Is it ever appropriate to talk to your coach about a colleague? Also consider that my coach is close to this person.

What about the person do you want to talk about?

Don’t do it. Try finding someone else to talk to. Maybe a manager, etc. from one of your teams.

If your approach is out of concern, I think it will be fine to discuss with your coach. If your coach is close to this individual, he or she would want to help as well. Regardless, if you feel these “issues” (whatever they may be) need to be addressed, you may not be the only one that noticed. Perhaps, you can sit this one out and let the big boys work this out. People are not stupid and not sure why they would ignore these “issues” if it is significantly dragging down the team.

Agree with AS1. If you know they’re close, you need to talk to someone else

It's appropriate but I wouldn't if the coach is close to the person. Better off not finding out they like the other person more. Is it serious? Do you have other options? Can you just talk to the other person instead of having an intermediary?

After an interview this morning, I sent out what was SUPPOSED to be a thank you email. I really should have stepped away from my desk and put my full attention towards it, but instead I rushed through it and am now realizing I didn't even THANK HIM FOR HIS TIME OR THE OPPORTUNITY! Ugh.

Does it come off as entitled as I think it does?

Ok need some advice-I’ve been at my firm for 8 months supporting the same attorney since day 1. About 3 weeks ago a new associate started and I’m her main support also. I want to get her something for Christmas but I know very little about her lol. She’s in her late 20’s, very stylish, single. I also don’t know what a good amount to spend is. For reference we are in a suburb of Syracuse, NY, we represent school districts and my salary is $42,000/yr. Any tips would be awesome!!

The hostility on my team is rough. We have a yeller. I walked by her room the other day. She was screaming across the room at a student, "you have to be kind to get kindness." Seriously, those were her words in a loud, berating, angry tone. Our admin has asked that we not report these. We are to talk to the teacher. She has yelled at me and other adults. Admin has to know she treats the kids this way too. One teacher has to work with her door closed to not hear the yelling all day.

A director takes every opportunity to take a jab at me or use me as an ‘example’. It shuts up the rest of the team including the SM and makes me not want to offer any ideas any more. Honestly...

I really don’t enjoy working with a teammate, I feel she’s not competent. When I talk or discuss with her, it’s more like I’m influencing her and passing my knowledge to her because she doesn’t know much. She takes my ideas and get credit and recognition from the team. If I don’t connect with her, I also won’t be a good ‘team player’ as we suppose to work together.

Hi, I just want to know the calculation behind variable pay in the Accenture offer. For example, if the fixed is around 17lpa and variable pay is 27% (459000) total CTC is around 21.5LPA. It is mentioned that the standard variable payout is somewhere between 7 - 13% biannual. My question is 7% of Fixed or 459000,?? And it says biannual, so will they give the same amount twice in a year? Please give some answers. So confused.
