This guy on my team keeps talking over me in meetings, and not over anyone else. I talked to him in person once about it, and he apologized saying he wasn’t aware he was doing it. Today in meeting, he

Was there anyone else in the room from the team that noticed and can bring it upto him. Preferably higher level than both of you? Sometimes it is more effective to have people fight these battles for you, ie if it is noticeable to others than it’s not just you raising this up.

If not, my suggestion would be to not let him do this the next time. Asking somebody to stop doing something is not as effective as just not letting them do it - “be there first” approach.

Next time, say, Bob, give me just a minute to finish this thought and then I will pass it to you. Smile.


Yes. He needs to learn! He probably has no clue he is doing it. But cluelessness isn’t a solid excuse for assholery.


Don’t know if this will work for you but I just kept talking and raised my voice a bit.


Completely talked over me about something I taught him yesterday and did not give me any credit. I’m thinking of emailing him saying that it’s disrespectful and we need to figure out how to work better together. Is that a good idea?


Just talk over him. Or make a slight joke and be like “can I finish speaking ?” *wink*. Usually I’m incredibly sassy and bitchy at work so this method usually works. Assholes are usually easy to shut down once you play their game


great advice here. But how do you deal with him taking credit for work you’ve done? Especially if he brought it up first/ you weren’t speaking so he didn’t interrupt you?


I would email the deliverable that you worked on to your manager or whoever you want to prove to and ask if they can provide feedback on your work. That way they know you did the work and they also see that you are looking for feedback which is always a good thing


Thanks everyone for your advice! They’re very helpful! Very grateful for this community

Wouldn’t email personally. Don’t imagine it would do any good. Agree with partner 1s approach

Thanks C2! That’s a great point!

I am entertaining an enterprise account executive position at SHI International. It seems like a decent job in regards to pay, but I looked up the company on Glassdoor and they get crushed for work life balance. Most say it’s a spot to get your feet wet in tech sales and get out. Anyone have experience with SHI that they can share? Do they have good culture? Is it really only 12 days pto for the year? I also saw company only matches 2.5k 401k…is that true? Any insight is greatly appreciated.

One of my favorite things about working from an office is that my team has a strong emphasis on collaboration and communication—we have daily stand-ups and weekly meetings where everyone on the team gets together to talk about what everyone's working on. That's definitely made it easier to stay motivated throughout the week.

Has anyone here participated in the year long remote year program? My company is fully remote in the US and is in general supportive of me going but concerned about local and international tax liability. Remote year doesn’t share tax advice and our HR team is small. Curious to hear from people at companies who have done it before and if there were any issues from a tax or payroll perspective. Trying to get the formal approval from my company before officially signing up, advice welcome!
