I’m up for promotion this month. I will be in charging jobs this busy season. What do you all use to stay organized? As a staff I was using just a regular planner. Now I’m wondering if a project planner would be better. I use the goodnotes app for a planner currently. I’d prefer keeping it digital so I have it on my phone if I forget my iPad.

For a purely digital solution, I'm a fan of Google calendar, since it's easy to add appointments in straight from my email. I also know a number of people who are fans of Cozi, since it also has task/shopping list/other items you can use to keep everything in one place.

I use Google calendar and I keep track of deadlines/daily tasks as well as my schedule and meetings that way I can look at my day and see everything in one spot and what my gaps are to complete tasks

I'm in a awkward spot. I barely do anything at work while I'm very well paid (most likely overpaid) and our agency is happy with me and my partner. Until here everything's a dream. But we barely do anything so it's almost impossible to progress and go anywhere else, never mind for the same salary. The agency is one of the most famous ones, the client one of the biggest in the world, but small briefs and small budgets. Also, our CD and CCO are kind people, but not good enough to look up to them

Hi! I’m a solution analyst, hired on a year ago as a campus hire. What is the typical raise associated with promotion to solution specialist? Is there a merit-based raise as well as a separate promotion raise? Just want an idea of what to expect. I’m also curious regarding the performance splits—how much more of a raise can a top performer expect than an average performer? Thanks!

Curious if anyone has advice if I should look for another job. My boss is a micro manager, not big on WLB, I don’t see an opportunity to independently work on projects ever and there is no path to promotion since it’s a very small team. On the flip side, he’d take me to all exec meetings and it’s been in an incredible learning experience to be in those rooms, listening and knowing where I’m making an impact. He’s been a good coach and thinks highly of me. (Contd.)
