New hire manager here and noticing people running circles around me in terms of project knowledge and client support. Are any other experienced hires dealing with the same? I’m trying my best to get up to speed but I’m consistently feeling like I can’t catch up with both project demands and Deloitte internal tasks. For context I’ve been staffed for two months.

Patience. A year from now you'll be running circles around your peers. Takes time to acclimate and I'm assuming most of your colleagues are home grown and have a leg up.

Lol its fine. It’s also an odd culture in that certain managers try to make their new hires fail based on their own insecurities. You’ll do great

It truly takes a good 6 months to feel more secure and a year to run those circles…stay positive, authentic and ask for help often which is hard for some of us. Going on my fourth year now and felt this same way in the beginning.

You will adjust. I you were in a smaller consulting company, then the bigger ones and their processes are overwhelming. But you will adjust. We all know that feeling and it goes by.

My Mantra is: know the system, so that it works for you 😉

I want to quit without a job lined up. My agency is a dumpster fire of incompetent project managers, revolving door of creatives and culture of not holding people accountable amidst a micromanaging gossipy leadership. I just want out. Tell me it is ok and will be alright.

Any insight would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

I purchased a pair of defective shoes ($400) from an independent shop in January and notified them when I found out. The owner promised to send a replacement, but it’s been three months and he’s being kinda sketchy and making excuses about shipping delays and changing what he promised (originally it was supposed to be a matter of weeks, and now he maintains that he promised months). Is there any recourse I can take? Or escalate this to some authority? (Or at least threaten to?)
