I’ve been leading a massive project by myself for the last year almost and my boss torpedoed my last round of meetings: “oh we don’t need to socialize this, I’ve been doing it, let’s just kick it off.” Okay. So turns out, no one fucking knew and now because we had one meeting instead of two, the people we met with aren’t even the ones doing the work, and they’re not telling the ones who are supposed to do the work about it. So I now need to go back and do more meetings.

Need advice: I am very early in my career. I am currently the project manager of our ERP implementation. My boss, the CEO, has offered me a position as a NetSuite administrator with the company paying for my certifications. My first response was that I am not really interested in IT and would rather do something more business related. He has since offered me a position as an associate project manager. I know this decision will effect the trajectory of my career. Did I make the right choice?

I recently got a job offer from a company I used to work for that has a great work/life balance and culture but has a slower track to get promoted. My current employer has a not great work/life balance but it’s much easier to get promoted.

Hi All
Does anyone have my information on the role Assistant Manager PPM.

Is it taboo to assign “personal” tasks to your LAA? For example, I could really use an assist on rescheduling a hair appointment today. Didn’t assistants use to help out in this way: picking up dry cleaning, really managing your calendar, etc.? I have NOT requested these things of my LAA but as I get more senior, I could really use a full on personal assistant.
