More than likely receiving an offer for a more technical position than I’d like in my career. In short, I think it pigeonholes me into a role I’m not comfortable with and have little interest for. How do I politely reject the offer when it comes through?

Any tips for someone who discounts good feedback but heavily focuses on the opportunities to improve? So much that I have a fear of getting fired despite receiving overall good feedback. I started a new job earlier this year. The function of the role and industry is new to me. My manager told me he generally has higher expectations than the rest of the organization. Originally, I viewed this as a great learning opportunity but can't help to think I'm not cut out for this and fear the worst.

Help! I’m from a general strategy consulting background (big 4) and have some experience in large scale transformations as well.

I heard Product Managers, Product Owners, Program Managers, but are there any others? I want to exit for sure but I don’t want to make a short term decision I regret.

On this day 6 months ago, I left my prior firm. I’m still in consulting but no more waking up in the middle of the night in cold sweats, no more conversations with my gf about how my working hours and stress are affecting our relationships, no more interventions hosted by friends who are worried about me, and no more financial issues. I would have quit after bonus payouts even if nothing had been lined up. Luckily I found something. I’m in a pensive mood - life is good 😊

Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
