I am always on time (live and via zoom/teams) and if I am going to be late due to unforeseen events or a scheduling conflict, I communicate that with multiple people - I ask my EA to reply all to the invite with the info or do it myself if needed, I sometimes text key people, etc. Takes just a second but protects my brand.
Saw this on Twitter. Just sharing!
Superrr nervous to tell my boss about my pregnancy. She’s a director. Married, no kids. In her 40s. I’ve always gotten the vibe she doesn’t like me very much… Q2 performance discussion went well and she gave me a sizable LTI recently but there is still something off… I’ve reported to her for ~6 months. I know the rest of the leadership team (other sr/directors and VP) will be super supportive but they are also all men with young-ish kids… Any tips??

Ladies, need some perspective. Been talking to a guy who is now flying down to my city to meet over the weekend. He has not texted this entire week once and it is already Friday evening. Am I being too paranoid? I feel like it’s basic manners at this point so just text and say “hey, flight will land at xyz. See you” or something. More context in comments below.

Hi Partners! Last year when there was no bonus etc, it was my best year in EY and I actually made more money at EY compared to my previous years or this year(including the bonus and raise this year). Also keep feeling like I have been taken granted and not valued. I also don’t feel mentally challenged with what I am actually doing, just burning out. Want to have this conversation with the team. Any tips?
