Just accepted a role at a pharma company. Not entirely sure if I will pass a drug test, should I bring it up with HR? What are the consequences for failing a client drug test?

If you will fail tell your CC or the project lead. They’ll figure out a way to delay or staff you elsewhere. If you proceed with the test and fail, it looks bad on everyone and you’ll be booted from the project

Dont listen to PwC1. There is always at least one response like that on these types of Qs. I'd only bring it up to your CC or Manager on project if the client actually does request you take one. Do your research and if u can get clean in time then say nothing. If you cant, better to give your team a heads up since they would find out anyways.

Is it only through lateral moves within the org? You get enough tenure for the next role then find an opp to switch?

I have minor generalized anxiety. Lately, I’ve had worse anxiety than normal, and as a result, I’m taking my second mental health day in a row. I didn’t tell my firm that it was a mental health day, I just told them I was sick with non-COVID symptoms. None of the partners I work for objected or said anything negative, but I’m now getting worried that they’re somehow going to find out it was just a mental health day instead of physical illness, and that it will somehow bite me in the ass . . .
