I do. I had my best experiences on BD projects. Thats were I actually got to work with MDs and SMAs that showed how much they actually knew (as opposed to how MDs are on projects). Plus, it is really valuable to learn how to frame a sale, go through the sales process, etc. Org design is great but I personally got the most out of BD projects.

What are some other nice arts culture hobbies inspired by India?

EY leadership has no boundaries. My husband is working in a project where they are in critical phase of testing and delivery of the system. His leadership calls him at 6am in the morning for status updates when they know for sure that he was up till 2/3 am working. I am asking him to put foot down but it seems he is the only one with the required knowledge. Venting ends. Thanks for hearing me out.

Didn't get promoted and the more I think about it, the more upset I become. Had a good year, helped fill in gaps, took on roles to help lead internal initiatives, led/managed teams to success, and worked looonnnggg hours to the point of burnout. Leaders also know how much I was working. I didn't expect a promotion because I had low expectations for my firm, but I'm still pretty bitter. Should I ask why? Was I too naive and ended up giving too much? Or is this a reflection of my work/value?
