I am a field marketer. I travel and cover 12 states. HQ is across the US on the east coast. My manager put a surprise calendar invite twice now to go to home office without consulting dates to see if we were available. I stood up and asked to be included on available dates and said I will attend virtually but asking me to be away for 4 additional full days away from my family without asking me is not OK. I already travel a lot and this boundary is super important to me. Am I right or wrong?

Why are there roles out there specifically for change management? Isn’t this something program managers always owned? Where does one draw the boundaries? It makes me question whether hiring change management analysts are really necessary but I see so many “change management” roles in consulting
I recently moved to industry and just got my 2nd review. I got the feedback that I come across as “defensive” when presented with new ideas. Any successful hacks from this group on righting the ship? I get that there are stereotypes about women and things about my own (very direct personality) that could drive this assessment. So I’m not trying to argue those. I’m just trying to crowd source solutions.

We hired this AM (he was an AE before we hired him) 2 weeks ago, and ever since he started, he’s been using patronising language with me and undermining me in group texts/emails. Unnecessarily responding to emails that are not addressed to him with things like “good stuff X”. “Good email” “tx for doing this. Appreciate it”, stands behind me out of nowhere and starts reading my emails over my shoulders and so on. How would you handle this?! Note: he doesn’t do this w the 👱🏻♂️at my level on our team.

Have offers from mck and bcg to join as analyst/associate. Did all the DD and had planned to sign with mck this week. Last week I saw bcg raised salaries (didn’t get formal communication yet - both offers are equal now - but I guess it’d apply to me too, since I’m planning to join in January). Not sure it’d move the needle but it’s making me rethink it. Is mck planning to match? Should I contact my recruiter and ask her about it? McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group
