First year of manager is basically just being a super senior

Everything will be your fault. Senior messes up? Your fault. Billing issue? Your fault. PMD doesn’t review in time? Your fault. You’ll be managing projects all by yourself with no senior manager, or with a SM but with a lot of autonomy. Lots of selling work, BD, and understanding the business side of things.

Or they still treat you like a kid as a “super senior,” but then you weren’t ready to be promoted to begin with. I was doing all those things as a senior already.

In my opinion, it is not for the worse. It depends on the business, but it was a bit of a reality check on how an office functions.

You could certainly see the bad, but you can also see the good and the opportunities that are out there.

You also gain the perspective that some jobs within a firm are often on autopilot (audits, compliance) because the work is generally consistent year to year. Some jobs are anything but autopilot (M&A, consulting heavy groups).

You mean salary? Depending on city 100-140k

Congrats on the promotion! Great time to switch and cash up in doing so.

I am having a hard time setting a rent price for my 3 bd 1 ba in Trenton NJ.Mortgage will be around 1640. I was thinking 1750 but I’m being told that’s too high. I have been looking in the area and places are going for 1800-2000. This is my first time and don’t want to scare people away with the price. I have to mention water is included in the rent.

I have a constant unease in my mind. Whatever I do, I don't want to. It's hard to explain, but here are some examples: When I work on a project, I think about another one, or jump on another unrelated thing; When I'm watching something, I think about a thing I should be doing instead; When I do yoga, I check the time quite frequently. I feel like whatever I do, I can't immerse myself in or enjoy it. What is this? A mental disorder? I guess the Covid finally broke my mind...
