I am a field marketer. I travel and cover 12 states. HQ is across the US on the east coast. My manager put a surprise calendar invite twice now to go to home office without consulting dates to see if we were available. I stood up and asked to be included on available dates and said I will attend virtually but asking me to be away for 4 additional full days away from my family without asking me is not OK. I already travel a lot and this boundary is super important to me. Am I right or wrong?

How far out were the meetings being scheduled? For next week, or next year?

I agree that is not enough time to plan without consulting the schedules of those involved

I’ve been waiting for security clearance since July and just found out I’m pregnant after trying for a year. I’m hoping clearance will be granted in early spring 2021 and I can start work soon after. Thankfully taking unpaid time off isn’t a big issue (won’t be eligible for FMLA or parental leave), but worried about timing and telling HR & my supervisor. I’m planning to tell them once I start; know timing isn’t ideal and stressed about starting off on the wrong foot. Any advice?

I got moved to a new team -was told that one of the team members will become my direct report. That DR reports to my new manager and my new colleague who is also an AD. Everytime I ask for a favor to the direct report on a project that we are working together, she lashes out and goes directly to my new manager that I made a “very confusing request”. It’s week 2 but this incident has happened 5 times. My manager reread my request to DR and didn’t think it was, but this continues. What do I do?
