Make sure you’re not being forgotten about at the firm you work for. Often loan staff can be looked over for promotion because you aren’t working with or reporting to the core team and all your reviews are dependent on what the client says about you

Yes I have - and I agree with ASA 1; ive learned to make sure to track progress/status updates to keep the engagement mgmr informed; otherwise there’s no way of knowing if the client makes you work 70 but you were only expected to do 45s. Also - make sure you are savvy with firm resources (people or guidance) In case you run into roadblocks

What is loan staff assignment? Did you mean lone staff requirement?

Nah. They literally will lend us to other companies like a rental car. That’s a good analogy for how you get treated on those engagements too.

How do you approach giving feedback to your boss who is not great at managing, but became your friend? I’ve been in this situation twice.

I’m still good friends with both, and while I no longer work with them, I still wouldn’t bring myself to tell them.
