How do you deal with people you don’t like or trust at work? I find it extremely difficult to work around someone (especially if they are more senior) that I don’t like or trust. I feel like I can’t be myself of share my thoughts due to fears of getting in an argument with them, and am constantly concerned they are looking at my mistakes and reporting them to my boss or trying to get my fired. It paralyzes me and even affects how I communicate with others, as I become hyper aware of who is and isn’t allies with the person I don’t like or feel is after me. Anyone can relate?

I was placed on a PIP due to a project where the client didn’t like our work and from there I crushed the PIP and got off of it with no issues.

How long does it take for me to get fired if I keep being unassigned? My team got dissolved due to internal restructuring/regrouping and I am teamless now.

Not sure if my profile fit for any other team. I got unassigned today. How long do you think I have until I get fired?!

Hey friends, I was laid off (due to COVID) from Accenture a month ago as an analyst. I had a pretty good network of SM, MD and managers that I talked to frequently before. However once I was laid off, I got depressed and haven’t reached out to any of them. I feel horrible but I’m trying to push myself out of my depression and make some positive changes. My fear is that at this point, I’m just a number and that they don’t care. It’s causing me anxiety and I’m telling myself it’s too late now.
