Just got back from a team dinner with the practice leader. I almost gagged myself with my spoon when everyone would laugh at his asinine jokes. #BrownNosers Corporate politics really make me sick.

I refuse to laugh at bad jokes by practice leaders. I just blow them in the hotel room later. That way i don't have to play dumb corporate politics

If I were in the leader's shoes, I'd be paying closer attention to the ones who don't laugh. Those people are more likely to have a much greater capacity to feel out a room and ultimately, when placed in front of a client, can read the situation and earn their buy in. More money for all of us. It really kills me when I see good delivery rewarded with promotions and then listen to leadership moan about how their promotes can't sell. Meanwhile those who are not as skilled in delivery but naturally good at cultivating relationships passed over for code monkeys.

I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy.

Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.

I felt I was designated as the scape goat. Continued.

Not sure if anyone else deals with this, but I feel so inferior compared to my friends at medical school or those who went to Ivy post grads.

The problem is I’ve never really been good at setting attainable goals and often get discouraged and feel as though I can never be “the high achiever”
