Found out project is getting extended again in a few months...is it bad to ask to roll off bc it's been over a year and you're tired of it? How do the managers on here feel about that?

Yeah that how i feel. But it will be a new initiative so it will be a new skill set to learn...but I just want a change of pace and scenery

Do people seriously get pissed off at someone looking to better their career after a full 12 months of loyalty on a project?

It also depends on what skills are needed for the new role, how "replaceable" you are, how dependent the client is on you. I don't know you situation, but you should be able to get new skilled and experiences even at the same client for multiple years if you're working with your manager to develop your career. But if you really want to roll off, you definitely should offer to stick around to train up a new resource.

I rolled off of a project at the extension date bc it was outside my group. I asked really nicely and was told it would be permitted so long as I had another project (in my group) to roll right onto

As a manager, I understand when someone wants to roll off, especially if they've been there for a year. Your career is in your hands and if the roll isn't helping, it's time to move on. Just make sure you don't have a unique skill set that they can't fill elsewhere

If you plan to leave your firm and your manager asks you why you're leaving, what do you say? I have a legitimate non-bridge-burning reason unrelated to comp or simply "big tech is better" reason.

But I'm not sure if I should bring this up. Should I just be vague and say "looking for a new chapter"?

It really bothers me that I'll never have the confidence men do, and I think this will impact my career.

I know these are not only qualities of men and I can develop them too. I'm just frustrated & venting because it feels like I'm trying so hard just to achieve the same goals. Anyone relate? Any wisdom?
