Ever since moving to hybrid work, my coworkers are always complaining about how much they hate their jobs, how much of a hassle it is to travel or work from home. How can you be expected to do your job when you're just so far away from everything?
I just finished my first full year at my firm and got close to hitting my billable requirement but fell a little short. Had a death in the family and my mom has been sick, which was distracting. Covid stopped travel billing for court/depo. Firm said I will not get a bonus OR a raise next year if I don’t hit hours. I understand the bonus part, but shouldn’t raises be based on tenure/seniority? I still do great work for the firm and clients are happy. Just curious what other firms do for raises.
Any ideas for a low budget holiday with my gf for approx. 7-10 days? Departure would be in Germany and the travel should start in Jun/Jul/Aug. Somewhere warm, with only few tourists. (cont’d)
Nothing like waking up to a $115 ticket because you're on a shitty client at the edge of the universe, working until 2am. Happened to park in a bus lane and slept in past 7am...So over this job.
I currently lead a team of UX consultants working at an enterprise client. Recently, the consulting company got another enterprise client asking for a single UX resource and I am seriously considering it to diversify my experience. My concern is because this is a one UX resource request, leaving my current leadership position to become an Agile team feeding, UI-producing consultant. What are the questions you ask the client before you switch to another billable project to mitigate such risks?
SO beyond frustrated with my work environment I think it may be time to leave for good. I returned from maternity leave after 4 years of working at my very old-school, boys club, nepotism-friendly company. The number of remarks I got on my appearance, my pregnancy and etc was a little annoying before I left, but since I've come back it's been nothing but comments on how they can't believe I'm leaving my husband home with the baby etc. Sorry for the long post just needed to vent!!

I submitted my resignation yesterday after much internal conflict. Work has become a toxic environment and I’m 6months pregnant, need to focus on myself rather than all the extreme stress and pressure. It’s been so challenging that I’ve missed doctor appts, only been eating 1 meal a day, getting few hours of sleep. Now I can enjoy the next few months with my son before the new baby comes. Then I need to figure out my next move! Ideas? Looking to get out of patient care administration

Thought experiment for you, fishies.
We all love to hate on billable hours. What’s a real, feasible alternative???
Small agency owner 🙋🏻♂️ I’ve wracked my brain and have 3 biz model options, none great:
Billable hrs: Generally accepted. We all know the downsides.
Pay4performance: Big upside potential, tons of risks.
Project pricing: Cloak for billable hours. You have to estimate project cost with something.
Who’s thought of a better approach??? Genuinely curious if there is one.

I’m watching the creativity awards on ad age. I decided to take a shot everytime I see a POC nominated. So its been 35 minutes and I have only seen one. But that wasn’t even the surprising part. When they went to the Inclusion award that’s when I just started laughing at the amount of Karen’s and Micheals in position. Not one person with a shade of color was in the category lol 🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️

Happy Belated New Year's, all! For those who practice intuitive eating, have you successfully lost weight/inches? I'm a CICO (calories in/out) die hard which has helped me lose major inches in the past. When I don't track/measure, my sense of proportions are out the door and the pounds pile in. So I'm coming to terms that I'll be forever logging on MyFitnessPal [sigh].

I've been going to Orangetheory 5-6 times a week for the past 3 weeks and have been eating around 1,200 cals a day with no eating past 8p and drinking lots of water. I'm confused because sometimes the scale will show that I have lost weight and other days it doesn't. Overall I feel like I'm only getting bigger. It's discouraging at this point, does anyone have advice?
