This whole thing is tough on all of us where the expectation is “business as usual.” It’s very hard to find the headspace to fully digest what’s happening in the world right now. Companies should be prepared to lose a little money this quarter and relax the frantic push for relevancy, consider it an investment in your people.

I’m my partners only associate and I went on parental leave two weeks ago. I feel horrible for leaving him to handle our cases alone, but am trying to focus on my wife and new baby. That being said, should I still offer to handle minor matters that come in to ease the workload off my boss? He’s been super cool during my entire leave, so I don’t feel pressured to one bit.

Hey fishes,

Is it okay to take a work load even if you’re placed on admin charge codes and not allocated to projects?

I am 40 this year and just made director. Was in industry for 8 years, post MBA but never joined strategy, a mistake for the short run In hindsight. Need advice on if it’s too old to make EP at some point. I am in Canada so it’s a longer path. Am I too old? Also - how do I skip income partner, seems most companies are pushing most folks to go through IP to goto EP. Real advice and thoughts would be welcome.
