Honest conversation with manager. If that could backfire because of the level of maturity they have, discuss with career counselor and have him be the mediator.

Network your way out of this and into another project. Honesty and subtlety are key. I hope you've been on the project long enough to justify why you don't like it.

I just found out I am being paid less than both of the people I manage ($6k and $10k less). The issue though is they both have a different job than me - they are project managers and I am in more of an overarching strategy role. But I do manage and represent my entire dept. I haven’t been at my company for a full year yet so negotiating my salary is hard (especially because we are very large and matrixed). How would you approach this? Is this normal? I’m just feeling very frustrated.

Long Post : I have a divorced female friend that I have known for over 15 years and consider as a sister. For the past couple weeks because I was on the bench and bored we talked about an hour+ often, especially when I am walking and need company. My wife went through my T mobile call history and mad because I'm talking to her too often and too long. She knows the friend as well and we all hangout on multiple occasions. Am I doing something wrong here? Or my wife is just insecure?

Hi guys, I switched 20 days back to Optum. I have 7 years of experience working as a full stack Engineer, who is passionate working on both front end and back end on latest technologies.

I work at a small creative agency and we’re looking to implement a project management tool to track projects across our various clients. Any thoughts on monday vs Wrike? Or any other platform you’d recommend? Prioritizing ease of use and integrations with Gsuite, Slack, Harvest etc.

I know this varies based on the company but besides project needs from the hiring manager, does anybody take multiple months between when your background check clears and you actually start? I don’t want to immediately jump from job to job but not sure if taking some time off is generally accepted.

Is this lack of litigation work normal at other firms?
