Legit question... how do you get urself to care about ur clients/project work? I’m finding myself giving less and less sh*ts and it’s affecting my work quality.
Looking for some perspective. Any one here ever find out their SO was having an affair or know someone that has gone through that? Did you end up giving them another chance or just end it? How did things turn out? Recently discovered that my spouse had an emotional/physical one during a traveling project in what I thought was a happy marriage. It’s been rough so was interested in hearing other stories/perspectives of people who have been in this situation. Never thought it would happen to me.
Team member on project, "You're not like most black people out there..." "How many black people do you know?" I said. "....not that many personally if I'm to be honest." Me: "Oh..👀" *subject change*
Prayers that I can keep my mouth shut at the office today ladies. Had an ambush meeting yesterday that completely blindsided me and my boss with feedback from my client. And of course, I'm scheduled to work with the client in person today. I'm still furious, but have a meeting this afternoon to verify the feedback since it was 4th hand. If it's true, I'm probably quitting because the client hasn't even indicated there's a problem and I can't do two-faced relationships.
The CIO on my project called me a saint today for dealing with her difficult people. 😇😟 At least I'm not the only one who thinks they are challenging! #Sainthood

New-ish to the freelance world and in discussions with a reputable company for a gig. Problem is, they expect nights and weekends but don’t offer OT. Getting a day rate, not project rate. Sound odd?

When I should jump to a new project? I’ve been on my current project for almost 6 months and I’m struggling (worst Snapshot in my whole time at D). I knew it would be a challenge but I’m miserable. Also struggling with depression and anxiety which is made worse by the pressure I’m putting on myself.
🤢🤮 Got this mail today from SM. The reality was a toxic work environment that saw 7 people quitting and an HR escalation.
My team has started ignoring my messages. I’m not sure what I did; I’ve been getting good feedback on my performance, I don’t message excessively often, and I don’t think I’ve done anything to cause social discomfort. The project is busy, but honestly workloads have been lighter than they used to be because we brought in additional resources, so that doesn’t explain the shift in communication styles. I used to feel like a useful team member but now I feel like an annoyance. What should I do?

Im currently a senior associate at RSM getting promoted to supervisor (role between senior and manager). I have offers with big 4 to be in accounting advisory, but it would be as a senior with no pay bump. Would it be worth it for the exit opps? I eventually want to leave public as a manager

What r the chances of a person who’s only had in-house experience for 7-8 yrs to lateral into Biglaw?
