I'm on a messy project with 3 months to go live and a new Manager & Sr. Manager. Got decent performance evals but am stressed out. If I roll off now, would that screw up my promotion next year?

Too much work and unsupportive leadership with no recognition. They know we have a deep bench and seem to take advantage of it


When is your year end?

It starts this week

Find a replacement resource who can step in .. And have a discussion with the SM or his boss about how you really need to pursue a career goal but you have a replacement who would be a good fit. Do not make it sound like you are leaving the project because you did not like the people.

The previous director knew I wanted to leave and have a replacement consultant & a sr. consultant as well. I'm worried about bad blood

Why are you stressed? Too much work or difficult client or unsupportive leadership?

I'm in the same boat as you, OP I'm also up for promo, so it's a super delicate situation)! We only have to hang in there a bit longer until YE are finalized--we've got this!!

@OP: How is your relationship with the Manager and SM? Try to build some rapport where you can 'seek help' (i.e. giving them feedback). Relationships can be challenging but can help.

Junior struggling with my confidence in my abilities. I’ve always loved expressing myself in writing and I think it’s definitely a strong suit of mine. I’ve realized I don’t think I’m great at long form copy but excellent in short form. It makes me doubt myself like who do I think I am calling myself a writer? Anyone else relate? Maybe I just don’t have enough experience or it’s imposter syndrome settling in? How do you navigate self worth in such a subjective, emotionally tolling industry?

Thoughts on comp from those in the know? Considering an offer to join a mid sized asset manager, $30bn AUM as a funds / PE transactional associate. Im an 8th year at a v5 (10 years out of law school). Total comp = $450 (300k base, rest bonus). Hours per week likely 50-60 (working way more now). They offer great 401k matching but they don't increase the base (or even likely the bonus) every year. Is this a decent package? Should I hold out? I am the breadwinner and have 3 little ones, for context
