Hell yeah. Managing people is partly getting them in the right role. Everything runs so much smoother when you task people with what they're good at and enjoy.

I went from receptionist —> copywriter —> strategy —> back to creative again. I think the onus is more on the person than the company. If you have a vision for where you want yourself to go and you’re good at what you do, people will rally around that attitude. No matter where you are. I’ve worked at both antiquated, stuck-in-their ways WPP agencies, hot independent places and now back at a big holding company. The above has always been the case.

I accepted an offer from another firm and gave notice to my direct partner on Friday. He asked me to wait a few days as a courtesy before giving notice to the firm’s managing partner. The partner I work for knows several of the attorneys at the firm where I got the offer. He is now coming back to me and saying my current firm will match the salary, offer better hours, better title, etc. Needless to say, I’m torn. How bad is it to walk back on an accepted offer? We are in a smaller legal market.

Had a phone screen with BCG recruiter today. As a current Big 4 manager with a specific industry and function focus for ~7 years, when asked if I prefer Generalist or Expert track, I said I’m ok with either, because I love selling (Generalist) but I’m also very interested in continuing my existing focus (Expert). She said she can mark me down for both. What are everyone’s thoughts on not necessarily having a firm one-or-the-other answer?

Slight vent: I had saved up a bunch of PTO to travel a ton this year (long-term project) which obviously got kicked to the dust and I have a bunch expiring this year because of that.

I have go lives through February and feel like I’m sprinting a marathon and will never get a break now.
