I am a beginner DA user and trying to gain experience. I am trying to do a project on ESG for fun, and having some difficulty coming up with a hypothesis. Want to pick your brains and see if I can get started. I have data about CO2 emisiones, electricity usage, air quality, and that’s pretty much it. Using alteryx and powerbi (to visualize results) as I don’t have any other programs. Thanks so much!
If a CD assigns more creatives to a project than there are budgeted billable hours, is that squarely on him/her or is Account also culpable?
Networking question here. A retired partner at the firm I used to work out reached out to me recently about attending an afternoon during the week (b4 4/30) with one of his long time clients. The partner and I have kept in touch since I joined my new firm and I feel like his invitation is a great networking opportunity since the client (who I have worked with before) is on a number of boards. Torn as how to request off as an S3. Could materialize to nothing but could be good for reconnecting.

Current role feels like an abusive relationship. Client is extremely demanding, almost unreasonably so, and partners on the project are pushing hard to deliver since things are tough with covid. How are others dealing with such levels of stress in this current environment?
I’m a first year and fucked up big time. The client doesn’t know about this but a senior associate was furious. I know it’s 100% my fault but no one above me actually reviewed my work bc everyone was so busy. But then I found out the senior gave a rant about how I fucked up to another colleague. When I apologized to him, he was really salty. Since then, my heart drops every time I see his email bc I’m too scared. He is usually pretty emotional and his instructions are vague, which doesn’t help.
I rolled off a project and after 3 weeks they staffed me back. Just the thought of going back gave me a headache and a knot in my stomach :(. Just wanted to vent.
The senior and SM on my project (both guys) have worked together before, and seem to be very close. The SM started involving the senior in meetings that I wasn’t even aware about to divide and conquer. I am a newly promoted Manager, and have tried not to make a big deal about it. The client asked for an extension, but the SM doesn’t want to include me to keep costs low. I’ve provided feedback to the senior on deliverables, and often times he responds “let’s ask SM”. (Continued in comments)
On a federal project and the greatest challenge by far is dealing with the lowest cost technically acceptable contractors. The government just throws away money because they won't pay for good people
