I have a partner who makes up deadlines and pretends they are client imposed. Come to find out on more than one occasion that was not the case.

like

Pwc1 I think the point is that they pretended it was a client deadline instead of just saying "I'd like it done by this date so I can review it@

Partners have to set deadlines or you babies will suck the tit off the project.

Maybe you would do that, but as a responsible adult I get my work done on time and bill what it actually takes to get it done.

I don’t admire my project leadership and sometimes loose my motivation to work on the project. How do guys deal with this scenario? I don’t want to come across as I want to leave the project but at the same time, I am finding it difficult to hang on to it. Why I don’t admire project leadership? I am not learning anything new from them (I don’t know everything but I feel I am solving small problems and don’t really getting anything new from the project)

I’ve been off my last billable project for about a month, but my firm has had me putting in full days to work on important internal initiatives and business development that are being taken very seriously, and that include deadlines, etc. very similar to the work I’d do while on a project. Is it likely I’ll be laid off if this continues for another couple of months? How long do you think my firm might let me stay employed like this if they continue to have this much non-billable work for me?

How bad does it look to prospective employers to change jobs every 3 years? I've done this since college (12 years ago) and have tripled my salary as a result. Granted, I've switched between the same two companies each time, getting a big pay bump in the process. Now, the other company is looking at bringing me back again (3rd time). The pay bump won't be as big, but much better WLB, less travel, and I'll be able to do what I love. Opinions on this?

My firm is giving out surprise mid year bonuses to associates hitting the prorated annual bonus cutoff. I had a major injury for which I worked through treatments for about 3 months Jan-March. I didn’t take any time off, but I did set hard boundaries to make it to PT and medical appointments and not overwhelm myself. I’m off by 50+ hours to the target to receive bonus. Do I say something about being ineligible for the bonus or let it slide since it’s a big gap?

Does anyone here have experience working as a PM for a non-profit? I have an interview with one that I would love to be a part of. I can’t find much information online regarding salary expectations. I am willing to take a pay cut to join a non-profit I am passionate for. That being said - I’m trying to balance knowing it may be lower with not accepting a low-ball offer due to lack of information.
