Those above me were aware that I am new to the field and needed a little bit of handholding. I received no feedback until I was kicked off the project. I had reached out for help and received none. I am feeling extremely frustrated as I have been on the bench for a while and have been getting passed over for open projects.

It’s one thing to travel to client site (obviously part of the job), but another to have to drive out just to work with my team. I wish that would’ve been communicated to me before I started.

Hi All,

Recently got the opportunity to "grow our ESG/CSR" practice at a small regional consulting firm, due to my recent grad certification in sustainable strategy. Wondering where I should focus us as a services industry for big impact - we have a large product innovation, engineering area, and know in the past we've had a lot of lip service to clients and only recorded ESG for their compliance.

Hoping to make a big difference and include CSR/Sust audits for our client projects! Any tips?

IMO, this guy does nothing. He steals the ideas of his team members and then acts like tyrant in front of people.
