Has anyone else experienced these? Are they signs of burnout?
I am currently a substation design electrical engineer 1.
I am making $71k a year from a large Consulting firm.
I have a bachelors and masters degree in Electrical Engineering. I have passed the FE & PE exams, I am an EIT, and I have a year of experience outside of school. Three internships as an engineer while I was in school.
I feel like I am underpaid and would like to know the thoughts of others. I feel undervalued in comparison to what other companies over that do the same work.
I’ve long disliked the term ethics. Definitions of ethics all refer to morals. Morals are very personal and vary a lot from person to person, culture to culture. Law is how we as a society express our preferences and impose rules and restrictions on ourselves. So the question should never be about whether companies can be ethical. What does that mean? One person thinks eating meat is unethical, another thinks it’s perfectly ethical. Companies should focus on complying with the law.
Anyone else feel very lonely all the time? I feel like it adds to my general exhaustion 😞. Hard to find people who want to genuinely hang out before doing the deed.
Always had this stupid idea but will throw it out here for more perspective!
I know labor unions are not allowed but if we collectively raise our voice and ask for better compensations and/or work life balance will it really make a difference. I know talent surveys happen but find it falling on deaf ears.
Deep down I really want Deloitte to come out of this mess they have created starting 2020.
I want to feel the pride of having this name associated with my career again…
Why oh why do "remote" positions for US employers require FTEs to physically live in the United States??? I want to know the real reason.
I usually send emails with title “Please respond IMMEDIATELY” to my leads and they seem not to like it a lot. The thing is, I’m helping YOU to make profit, so as long as I bring money to you, why couldn’t you listen to me and DO WHAT I SAY?
Can we stop tattle telling to get ahead?
Left big4 deals advisory for industry earlier in the year for a technical accounting & sec reporting role in a fortune 100. I enjoy it but still miss the big4. Can use some advice on what I should consider before going back (am I being silly second guessing my decision) and based on what you guys have seen, how difficult is it to boomerang? Left as a M3.
I earned my degree in Human Resources Management about 4 years ago while working as an Corporate Relations Analyst. I am now a Workforce Management Analyst but I desperately have been trying to pivot into HR since obtaining my degree. My biggest concern is not suffering a pay cut to start at the very bottom. My soft skills are immaculate; very quick learner. I truly cannot afford to take anything less than 70k. Any suggestions?

What are marketing senior managers making? I’ve been with the firm for a while but feel like I’m below the average and not getting rewarded for tenure.
I say I left my firm because of pay, but I left it because of how black the place made me feel…( think confusing me with the only other black woman). I have been practicing for a little over 6 years and I’ve felt this way throughout my legal career. I’ve been mistaken as a defendant in multiple courts (even in suits), voluntold to be the face of diversity etc. So I have taken a law adjacent job (v happy), but I am scared that it’s a mistake to take a break from legal practice. Thoughts?
Hi! I work in healthcare as a business consultant. I've been in the managed care space for 10+ years (payer&provider).

What do you do when you have an anxiety attack at work? I had one today and had to ask a coworker to give me a hug in private and we ended up kissing. Surprisingly soothing.
I left an agency where I’d been working with a toxic boss for almost a decade. One year into my new job it’s clear my new boss is just the same. New boss doesn’t listen, undermines me, blames me constantly, regularly picks on me in front of coworkers while they pile on and treat me like persona non grata. I can’t sleep. I choke back tears almost every day trying to figure out what I did and unsuccessfully trying to avoid disapproval. Am I just unlucky, or is it me? Am I inviting this behavior?

Deadlines can induce anxiety attacks for me. I worked through the weekend and just woke up to a (nice!) email from the client asking about progress. We're not going to hit deadline. This caused an all-out anxiety attack at 6:30 am and now I have to somehow get myself together and work.
How can I have a healthy relationship with deadlines? That "good and done is better than perfect" saying is nice, but expectations are very high. I just want to stop feeling this way. Therapy helps, kind of.

Hey. Anyone have experience with paranoid skitsophrenics with severe anxiety that refuse medication?
the company i work for has been taking a toll on my mental health. my HR even asked whether it’s my job or my “personal issues” that are affecting my mood, and even suggested i get on antidepressants
I hate work. All of it. With a passion.
I wish there was some sort of #TimesUp equivalent for mental health. Half of the ppl at my agency take adderall bc the demands are so unnatural. Feels like the industry is abusive and needs reform.
