follow something a lot like that

OP you gonna need to separate your emotions from your work / job. Changing proj is the short term cure but what if you run into a similar client next time? Sounds weird I know bc work is supposed to give you sense of achievement and satisfaction. BIG LIE. Get yourself a "call option" for your job-related emotional state, i.e. If it's a happy day at work, it's a happy day, or else it's just one of the many normal days in our lives. No biggie.

I don't know E3- there is such a thing as work place abuse and high compensation (which is not the case for all of us) only goes so far. There are legit lines to cross, which is prob why the recent HBR cover article is "how to work with a toxic co-worker." You're right that we're not humanitarian workers getting shot at in Juba, but there are people who abuse their power and their underlings to the point where it causes medical issues. We should be able to go to work without it negatively impacting our health, to an extent

Honestly, start to look for other projects. This is not worth it no matter what career reasons why you think that you need to stay. By looking for other projects, you could regain a sense of control, which could help with coping with this situation. I'm angry for you!

Hey everyone! I’ve been an SDR at my current company for 8mo and an opportunity in the AE role came up but my boss (male) said he wanted me to have more experience before promoting me. Offered me a CSM role at the end of Q4 but then I found out he is promoting the other SDR (male) who has 4 months less experience than me and has by no means proved himself. So long story short, I’m pretty upset about the blatant favouritism and looking to move. Anyone have any CSM or AE roles open??

Hi folks I got a call from a UBS recruiter for one of the jobs I had applied for Pune location. Unfortunately, the call got disconnected due to poor network at my end. And she did not call back.

The call was from this generic UBS HR number +65 64958000. I only caught the first name of that recruiter - Pooja/Puja.

Could someone let me know how to get back in touch with them? (I tried searching on LinkedIn but could not find the recruiter)
