The ASK EAs seem to do alot more than the assigned EA and have a broader range of skills. If I were still an assigned EA, I would be concerned for my position in the future. Right now ASK will support Director down to Manager and in some cases PPMDs. As the promotions continue in the future, those individuals will be accustomed to ASK and it will he easier to release the remainder of the other EAs.

I know everything ASK does. I even trained a few of them. I work outside the box ... always. I keep my skills up and sharp. Learning new apps and taking on more projects outside of my role. I know mentor of mine always said learn to drive the business not ride it

Nope.

Hopefully, EAs are using ASK for a placeholder until they get a job at a much better company.

When can we expect a world where stereotypes of men and women disappeared and people around you don’t just judge your marriage life?

Why cannot be the opposite? When the wife earns more money and husband doing housework, it seems unacceptable and ppl judge the wife is not having a happy marriage.
