I’m inundated with client work. Definitely working >12 hour days resulting in no time to offer support with RFPs, practice development, etc. I feel like this will work against me come promo. Thoughts?
TFW you pack your bag for fly day and check out of hotel but there is 50% chance client needs you to stay through tomorrow. 🤔
getting rolled off a bad project early because of a bad fixed budget celebrate with me please 🥂 🍾 🎉
My current manager will not let me roll off my project and continues to say that “I’m on track for promotion here” and that if I choose to roll off then he won’t recommend me for promotion. I’ve put in a lot of work here and find this extremely manipulative. Any advice on how to approach this?
Anyone ever used an employment offer from a client you’re currently on to renegotiate salary or not worth the effort?

I've recently joined Deloitte India as a Consultant. One of the Associate Directors is forcing me to move to the base location ASAP. I'm not fully vaccinated and have my own inhibitons. 3 back to back deaths in my family due to covid. But he is not ready to understand any point and wants me to move. It's really taking a mental toll on me. What should I do?
How does Deloitte staff new experienced hires at the C/SC level? Are you assigned to a project right away?
“It just stresses me out-having ALL women on this project. It’s not even a gender thing. It just... if anything it‘d be MORE sexist to keep the team “as-is” simply BECAUSE you’re all women, you know?"
Need counsel: Left advertising to go client side last year. Working at a huge company isn’t for me long-term but the money is great, I have more balance and actually raised my kids this year. I have the opportunity to be a c-suite leader at a very small agency on the rise. Super confused. Money will be less, long-term opportunity will be more. Also thinking about having another kid soonish.
Oh man... My week home this week on the project... First time I haven't been job searching on a Sunday! Another bourbon pour for me :)
Going to tell Leadership this week that I want to be rolled off. Another project has requested me and that project is better aligned to my career. Any advice to have a smooth conversation?

So are senior leadership just yes-men/women? Has anyone encountered a scenario where they had senior leadership push back to the client?
Having the last week off has really shown me the toll this client has taken on my life in 3 months. My last client, I would have been bummed to take a week off, this one... Dreading going back on Tues
Hello 🐠, I have been on a project that I do not like, has absolutely obliterated my work life balance, and put me under a lot of stress. Not to say this doesn’t happen a lot in our job, but I have an opportunity to go back to an old client that I loved. My current project leadership knows the date I’m set to roll off, but have been hinting they won’t let me leave because I’m good at my job. I am so desperate to leave and have been advised by multiple colleagues to do so. What do I do??
Has anyone bought a standing desk converter and used EY’s quality of life program to get reimbursed?
Leave for another consulting firm even tho I’m up for promotion in a few months at my current firm? Pros of leaving are better work life balance, not stuck in one industry, minimal travel. Cons are comp - I’d be making slightly less base than what I would after promo (tho higher then right now) and significantly less bonus
Junior copywriter in nyc making 58.5k. In one year, I’ve had four projects produced incl two tv campaigns. I’ve also been in two pitches. With this info, what would be a fair salary to negotiate?
Would love some advice—I’ve spent the last 2 yrs in sr level role doing policy work I enjoy. early on I discovered I was srsly underpaid & had to fight to fix it. Then leadership changed & things were good, until recently they dangled a promotion only to tell me it wouldn’t come with a raise for at least 6 mons. Then a diff agency asked me to apply for a role that pays a lot more but the work sounds so boring. Do I follow the money or do I keep doing work I like while feeling undervalued?

Chicago Tribune: Huge crowd gathers at Rotary Hill near Naperville District 203 offices to demand area schools reopen. Hundreds of Naperville-area parents & students rallied Monday to urge local school boards to bring students back to the classroom and the playing field. Hmm...so all these parents just want to send their kids into schools do die, right? And kill all the teachers and their families too. All out of pure selfishness.

I signed an employment offer with a Company a week ago, and just yesterday received a(written) offer I am very more excited about! (Better salary, opportunities..) The HR of the other company is sending me the onboarding emails to start this Monday but I didn’t update my address to get the computer shipped. What should I do? Is it bad to join knowing I will leave or should I rescind now? I haven’t signed the other offer yet and my tentative start date (due to background checks+) is in November.
