at 6 months, that’s going to raise red flags. it’s usually a year+ to switch teams.

It might raise flags…on the VP. Ask for the switch. Life is too short to work for bad managers. If they don’t do anything send out your resume.

depends on the manager’s track record. You usually need a few people to leave before people start asking ?s

I’m in a similar situation, I’ve been with my agency less than a year (coming up on 1 year in the fall). My two cents, I encourage you to ask, it doesn’t hurt to simply ask. If they give you a generic answer, then update your resume. Sometimes you’re just not the right fit for a “team”and and you have to do what’s best for YOU and your sanity and happiness. Best of you luck to you! (And yes I just inquired about a rotation (like today), for me it didn’t seem too promising). Best of luck to you every situation is different.

A Partner reached out to me and mentioned I was staffed on a project. Two days and Career team still doesn’t reach out to me confirming my project. I’m busting my ass, before the Partner tells me that I would not be billable till we get the internal approval and I should charge my timesheet to offline work. This is my first job. Should this have happened? Can I do anything now? What can I do to manage this going forward?
