To everyone bitching on here, please remember that it is just a job. It's not the end of your life. Big 4, consulting, FS, whatever - if you're unhappy make the moves to be better. Stop being miserable today! Only you can control your happiness

I can't tell if this is supposed to be motivating or condescending 🤔

Mostly column A, been in consulting a while and worked at some shit companies/jobs and learned that people will be happy/unhappy anywhere. Gotta find the right fit for you individually

It's not all in our control you know. You know how hard it is to look for work when if your supervisor isn't in your face he's messaging you every other minute with tasks? I am considering just quitting to nothing, but would I be happy if I was worrying about rent?

Agreed, stuff can screw you hard sometimes and I've been there. My point is, don't let yourself be continually miserable, everyone has rough weeks/months but don't let a silly job ruin your well being. Stick it out if you can but if you're truly unhappy do yourself a favor and gtfo

What would it take for us to become unionized? When will we push for this? We need unions to protect our hours or demand overtime pay for time over 60 hrs a week. What do you think, or know that's in the works?

How do you legally handle having your plan time taken for the 4th week in a row? Each day each week,, an announcement comes on saying it has been canceled and we have to keep our students.

I have a union position as a therapist. My management kept telling me "we're working on it" when I asked about a raise since getting my LPC. Our union contract does not renew until 7/1 of next year. I brought this to my supervisors attention and now the director emails me to say basically "yes, we are working on a raise but nothing can happen until 7/1/2022". Has anyone else had this experience? Of management being vague and just stringing people along?
