Hi Everyone Looking for a job opportunity for 10 years experience in Project management/Scrum Master Role.

I’m currently working on a project where I’m in a group of four. Someone said “hey I’m in your group”, and I said “sorry, the group is full”, and they said “when did we pick up this other person, we can’t do groups of 5”. They aren’t picking up the hint...

Serious - Anyone here a Project Management Professional (PMP)? Any experience studying/taking the exam? Monetary benefits to the job? I hear it can warrant a solid 15-20% premium in pay.
Has anyone ever been pulled off an account and put on another at a client’s request due to “personalities not meshing”? Any advice would be helpful.
Hello Fishes, I’ve got an interview coming up that tests on Market Sizing . What materials are out there to prep ?
Are secondments for salary partners generally a nudge out the door? My spouse is a salary partner at an AmLaw200 firm. Her PG leader offered her a secondment with real responsibility at a newly regular client with a growing book of business. In a later conversation, she told the PG leader her goal is equity (not this year but eventually). The PG leader says she is on track but also that the group has recently made new equity partners and “everything could change tomorrow.” Is she being nudged?
Hey everyone- So I didn’t get an offer for a consulting role that I had initially applied for, however the recruiter said all the feedback was positive and they’d like me to interview for a different role in the group. Are my chances of getting this other role a lot higher ? Thoughts? Thanks!
What do you wish you knew when you were asking for your first raise? I’m well over half a year from that conversation but it’s on my mind. Me and my partner have sold a good deal of work but is that enough? Because there are times when I know I could have given more to a project, but I choose my mental health instead. This is so toxic but I feel like I’m not pulling enough all-nighters to earn a raise—like it’s some unspoken rule that my whole team is thinking but not voicing.
i just had an excellent review with my supervisors. we are aligned i am ready to be promoted. i will be moving from project manager to senior project manager. the catch; my company has laid off 75% of its staff, and cut our salaries by 25%. timing is unclear, since we work in the live entertainment space. what is fair to ask for? i have 7 years work force experience, am the only one in my position, touch every creative deliverable the agency makes, and updated and streamlined 10+ processes.
PSA: reminder to schedule a day or two off in the upcoming weeks for a 4 day weekend (heck maybe even an entire week). It can do wonders for alleviating stress. Today I’ve gotten my oil changed, taken my dog to the vet, cleaned up my unibrow & have a facial scheduled. The rest of my day will be applying to jobs. I’ve only checked my email once and it feels so ridiculously good not to be tied to a laptop Monday morning. Take that time off ladies!
You catch your full-time CW/AD doing freelance while doing a half-ass job on your work. What do you do?

Thinking of heading to Phoenix for a long weekend with my wife. We like to hike but also want hang by the pool and check out the area. What part of town would you recommend we stay? Any good Marriott properties that come to mind?
Ally here. What do I say to someone who refuses to stop confusing gender identity and sexual orientation? The usual examples don't help.
Genuine question for highly paid fish: Are you happy with your life? What are the negative aspects that come with the high salary? I see a lot of people making $300k-500k+/yr and curious to hear some unfiltered opinions about how your life is going. I know sometimes I think it would be nice to be making bank but I imagine there are things which come with the territory that I don’t consider. (Including your salary would be helpful.)
Worked 15 hours a day so far this week but tomorrow is work from home and Friday I'm off. Cheers to the (almost) freakin weekend!
