I ended up cracking and having somewhat of a breakdown at work and really triggered my anxiety and depression for a full month. I’m going to the doctor this morning and am scheduling an evening appt with my therapist ASAP to get ahead of this. I’m the delivery lead on my project and don’t feel like I am able to miss a day of work or have a sick day, I don’t know what to do. It’s a really small team with very junior people (less than one year of work experience) and the client and partner have been breathing down my neck the past few weeks on deliverables which our staffing model cannot support given the scope creep. I’m at a a loss.


I am awake too


I am awake but I’m in Germany at the moment. Feel free to DM me if you’d like to chat.


This is serious ... you should take a break, see a doctor


Agreed, this is the move, OP! No shame in, get your health figured out.

Youve got this OP! Take the time you need to get yourself mentally prepared for work. Do some work after your therapist appt, if you need to but you come first! You also wont be much help to your team if you “crack”. Its great that you are immediately going to the dr and therapist to get on top of this.

This was me yesterday- unable to sleep from 3-5 am due to work stress

Fishbowl fam... I need your prayers. I'm stuck at a client city (DC) waiting for a flight and my mom is in the ICU in my hometown fighting to live. Appreciate all your prayers. 😭 ✈️


Hoping that the God of Benches makes the next project start some time after next week so that I get some bench time. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers

I was talking to a first year at a different consulting firm who mentioned that even as a first year, he gets plenty of project staffing options. Is this the norm? I got pigeonholed early


Happy Tuesday! This always makes me laugh.

What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made working? I just tried to search for March madness games on one of my monitors, but it was the one I was currently sharing...during a workshop...with the client and 50+ participants...fml


Suggestions on how to word an email pushing back when agency asks if you’ll reduce your rate for an extension?

Hi all, when are the best and worst times to look for new projects in the year in federal? I'm still relatively new in this industry and I'm thinking about leaving my project soon but I'm paranoid about project availability. I don't want to be on the bench for too long because I was on the bench for about 2 months when I first joined.


Kaine looks like he's been on a 14 month bender

Can a law firm in CA rescind an offer if background check reveals an omitted employment history? Worked at a firm for 2-3 months back in 2019 that wasn’t a good fit. Not fired but left to really drive my career in a better direction. I now have an offer from a great firm and scared background check will affect my chances.

The PE culture is sick. The 20 something VP was rude to our partner because our team took thanksgiving and the day before off and it was in the engagement letter that we were gonna be off. He kept emphasizing that his team did our job while we were on a break. Dude we are not sick like you and we have lives. I see something about how s**t the PE culture is in every deal we support. Like these sickos make fun of us for working 80+ hours weeks for them and taking thanksgiving off.
