Short term reaction? Because you probably won’t be staffed on it long term.

Possibly. But more like years of experience telling me that the outcome will be the same no matter what. And after 2 rounds of trying to make them see the light, fighting will do more harm than good.

I really want some clear cut long term career goals and ambitions. But working in risk and reg I haven’t found anything yet that really grasps my desire. But my seniors keep asking me where I want to go but in all honesty I just keep bouncing from one project to another trying to do a good job. Does anyone have any ideas how I can find my future career path?

Hi Fishes! I was closely working with my TL. Its a 2 member team. He's super supportive & appreciates me for the work I do. He handles when it's comes to requirement gathering, business discussions with client's vendors and all those business/functional areas. He's leaving the organisation and it's making me super anxious to handle most than half of his roles and responsibilities. I'm unsure on how I'd be taking this forward. I'm an analyst and stressed af and lackin confidance. Sugges pls? :(

I just found out I am being paid less than both of the people I manage ($6k and $10k less). The issue though is they both have a different job than me - they are project managers and I am in more of an overarching strategy role. But I do manage and represent my entire dept. I haven’t been at my company for a full year yet so negotiating my salary is hard (especially because we are very large and matrixed). How would you approach this? Is this normal? I’m just feeling very frustrated.

As someone with ADHD, the impulsive side of me speaks up in meetings without fully processing the information. Then when corrected, I beat myself up for the rest of the day. What has ended up happening over time is that I have started to come off as an introvert (because of the fear of being wrong) and also with low confidence. This is not a good trait in client facing roles where we are constantly making recommendations and clients look up to us. Anyone else deal with this?
