I’m a lead on a project and all the other leads got to travel to meet a client recently but I wasn’t invited. How do I not take that personally?

Why weren’t you invited? Hard to say why you should or should not take that personally without more details. It may very well be personal.

I’m not sure. I wasn’t explicitly told about this, I’ve just heard about it in passing from other leads

How and why does your project have so many "leads"?

Total of like 30 people onshore

I would ask

Good point

What level are you? If the “others” are SMs and you are not then that may be the reason

I’m a M but billed as SM to the client and listed as equivalent to the other SMs on the org chart and do the same work as them

The project did just get me promoted so I feel like they can’t hate me that much

Yeah at least that’s what it says on the SOW…

May be An oversight, just tell the partner leading the work you need to be added to the session… I would start internally not with the client.

The session is in the past, maybe for the future

How are people dealing with burnout? I really loved my job (M&A, NYC).

The hard parts of BigLaw have gotten harder and all my ways of recharging are gone (travel, commiserating over beers, etc.) I’m dying and no end in sight.

One of them had been rude to me on a previous call and was quite passive aggressive on emails to me. But I ignored those instances and kept communications with him to a minimum. Contd..

What's the norm for consulting firms during a shutdown? Do people on non funded projects usually get furloughed or kept on? Asking because I've been at a bigger firm that kept everyone on during the last shutdown, but I'm at a much smaller company now that is going to furlough on a project by project basis (if your project is shutdown, you get furloughed). Just curious if this is commonplace among smaller firms/what the norm is for bigger ones as well? What's been your experience?
