My teammate and I don’t seem to be a good fit. I’m trying my best to bring a lot to the table, always “yes &”, they just aren’t open to collaborate conceptually. Started w the “tough crap, make it work” mindset, but it’s fading. Some mentors and friends in the industry suggest I ask for a new partner. Is that something that’s feasible for a junior to ask? If so, how do I even go about doing that? Our agency currently has established teams, there isn’t much mixing and matching going on.

Have you talked to your partner/teammate about these struggles? Do you know how they best like to brainstorm? Definitely consider doing this before you discuss finding a new partner with your supervisor.

Sure, shoot me a DM. It’s a difficult situation to be in, and you’ve already done a good thing by reaching out to them directly and talking this through. I’ve been the “dumped” partner in the past (I was a mess, admittedly) and I wish that my coworker had spoken to me before going directly to our CD.

I’m in the same situation not sure what to do as multiple people have said it might put you in a situation where they lay both of you off

Is it worth it to go back to school for a better track to a FAANG company?

I applied to Amazon before for a highly senior position and made it to final interview so I think I would have a better chance for a new grad type role.
