Trust me, I know what you all are referring to. I had over 70 properties under myself. These properties had different management agencies and different investors etc... Some investors want to review the draft FS and some didn’t care. Each property had it’s own agreements, with different waterfalls. Confirming mortgages etc takes a lot , we even had to get creative. To be successful I had to have an excellent tracker. I totally get it, I am just stating that it’s not the same. I am not under estimating the work that you all do, by far that’s not what I meant. I am just saying it’s not the same. It’s like comparing apples and strawberries.

I was juggling 4 clients at one point this busy season, same rank as you. Feeling overwhelmed is an understatement... Spoke up, two things happened: One SM told me that I would have to do this as a manager anyways and I just need to put up with it for a little bit. One didn't say anything to me personally but knew what I was dealing with and worked with scheduling to reduce some of my hours, and another just listened to my complaints and told me that next time I should speak up sooner if I think it's too much. Be honest with yourself, see if you can think of some way you can do it. Push down to staff as much as you can and communicate in email to hold them accountable. Good luck, message me if you need to vent.

AA1 but you also need to know that many manager are just addressing questions, meetings all day long and just work after everyone is gone or at home...you are working on addressing you vouching issues and the manager the issue reneged to be the partner admin

I’m in the same boat, juggling three clients and already interviewing so I can get out this summer. I feel like I’m stagnating this busy season and not getting anything meaningful out of it that I didn’t already get last year. I’m kicking myself for not leaving last summer.

Cont.... successful. When talking to my manager he said they put me in that position because they knew I could handle it! Wtf clearly not. Does anyone else think this is fair/ normal for a senior to juggle 2 jobs at the same damn time during busy season?

Look at the budget and how much time you are put you in for. If someone in your role previously was budgeted at 50% each and was eating time you got screwed. If they both had you down at 100% then you were double staffed. Start with each and the amount budgeted and work it from there. The first scenario happened to me when the senior who got promoted would just eat time and she told me that after I took over as senior

It’s definitely not normal on my jobs unless you’re the lead senior and we’ve had discussions around how we manage your time/expectations. And max would be a 50/50 split not multiple jobs at once. Unfortunately looking at the comments above it seems to be a frequent thing to overload people

Green comms/media planner here. So far, this job seems like it's 90% answering emails and tracking invoices. Is that really the extent of this role? Or am I missing something here?

I'm going through a layoff at my job. I was a programmer many years ago and have gradually moved to a Project Management role over the years. I don't really like that kind of work and see an opportunity here to reskill a bit. What are thoughts on microdegrees or certificates from the like of Coursera? I have good tech acumen, just wondering if someone would hire in the area of Data Science with one of these degrees. For info: 40s, 20+ years experience, and BBA in Computer Info Systems.

T14 JD in Consulting: If a person gets a T14 JD, then goes to a smaller consulting firm where he/she gets no bump in pay for the JD, if that person can later get an offer from a top consulting firm where they pay the higher rates for MBA over no-MBA with same position, should the person with the JD get that post MBA rate, standard no mba rate, or some rate in between no MBA and MBA? (To be clear, this is a person who never did big law or anything, just T14 then small consulting firm)

Another laid off case here. Anyone moving out of US considered keeping the 401K as is instead of withdrawing? Any pros / cons to keep in mind ? Pro I see is no penalty and the fact that it'll continue to grow till I turn 65. Con is that it's a decent size amount in my case and I might need some if that cash if I don't get a job soon 🙄
