Has anyone worked as a contract Project Manager through a staffing agency? How was it? Are you able to work two jobs at once? Or is it very meeting heavy leaving now available time?

I’ve worked at two different staffing agencies. Both were great but it was for 1 specific role at a time. I think a lot of corporate jobs can be meeting heavy given the wfh hybrid environment we live in, but it all depends.

I’ve worked as a contract PM a few times, always for 40hr/wk. I would say some days are really meeting heavy but there’s some fluctuation. I would say you can’t work 2 full-time jobs but you could probably pretty easily take 1 and freelance part-time as long as you have a little flexibility.

So, what would you guys say are the Pros and Cons of being a Project Manager. Asking for a friend.

Wanting some advice. I manage higher up’s close friend and they are not qualified to do the work. I have been trying to steer the person in the right direction for weeks, & they don’t take feedback well and blame others. There was a particular meeting where this happened in front of others & they got frustrated and this got back with my boss and I’ve been told I need to work on empathy. The irony here is in past reviews my strongest feedback has been my relationship building skills.
