Dealing with hot flashes at the client site. Hard to explain why I have to get up and leave meetings but I feel like I might suffocate if I stay in the room. How do you explain this without TMI?
A male MD on my project is always cutting off a female team lead. He is incredibly rude and condescending to her and not to other members of the team. Is there anything I can do being so new?

How do you guys handle bullshit client adjustments? Do you ever push back? Or do you keep your mouths shut and adjust colors, fonts, sizes when they’re based on the opinion of someone with no design background at all?
Anyone tried CareOf or Ritual vitamins ? On a coast-to-coast travel project and have limited control over my diet .
Thoughts? Ofc our PTO should be approved and respected but I think there are obvious times where you shouldn’t try and take PTO... particularly if there are crucial deadlines that had been communicated prior to someone planning out their PTO. I think it’s more so about not trying to push more work/stress onto your teammates (as he mentioned in the tweet).
Im a SM who just started at a large account , client folks( several Indian men) ask me to do administrative tasks like take notes and send out document links to meetings . Makes me sick to the stomach that no matter how hard you work or how high you go, being a non aggressive woman automatically means you aren’t perceived As a leader
Hi SE crowd I’m currently working as an Architect, and have been doing the SE/SA role for a few years now. I’m being offered a Senior Product Manager position in my company, and currently weighting the pros and cons.. As anyone considered the move ? The project is interesting and learning product development cycle would be a nice skill set addition, but I’m trying to evaluate the long term benefit in terms of package and opportunities of PM vs Architect.

Should I take an interview for a role brand side that I have no intention on accepting? My client has been hinting at me moving brand side to work on his team. He even asked a former colleague to gauge my interest. The issue is that I would be making significantly less money ($30k) and have a much lower title. I really just want to interview to meet more people in the organization, but I’m worried my agency will find out and it would put a bad taste in my clients mouth if he finds out.
What do you guys do when you have nothing to work on? I’m an A1, and sometimes due to client delays, work gets extremely slow. I’m just curious about what’s the common thing other staff do in this type of situation so I don’t feel guilty when I end up having free time
Seeking advice of fellow consultants & seniors here. I am currently working on an Internal Project for 50% chargeability. I have spent over 3 months and found it to be very demanding, with absolutely no value addition for me. I am depressed each day with the thought of working at it. Should I walk out of the internal project? How would it fare for my image and growth within the organization? Or should I suck it up & stick around anyways?
Any account management/client services folks that have made the shift to customer success roles? I’d love to know pros/cons.

I have been seeing a lot of discussions/ questions about the bad WLB at Deloitte among folks. Guys, Deloitte is a highly reputed firm that is known for the quality of work. They charge heavily to clients. (Almost 5-6 times hourly rate than a typical IT firm). Naturally, the clients want to get the work done ASAP with quality. Hence there is a massive amount of work pressure on the management and the resources. Deloitte compensates their resources really well along with providing a lot of Perks.
I don’t always agree with this kind of stuff on LinkedIn (in fact I think the particular guy who posted this mostly just complains) but, I saw this today and could not agree more. Our jobs are way too closely tied tied to inboxes and process. And that just causes stress…

I have lost all motivation this year towards my career. I just don’t have the spark I used to have for climbing through corporate ladder. How do I find my passion? Clearly it’s not what I’m doing now.

I’ve recently accepted the fact I’m a functioning addict. Anyone here who has struggled with addiction and was able to or trying to get sober, willing to speak with me? While, I’m working with professionals to get clean through therapy, I’d appreciate speaking with someone who is in a similar career to understand how they made it work and genuinely feel supported in this struggle.
Waking up today...

first time homebuyer here, I know that I’m supposed to compare multiple rates when shopping for a mortgage but what do I do when I do find the rate I want to go with and I have multiple lenders waiting on me to say something? Do I just ghost them or do I let them know I’ve gone with another lender?
