@JPMC He's not on my team anymore.
@Analyst1 I bring cupcakes, and so do the others in my team. Oddly enough, we all get on reasonably well.

I just thought it was hilarious that he thought it was worthwhile pointing it out!

I’m a designer in the planning/landscape architecture dept. of a CE firm. Extremely frustrated that after 4+ years and multiple asks, I’m not getting the in-field construction experience I’ve asked for. I know that my designs could be better if I could see how things are actually built but I get slapped in the face with “I need you in the office designing/drafting” or “there’s no budget to have you go out” and then sends an intern to inspect instead. I’m 5 yrs out of college. Any advice?

SPHR exam- has anyone ever been “randomly selected” for an application audit?

Guess I’m not really looking for a solution here, just venting.
