I have seen many people become leisure in notice period and doesn’t bother about co-workers. Now, I am on notice period and want to do same but don’t feel doing it since management sucks and my co-workers will be ones who will feel pressurized as I have been in same place before. Can I get suggestions how to handle the time? should I repeat what others have done to me?

Currently struggling with lack of motivation. I’m in my 3rd year at my firm and when I started I was hitting 9+ billable per day before I left the office. Now, the saying: when there’s no consequence for poor work ethic, and no reward for good work ethic, there is no motivation” hits home. Over the past two years I’ve seen the opposite of indispensable employees. Yet, they sit at the same table as I do and make more. Any advice?

Me: 🔥🔥🔥😃🔥🔥🔥


What would you do?

Your teammate with the same title and pay as you is at your desk all the time for help. I'm definitely open to helping - but sometimes "help" is basically the whole job - it feels like I'm doing both jobs lol and it almost feels unfair that we both get paid the same or very close (Colorado, so pay transparency). The teammate has been with the company for longer than me.


Boss2 (American): “Why can’t I just do THIS?”
Boss1 (American): “Because it just complicates things! Why do you have to go and throw a spanner in the wheel?!”
Boss3 (British): “Spanner in the wheel?? You’re mixing up your metaphors. It’s spanner in the works.”
Boss2: “What’s a spanner?”
Boss3: “In ENGland where we speak ENGlish, it’s the item you mistakenly refer to as a wrench.”
Boss2: “So – a wrench in the works?”
Boss3: “Yes, it’s a tool that screws everything up …like you.”


Has anyone who’s Asian been told “you need to develop soft skills” or “leadership skills” when asking for a promotion to be a people manager? If not, how about “you need to keep expanding your scope and we’ll see what happens”?
