Why not take on more work where you are? Almost all jobs have some sort of projects that need extra attention, or optional work like ERG management. You can fill your time and justify a bonus or promo.

I am still new to the company and still figuring out how should I request more work. It's really annoying.

I’m in Feb of busy season and I think I might have met my person. He already asked me out on a date etc. but my schedule is so chaotic right now… (shout out to my tax people out in the battlefield right now, y’all the best)

My schedule will likely not be free until mid-April since ‘this the season to eat, breathe, do taxes, bill clients, and put out daily fires. So should I just schedule this first date for then…? Or is that too much of an ask?

Currently a local gov lawyer (was a prosecutor before that). Live in a small market where government contractors are the big employer for the community. Eventually I’ll make decent money in my role but I find myself getting impatient as friends w/o law degrees make more money than me as like subcontracts administrators with room to climb the corp ladder. Sometimes I think about leaving for this. No loans, will never do big law. Just tired of not being able to buy a decent house. Am I crazy?

Idk where else I can vent. My compensation effectively decreased this year and my entire support system (parents, gf, and friends) just repeats the same “be grateful you have a job” garbage to me. I worked my ass off to get this job and be a top performer so I’m not grateful for my hard work. It’s not luck. I’m frustrated that my compensation is well below my peers and there seems to be no way up anytime soon. I thought consulting was supposed to have high wage growth. Thanks for listening.

They project won

Give us this day our billable hours

And lead us not to industry
But deliver us to client site.

At the end of the week I also end up with a bunch (50+) of open Outlook windows related to meeting invites. Basically, I look at my calendar, double click the invite then join the Zoom meeting. It takes me directly into the meeting and leaves the invite window open. Wash, rinse, repeat and by Friday there is literally one for every meeting I attended. Unfortunately, you can’t close them all together because it will ask you “Want to save your changes?” for every single one. Thoughts?
