The job for me. I just don't know how to tell my manager and I'm contractually stuck for a period of time with the firm anyway. Any advice?

Its okay to fail. Just do your best and avoid stress. When it's time (2yrs?), move to industry and do the same thing every month and get a stress free, better work-life balance.

I just came from industry and want to go back so bad. I get no feedback from my management and no training opportunities. It's just go go go/ figure it out as you go along. Is that normal?

What were you doing before? Sometimes the grass is greener. Why did you make the switch in the first place?

Sadly my last company went through a RIF. I had two options and gambled on my current gig.

What is the point in having someone else click through your slides? Is it mainly a power flex? An issue with not having two screens? Im sick of seeing principals, partners, and mds fumble through presentations all bc they won’t enter presentation mode and don’t know what’s coming next. Heck, they didn’t make the slide so they aren’t intimately familiar with it either. <insert the long awkward pause people do when trying to figure out what’s on the slide>
