Is it normal for teams to lose it on each other on a regular basis? I’m fairly new to the B4 and never experienced it at former firms. It starts at the top and it’s starting to take a toll on my performance. Not sure if I need to suck it up and deal with it or start thinking about changing teams. TIA

Not normal. If it starts at the top though, it’s going to be hard to change. I would suggest switching projects, groups or if you must, firms. That kind of toxic stress won’t help you thrive.

Thank you for validating that - we all have bad days but it’s taking a toll and wasting A LOT of my time… and I’m usually not the one getting yelled at.

Probably more normal to lose it over someone doing a bad job, but critiques should not extend to you as a person. I don’t know, I’m used to F bombs everywhere. Even between the client and our PPMD.

Not normal. I would leave, or at a minimum switch teams.

Just want to thank the people in this bowl for giving me advice on several posts awhile back post-COVID layoffs. Had taken on 2 other (senior) people’s jobs/duties and then successfully managed and executed 3 major projects, I finally asked my new boss (team lead) about a title change and I’m glad I did! It was definitely something he had not thought about but could see the clear reasoning behind it and was willing to go to HR to ask if it was possible.

Looking for roles internally at the current company, and the role identified is an individual contributor role. I exited consulting at a Director /SM level, and due to the layoff took a not so good role 2 years ago. The hiring manager for this role asked "why do you want to be a people manager". Frankly, I was a little shocked at this even being a question. How would you react in this situation it you were me? Would you entertain/respond to this question at all? The communication is in writing.
