The number of apps/utility tools we’re using is ridiculous. I probably spend an hour of my day just reading Basecamp 2, Basecamp 3, Wrike, Microsoft Teams, and slack notifications

Right now I’m salty AF towards all these apps, and I’m sure Wrike is useful for some projects, but we’re only using it because our account people literally can’t say no to our client and adopt anything and everything to “make it easier on them” while completely fucking us. I honestly just check all of them in rotation once every 90 min otherwise I’d waste more than an hour a day trying to FIND MY WORK

It's poisonous. Last place had Google Docs, slack, Basecamp and of course, email. Despite all best intentions for each having their role, it was impossible to find a file/feedback/spec/etc.

🙌🏼 why can't we just pick 1 tool and use it properly instead of trying to use 6 really poorly

How do you like wrike? They keep reaching out to us, but I can't justify using anything other than Google docs

Hey 🐠, looking for some advice - what’s the best way to approach a conversation with a more junior team member about being out of office frequently? Since they were hired back in May they’ve taken off 1-2 days per week for various reasons (plus 1.5 weeks for vacation)… I understand that things come up, people get sick, etc. but it’s impacting delivery / I never know when they will ping in the morning and say that they won’t be in so I have to have someone else, or me, pick up the slack…

I was just offered a position with a non-profit organization. It’ll be a great transition from my current fellowship, and I’m super excited about the offer. Now here’s the catch, I haven’t accepted yet, but I am also applying for clerkship with a federal judge. If offered the judicial clerkship, I’d want to happily and eagerly accept. What is the professional way to accept the current offer and possibly leave if offered the clerkship? If it helps, this will be my second post-graduate position.
