Just got lucky. There seems to be a strong overlap between people I don’t get along with and people who aren’t a good fit for the job.

What do you think he does that keeps him around? Relationships with key people? Self promotion?

Seems problematic that your response to some modicum of annoyance is to wish potential professional and financial hardship on someone

Given that we have to sell work to clients one would think that if the vast majority of your coworkers dislike you then you probably aren't going to be a principal or top seller someday, but alas we just evaluate based on loop feedback and utilization and sales targets.

If you got a bad first performance review (actually bad, so figure a 1 or 2 out of 5, but no PIP and given the chance to improve, and also told it’s fine because first review), and you’re not getting fired over it, would you put a lot of effort into trying to move firms once you’re able to say you have a year of experience, or would you just try to improve your reputation at the firm you’re already at, since leaving after 1 year isn’t generally ideal?

Someone I’ve know since childhood reached out to me last week. She has been struggling with serious health issues for a long time and has been put into hospice because she was denied treatment for so long due to COVID. I went and saw her and I don’t think I will ever be the same again. I’m shaking and I am just so lost. I don’t really know what I’m asking for I just need anything right now.

On my first project - got yelled at by my manager due to missing his expectation of wk1. Manager raised it to project lead then to my partner... partner called and see if I need help. The project is not in my expertise and I’m having trouble getting guidelines from my manager since he is busy with other tasks. I spent too much time trying to figure out myself. 8 more weeks to go. Any suggestions? Do I need to worry about partner’s call? Any advice is welcome!
