I'm starting to hate the word "client." It's starting to sound weird to me now. You know, like when you say a word multiple times. Client. Client. Client. Get it?

This job is making me insane.

I work for a 3PL Supply Chain company as a Project Manager. I’m receiving a promotion in the next few month and looking for some input/guidance on salary expectation.

I joined ACN as an experienced hire a few months ago and it’s not what I expected. I’ve worked as a consultant before but more integrated at clients and could follow through on projects, whereas now it feels like everything just ends up in a PowerPoint.
I had a slow start without any project for a couple of months so I applied for other jobs and got an offer from a big tech company.

I feel bad to even consider leaving after so short time and not really giving it a fair chance.
Any advice?
