I am on a project planning call since morning 8 and everyone sounds like they are half asleep. Why keep such energy sucking marathon planning sessions?

Not sure what you were expecting from folks who had to be on a call for 8 hrs 🤨

like

I didn’t schedule the call. I believe anything more than 2 hours of online call should be setup as multiple calls

So you’ve been on that call for the whole day basically. What the hell

Hiya folks I’m a mid weight cw, recently gone over to the client side for the promised land (work-life balance) and am very pleased with the decision I made. However I have a lot more free-time now and am not sure what to do with my free-time ... I miss my former AD partner and the collaborative aspect of working at an agency. Any ADs or even CWs would like to connect and collaborate on side projects or just creative random fun stuff together? 🥺 👉🏼 👈🏼

I was just told by my manager that taking a 2 week vacation would look bad while staffed on a client project. I’ve already been on this project for over a year and another extension is coming. Take 1week, he said. My husband and I planned to travel to Europe from the west coast which is expensive and time consuming. We don’t want to limit ourselves to 1 week. Has anyone else run into this type of situation? Can management really dictate how long you can get away - if you have the days accrued?

Hi fish, I could use some advice.

As I prepared to file my notice, the partner of the firm called me and asked me to stay. They’re willing to promote me mid year in December and increase salary next year in August. The current offer I have gives 60% pay increase and Partner still can’t match that offer after promotion. Firm leadership says here I have potential to be a partner in 8 years and talk about all the leadership support I have rn which is fair. Is this one of their tactics to make me stay or should I just leave…
