In the beginning of the month I started working at a new place for a promising client, but realized the team is absolutely disorganized and no one is willing to do much. I haven’t gotten onboarding from my team and no one takes notes... is it bad to start looking again?

Absolutely not, I had a short stint at a similar sounding place this year as well. I’d maybe give it another month or two to see if things turn around, but it’s OK to begin looking for other options and beginning to think about your next move.

Fed up. Need to vent. I’ve been an analyst for 2 years. I’ve been asking to be promoted for the past year. I’ve been managing work streams, managing other team members, delegating tasks to other analysts/senior analysts, etc. I was supposed to be promoted this past November and was told to try again for next May. A senior analyst on my team is leaving the project and my manager now wants to pass his work streams down to me, on top of the ones I am currently managing. Contd.

What does Product Management in the Professional Services practice of a large SaaS company do? Sounded like identifying client professional services needs and developing a service offering for that need; but in my experience most professional service offerings are reactionary, i.e. responding to RFPs. This sounds like creating a service and trying to aggressively sell it to clients that aren’t asking for the service.

Slalom Consulting 🐠 How did you prep for your case? From what I understand (I could be wrong), it’s more focused on the logistics of an engagement (how would you structure/approach the project, engage stakeholders, etc.) as opposed to traditional “should Company A enter Market X”. If my assumption is correct, the standard case prep doesn’t seem like it would be beneficial. Are there any other materials you used?

I love my new client side job. But the west coast based team is not considerate of my time zone. I’ve been here four weeks with no improvement despite being vocal about it (within reason). My manager works non stop so I am sympathetic to that. But it often means I go days without seeing my young kids after school. Any suggestions?
