You don’t want to let down your teammates / have them struggle more than necessary You wouldn’t want the extra burden if you were the teammate still remaining on the project/ would hope the person leaving still pulls their weight You have a strong work ethic that won’t allow you to skate on through You don’t want to make yourself look bad Its the right thing to do

The way I look at it - you don't need to go above and beyond any more but do what's expected off of you. It's not about the firm, the practice, the team, or the client. It's about who you are and what you represent. Make sure you maintain your reputation and leave on a good note.

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?

Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.

Hey everyone - when is the most appropriate time to alert a firm you are in a relationship with another co-worker? My SO and I are currently the same rank but one of us is up for promotion to manager this year end. I should also mention we are at the same client but on different projects. We currently don’t see this being a huge conflict of interest but perhaps this is naive thinking. We only recently began dating so that’s why we’re are unsure how to best approach. Would appreciate any insight.
