Anyone else find so many things are just exponentially harder right now? Say you have a project or idea you’ve been told to pursue. There’s pushback EVERYWHERE. Those who work for me. Those whose inputs are necessary to execute project/idea. Everyone is DONE. And I get it but also don’t. It pushes me closer & closer to quitting, new job or no new job. One can only fight battles on so many fronts. FWIW, I work in a “matrix” organization, which I’ve come to believe means “getting nothing done.”

Hello Fishes, Any WFH extension update for IHS markit? Or it depends upon the project?

How many projects had you all implemented/led at 5 years of experience?

Really disheartening to be led by people with less experience. I have only been staffed on 1 project as a support since joining, and it's really boring compared to leading 4/5 projects at once like i used to.
