The ‘Splainies

Mid-level Account girl emailed me a copy of my own form ‘for reference'. Like a Business Manager doesn’t know what a talent completion report is. Really?! 🤦‍♀️

“Girl”? How about support a sister, and share knowledge? Sheesh! #toughcrowd We were all coming up at one point.

That’s because mid level AE probably doesn’t even understand what it is that you do for a living! I was once introduce to the client as “the person that contracts the videographer”

A Management Sup who has worked at the company for 3 years should know better. And if she weren’t so arrogant, I’d be happy to teach her. But instead of asking questions, she tries to bluff her way through her ignorance. I don’t have time for that

I hear you BADOP (sweet acronym btw) Just sayin it’s hard to rise the tide when demeaning at the same time. Ain’t nobody got time to waste. We have sooooo much to do, as a collective, it makes me crazy when we add extraneous shit into our daily vocabulary unwittingly. I admit that it pisses me off when I’m referred to as Ma’am. Miss or lady are fine if you please. I’m ok with the mystery of “gentleman’s” mysterious marital arrangement. Doesn’t really seem pertinent. Right? Hard to do, but you can always change that one thing. Campaign to get her moved / shifted (unemployment at all time low) it take a deep breath. At the very least, don’t add noise or negativity. I feel ya sister. Ain’t none of us got ENERGY to spare. ✌🏼

When you, same as everyone else, hate your job but you can’t show it to your team, so they don’t get demotivated nor demoralized. Sigh...

I am shocked that Capco thinks it’s acceptable that one email on Sunday may be sufficient to address the global pandemic that’s occurring. We should not be considered BAU, measures must be established

How would you assess transitioning roles right now? I don't believe I will be counseled out for any reason due to relatively high performance. Potential PE investment exit as well

How soon is too soon to leave? Over 1 year in fed, extremely underpaid, and waiting until October for a pay bump seems like an eternity away. Booze, BCG, McKinsey?
