My project client location in Denver started in person mandatory days. Few of colleagues started to go there. I’m confused as I was hired as PDM and I live in east coast and project is in west coast. My leadership is not forcing me anything and they left it to us but I don’t want to lose job because I’m not traveling. Any suggestions?
How do you deal with a manager who always blame you for actions that the manager instructed me to do in the past? E.g. manager reviews client decks with you and instructs to just note a strict budget to report. After a week, manager rereads the same deck and blames me for not supporting the budget that was added per the manager’s request. We always have this situation, no matter how much I ask for clarity in any internal reviews. I even sent back the emails and slack chats as an attachment.
What is it about clients that obligates them to go on vacation as we’re preparing to close on a deal (or they decide to leave the country the morning of closing)? Is it something in the water?
A sign I need to fire some clients: when my out of office email reply hits the next reaction is to immediately call my cellphone. Nope. Call the number I left in the email to gain assistance. I cannot help you from jury duty, the doctor’s office, vacation, or anywhere else I might be when the auto replay directs you elsewhere.
There are so many holiday parties to attend. Any advice on how to make it to many and still be a functional human by the end of the week?
Hi everyone, would like to know the Bowl's thoughts on this: I am a recent MBA graduate who has joined one of the cloud computing firms. It's all good. Loving the new job. But I would eventually want to make a move to Google. I am a project manager and would like to know the opportunities at Google for me in the future. What skills should I have? What roles should I look out for and when would it be best to switch?
P&C focused people: What do you do to find success cross-selling life policies? I mostly sell P&C off internet leads. Most are not the ideal client for my company but I take care of them like I would anyone else. I do okay but not great with life after having the client for six months once I move them into a preferred policy. That move saves them enough to make life doable coupled with established trust. I’ve been told just to quote the auto and life together initially but it feels “off” to me.
Almost all the high holidays fall out on the weekend this year! Might be the first time I’ll have rollover PTO!

POV: I’m a corporate junior associate and I am 250 hours behind my target to make hours this year (need 2k for bonus). Am I just SOL at this point? My fear is that I’m busting my ass and saying yes to every deal to try to make it up but if I don’t make my hours anyway, I didn’t have to try so hard and stress. (Also, I have about 2 weeks of vacation planned before the holidays so I’ll have to make that up too)
Does thinking about ur project at home count as "billable hours"?Apparently my manager thinks so. The joy of fed consulting.

After a client call, which I drafted the talking points for, the male partner on the deal and a male senior associate went to grab lunch. I was tasked with dropping off the partner’s notebook on his desk. It may be that he and the associate had preexisting plans, but I was the only woman in the room/on the call. I can’t help but feel he wouldn’t have asked a male associate to do that, and would have instead invited him. I regret not inviting myself….How should I have handled this?

I am pretty good at staying active, I walk my dog about 1-2 miles a day. I lift and do cardio. But for the life of me, I can’t lose weight. I’m stuck at 175, I fluctuate 3-5 lbs but can’t get lower than 170. I know it’s my diet, it sucks. What was a small thing you did to improve your diet that helped? Any tips to help follow my diet and not overeat/eat tons of fried food?
Anyone know of job opportunities for a UK qualified solicitor (corporate law) in Germany? Doesn't necessarily have to be legal counsel, open to other roles, preferably not a big corporate firm (mental health reasons). S.O. and I are moving to Germany, both are allowed to work there due to EU nationality so visa is not an issue. Unfortunately not great German language skills (fully aware this poses a problem). Would really appreciate any help on this, TIA.
Hello fishes. I'm an MBA graduate currently working as a digital marketing professional in a mid size consulting firm with 3 years of experience. I am terribly underpaid in my current org at 5.5 LPA after a recent promotion and annual appraisal. Another mid size consulting firm offered me 7.5 LPA but I am asking them around 9 LPA. Am I asking too much or shall I take the offer of 7.5 LPA? Thank you
How hard is it to get a tech cofounder? I want to change the way the world lends when crypto is used as collateral. MVP involves building out api end points, building a portal and decision engine. No front end apps or web portals. I have a deck and have had meaningful conversations with money but it’s too expensive to buy everything from scratch to get started. Perhaps an outside team commercializing and scaling a prototype will be much more economical. Feedback?
I’m dealing with severe anxiety about my future. Woke up at 4 this morning and found it difficult to get back to sleep. I’ve talked to a therapist and family, taken medication, and read self-help books, nothing seems to work. I feel as though it’s never going to get better.
