And only they know what they need. Just like in a typical war, the congressmen pounding his fist to send more troops, take troops out, or shift troops somewhere else is very far removed from the Captain, Sgt, or Cpl fighting the good fight.

Take it easy with this front line. As much as I hate to say it lots of consultants in a daily basis do lots of work to save America/ humanity. I know an acn consultant who travels to war zone for technical implementations and trainings

I’m designing the strategic plan and letting other folks implement it incorrectly

I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.

How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave).

Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
