Got a client solutions role at Facebook but also a strategy & product analytics opp at NYT. If strategy & product is end goal, is NYT a better choice? Scared to give up FAANG
Why do senior level account and sales people pile on to client meetings and pitches when they only emcee the meeting or even worse don’t say anything. It’s ok if it’s just one key relationship lead, but there’s like 5 of them every meeting. I thought participation points were for millennials but I guess older folks are now going after them too?

EY 🐠 I have been told that my service line wants to put me on a project where I’ll need to be onsite for a few months. This is my first engagement at EY where I need to travel to the client site...

How can I be a role model for my bright eyed staff when I myself am burned out, unmotivated, and generally miserable in this role? Hard not to let show the emotional toll the stress has taken on me.
I'm tired of virtual happy hour, team building, etc I didn't like small talk in person and I certainly don't like it online lol I just want to do my job and then turn my computer off ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Currently designing a new online portfolio, but actively applying for jobs. Is it strange to put something in a banner at the top my current site to stay tuned a new portfolio is coming soon?
I just started as a first year associate two months ago. If layoffs happen, am I going to be the first one out?
Please explain the difference between wanting or feeling entitled to a promotion and actually deserving one. There's no such thing as a ribbon for participation in the real world.

I just became manager to 2 people on my team. But no promotion, title change, or salary bump. They said I need to prove myself and it will be factored in during annual reviews. Is that typical or BS?

I have an engineering degree/technical background but due to some reorg changes I’ve been aligned with marketing. Is this something that’s inconsistent with my skill set? Or is the role of marketing..
Client has checked out and dropped all execution on us. We can handle this. What we can't handle is the extra scope that arose yesterday and is due by eoy. How do I get my sm to understand this?
