I wonder if I’m too emotional to be in business / accounting does anyone have any book recommendations dealing with this?
How do you deal with an overbearing manager? Been on the same project for a year with no end in sight and this person is starting to get to me.
Have an associate 2 years junior to me with whom I work frequently.. they seem to make an intentional point of not responding to my emails (but promptly responds to client, partner, etc), but 75 percent of time will eventually do what I ask. It has become a distraction. Generally I get good upward reviews - I’m respectful of juniors and expect them to have a life, etc. I’m unsure why the passive aggression. Any tips on handling or do I have to just deal with it? I’m worried about a confrontation

Do you think social work is a thankless job? Obviously your main goal in the job shouldn't be to gain acknowledgement, but is it wrong to feel discouraged after years of work to get not even a thank you from a client or from my boss? Just frustrated that I have to always be my own cheerleader.
Give me some hard questions/ demands. I’m being headhunted to a job that on the outside seems very tough/ impossible client. Tell me some hard arse things to ask for, some thoughts belie in the commen

I’m pregnant with my first child. It’s early, but I’m already dreading telling my project leadership since I’m a key player on my account & I also got promoted. The client is heavily reliant on me. When’s the soonest I should tell them? I’m assuming after the 12-13 week mark...
Want to improve my verbal and written communication skills. I hear reading more would help but I don’t read as much as I used to. So I’m wondering what books would help with that?

Now I'm in a client location, My manager is a good person but he told me, I should report to Lead.

What should I do ?
Age discrimination is an unfortunate fact of life. I don't know if it is a good idea to highlight my experience... which shows I have been around for a long time... or downplay it so I appear younger and more in touch with our client base
How have other people dealt with being the only woman on their team? I’m currently the only female on a team of 18 engineers. I’m treated as an equal and I love my team. It’s literally just that I’m the only woman and I find it kind of hard to relate to some of my coworkers. I’ve already talked to my manager about hiring more women (discussed this when the only other woman left the team for a team that was more balanced) but we can’t just put out an ad saying “women please apply”, y’know?
I just want to say thank you to this bowl for all of the good book recommendations - I’m reading ‘women who love too much’ and I feel like I just got woke
My partner of 5 years ended our relationship last night. I’m shattered and feel absolutely sick, and I know the healing isn’t going to be easy. We were on the verge of an engagement and I was ready to spend the rest of my life with him.
I don’t know how to approach work during this time. I think I can get by, but I’m definitely not 100%. Should I talk to my boss about it? My team is close-knit and comfortable around each other, but I don’t know if it’s “appropriate.” What would you do?

Has anyone had a vaginal birth and had their doctor clear them after more than 6 weeks? My company pays 100% of maternity leave if for medical reasons, but the rest is unpaid.

Going to talk to my doctor and not looking to game the system, just genuinely curious.
