I’m on new medication and it’s making me super irritated and paranoid. I feel myself being more frustrated at my managers than I normally would be. Advice?

Stop taking it and consult your doctor? Not all meds work for everyone

like

It sucks that it takes so long to figure out what meds in what doses work right for you. Get on the phone to your doc right away. Some meds need to be scaled back, going cold turkey could be dangerous. It took me a month to go from a high dose of Wellbutrin to zero when my doc changed my med mix (450>300>150>75>0). Your doc needs your feedback right away, not in 3 weeks when you can schedule another appointment.

Yeah talked to my doc and they basically told me to suck it up for a few weeks until I stabilize a little more. But I don’t even feel like myself

I feel your pain. Sometimes it makes a difference what time of day you take it, or whether you eat a snack before. Review your OTC meds, especially any Proton Pump Inhibitors like Nexium. I didn’t check its interaction with Lexapro, and ended up effectively doubling my blood serum level of Lexapro. Don’t rely on the pharmacy software to warn you of interactions, do some of your own digging in academic/ medical journals. Let a friend or family member know so that they help watch for changes in mood

Those at Director level in P&T (I’m a manager), do you feel there is a realistic shot at making partner in P&T? Any pillars or roles in particular?

My current thinking: there are tons of directors in P&T and what feels like too many partners already in some pillars, plus not many new or missing roles that would make sense to be filled or created by a partner. Doesn’t seem like there’s a lot of room for making partner in P&T, despite Joe saying it’s a priority. I hope I’m wrong though!

Background story - I interviewed with a company that I really want to work for for a role that I was a perfect fit for. I went through 5 rounds of interviews then was told that they ended up going with an internal referral however the entire team loved me so much and they're looking for other roles for me. I thanked them for their time and didn't really take their word but 2 weeks later I get contacted again for another opportunity on a different team. (Cont'd in comment)

SPHR exam- has anyone ever been “randomly selected” for an application audit? This just happened to me and the sheer amount of effort that is going to go into collecting all the documents almost makes me not want to follow through. Since I didn’t finish undergrad, they’re asking for a copy of my high school diploma or transcript and that itself is going to be an absolute nightmare to get hold of. Guess I’m not really looking for a solution here, just venting.

This is my first post but I’m looking for a change in companies. I have 5 YOE in total and 2 of those were in product design. I’m currently a visual designer focuses on branding. A few reasons as to why I’m looking for a new company is that my entire career has been with one company that I don’t have much faith or trust in anymore. Also the pay is below average and no market adjustments. This company is great for people just getting started but looking for something else long-term.

Can someone explain why all back office roles at investment banks are regarded so poorly? I hear things like the jobs are really dull and the pay is low. Is this true across the board? I'm thinking of internal consulting roles at investment banks. These seem to be interesting opportunities with decent compensation. Why all the hate on anything that isn't front office IB?
