Depends on the project, but in my experience, it means that you’re going to be the report writer and nothing else

I need help asking for help - more specifically identifying what exactly others can help with. There are extenuating circumstances in most cases but I’ve had coworkers out in bereavement, project scopes increasing, and my own capacities are shrinking with burnout - I can’t focus, misreading/misinterpreting, I’m spacing on finding documents/notes, and overall inefficient between calls with the volumes of emails. Friends & manager tell me I’m being too hard on myself, but work is only piling on

This is why I feel like this interview was somewhat staged and that M&H are not exactly the most trustworthy.
