Deadlines can induce anxiety attacks for me. I worked through the weekend and just woke up to a (nice!) email from the client asking about progress. We're not going to hit deadline. This caused an all-out anxiety attack at 6:30 am and now I have to somehow get myself together and work. How can I have a healthy relationship with deadlines? That "good and done is better than perfect" saying is nice, but expectations are very high. I just want to stop feeling this way. Therapy helps, kind of.
Does anyone know how closely organizations monitor their employees individual investment securities? I just started a new back office position at an investment bank and have to declare my wife's trading activity. My role is non client facing nor do I have interaction with the sales and trading teams. My wife doesn't have very many security stocks but is not happy about possibly having to now get pre clearance before selling off any stock does she have... can anyone else relate?
When you email a deck to the client and someone forgot to take off a former client's name in the template footer. Praying theydont notice

My last day at my current firm is Monday. The GC of the largest book I work on informed me this week that they want to follow me to the new firm. It’s a healthy 250k/year book. For me, a big deal. This is a client I did not originate and they predated my time at current firm. Leaving amicably is somewhat important to me. GC wants a smooth but immediate transition. Thoughts? Do you tell your mentor that your poaching a big fish or wait till you land at new firm and send the file request.
I keep hearing this is a job seeker's market but even with 10+ yrs project mgt experience, 2 industry certs & great recommendations I'm having a tough time finding roles at a higher level than Project Manager.(tech, marketing, agency). Anyone else having similar challenges and/or any advice to share? TIA!
Struggling with JE’s for earnouts paid post-acquisition. Amounts were paid out to former owners in a prior period. I think the entry was Dr. accrued expense; Cr. Cash. Now it’s sitting in accrued exp, so I asked why and the client says it was wrong and is reclassing now by Dr. Investment in Sub; Cr. Accrued Exp. (Investment in sub rolls up into current liability.) Does this make sense? I’m so confused about what this should be.

Flew to client this am. It wasn't terribly turbulent, but was very air sick. Told myself "Ok. Now I know I don't want to travel 80%." Later, at the client, "How you like to fly in more often??" Arg!
Working on my CFP. Enjoying it so far, except for the financial calculator part. This seems outdated, when Excel and other online tools exist. Seriously, has anyone been with a client in the past decade where they whipped out an HP 12C and “wowed” their client?
Currently unstaffed but received an offer today so I plan on quitting late July. Should I join a project knowing I won't be there for a while or just ride the bench until I quit?
Short project in NYC and got 2 tickets to Daily Show on Weds, March 4th at 5pm. Any F 🐠 interested? M, 26
I had a short fling with someone from my project team over a year ago that just kind of faded out when I wrapped up. He stayed in the account and I just ended up back there (cont.)
About to end an 8 year relationship. Had been engaged for the past few months and he's pretty much told me I'm not the one. I'm on a very very stressful project. Scared I will have a mental breakdown

Those on local projects, do you get to office by 9 on Mondays or align to when traveling teammates get in? Beat our local staff to the office and I come from two states away. Can I say something?
