I’m a new CSM (9 months) and I work at a company that doesn’t invest much in its CSM team. I’ve been struggling because as time goes on I feel more and more like a token hire. We have no play book/structure, no CSM tool and I’m current organizing all 95 of my clients on spreadsheets while also handling presales trials with a salary under 50k.

Long story short: I’m searching for mentorship or to be pointed in the direction of a good course so I can help the clients I do have while I’m here

Which would you say you're strongest in: ML, SQL, R and Tableau? Just curious about how other professionals see themselves.

Started a new gig in January and the work is just ok…now an agency I’ve always wanted to work at is calling. Problem is, it’s in the city I’m currently in, and I’ve been wanting to move to a different market for a while. I’d get to do more funny stuff at this shop that wants to bring me on. I can kinda do that where I’m at now, so it does feel a little like a lateral move. Should I stick it out and keep trying in this city or make a move to a bigger market?

I'm struggling with burnout vs boredom. I left my last PM role due to crippling burnout. My current job was a godsend. Less responsibility and a better support team. Initially, I hung in the background to recoop mentally, but as my burnout faded, I realized my workload was too lite. I asked for more responsibility and received it, but I'm breezing through without challenge. Simply put, I'm bored. Should I look for a new role with more complex projects or stay and take the no burnout win?

In the current company I work for, it seems like in order to get promoted, you need to not only do what's within your job description well, but also do things that are past your job description so that they see your interest & understanding of other avenues, and THEN they'll promote you to a management role. Is that the standard way of getting promoted in all fields? Doing your job plus more until youre promoted to just do the 'more'?
