I have this feeling of anxiety always running in the background. Any advise to cope with it? 😔 I tried meditation, which helps - but only at the time I’m doing it. The anxiety comes back not long after. It’s not fun to feel like I’m on overdrive all the time. I’m unable to concentrate both on the job, and outside of that as well. Anxiety is situational mainly due to a project that’s toxic. Can’t leave as leadership isn’t letting me roll off for now.

Debating taking a Leave of Absence due to mental health and would appreciate some opinions. Pretty sure I have severe depression, some of which stemming from work. Performance on current project has been impacted by my mental health - think I’d be let go after returning from a LoA bc of it. Either I take a LoA now and focus on looking for new jobs or ride out current project until I can find a new job.
How can I impress the senior strategist I am about to soon interview with for a junior strategy role? The role is opened cause the account is in a place to train and mentor a junior.

Anyone exit to McDonalds in Chicago? I see a lot of MBB move there; wondering about the pay and WLB like for a manager role in their Digital Strategy Group
A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?

I just had an employee tell me they are on the verge of quitting due to burnout- actually going to quit but was told to talk to HR for options (we don't have any in place). The manager wants to keep them as they are one of our best employees. Any recommendations on how to help alleviate burnout when the cause is from customers rather than the company? Is it worth it to let the employee leave and spend months looking for a replacement causing more stress/burnout with others?
