You’ve got this, OP. You were hired for a reason, and you being to the client and the team a combination of knowledge, skills and abilities that are uniquely you. “Imposter syndrome” is common among folks who are basically humble and are afraid that they are not up to snuff and that someone will find out. Don’t give into that lie. That might be your next client. But it’s not you. Again — you’ve got this!

My manager doesn’t seem to have any boundaries - always saying yes to additional unnecessary work from the client and always working through weekends/nights/PTO/holidays. They are supportive of encouraging everyone else to have a WLB but since they don’t lead by example it ends up making me feel like I’m doing something wrong or crossing a line whenever I set a boundary with them or push back on a request that doesn’t align with our goals or priorities

I’ve been at a startup for a month now. I’m pretty certain my co-manager has been purposely withholding information from me when I ask for clarity on a process or general company information.

Pretty certain it’s because of insecurity and wanting to look better but I really am not a fan of these antics and it makes me question how long I want to stay here.
