Pro tip: Outlook allows you to delay delivery for emails. Don’t be a jerk if you work on thanksgiving and you don’t need an immediate response. Delay delivery until Friday.

DGC 1, this is the jerk move I’m talking about. You think you’re doing someone a favor, but they’re going to see their work email pop up on their phone and have to spend time reading it and thinking about it.

It’s by no means a jerk move. What if someone is already working Thanksgiving and would prefer just to knock it out that day instead of also torching Friday? Who am I to make that decision for them? For the recipient that isn’t working - if he/she/they doesn’t have enough self control and boundary setting to see an email that says “no need to respond until [date]” and then let it go, they would likely benefit from some counseling.

Or just put in subject line/body “(No response needed until 11/27)” and let the recipient decide when they want to handle. Recipients need to exercise self control too.

Anyone else have someone in their life / work or personal/ who continually brags about “knowing how to set up a zoom meeting”? It’s month three of the pandemic. We all know how to set up a zoom meeting Karen.

Feeling torn. I enjoy the team that I work with and have a relatively good work-life balance. However, my compensation is below industry standard, and I don’t want to be with a technology implementation-focused firm in the long term (strategy projects are few and far between). Is there any good method to parting ways with people who have invested so much into my development without disappointing them or potentially burning bridges?

Strategy SM of one year, looking at a few Microsoft roles. 12 years of career experience plus MBA. What level is appropriate? Director or Sr. D seems appropriate, or should I target General Manager (though those don’t seem to be as available as Director level roles)? Is it harder to lateral in at GM? Better to go in at Director and get promoted to GM? Thanks!

How many consultants (perhaps at M/SM level) exited to big tech, and finds the scope of work is super insignificant & your consulting/management experience under utilized?
