Thought experiment for you, fishies.
Does anyone else have analysis paralysis? I overthink everything and it is affecting my billable hours. It’s only getting worse. Is this a sign of depression or something else? I have been going through a contentious divorce (final yesterday), care for a special needs child, and work is brutal and overwhelming. Any tips on how to make decisions without excessive rumination?
In my second busy season of PA (2 years ago), auditing a specialty finance company that we all quickly came to realize stunk to high hell. We ended up issuing an adverse opinion over a disagreement with the client to book an approx. 100MM write down adjustment to deferred revenue. We walked away with the thought that we had just scratched the surface of their corruption. Fast forward 2 years and low and behold they’re under a 1.2B dollar investigation by the SEC and their CEO is in prison.

Hi, I've recently been applying to a lot of tech companies in hopes of landing a more sales-orientated job. For my job, I service 200+ accounts monthly generating under half a million a year. Along with servicing the accounts I also perform the tasks of, AR collection, direct sales, generating leads, building and managing customer relationships, and also managing my client's inventory.
I've applied to a few places like HubSpot, Grammarly, and LinkedIn.
But I want to know what they look for

Seeking advice: I’m meeting my firm’s CEO and a few other C-suite execs (T2 firm) for a meeting regarding an project that I’m the main “doer” on (it’s just me, my manager, and a partner). Seeking advice on: what to wear and how to not make an absolute fool of myself.
Hi friends! I’m looking for resources to help me be successful in a “Functional Lead” role.
The role is in FinTech
I’m responsible for strategy, comms and key partnerships for a bank product. It reports through Customer Experience but touches product, Ops. marketing. It’s basically a Project Manager role but more nuanced.
Anyone out there in a role like this? Any books. videos or even best practices to share?
A pitch opportunity with a huge brand came up. My manager is asking me to put something together, but he’s insisting I use their branding all across the presentation. Is that a weird thing to do? Like he’s asking that all of the colors and fonts I use be theirs. Where do you guys stand on this kind of thing? Your own company’s branding or the client’s branding - in terms of colors and fonts…
I've become really jaded about consulting. I find all so often you need to tell the client what they want to hear to keep their business and I feel like so much of the what I recommend doesn't actually get implemented. I'm looking to make a career switch so I can both create and execute on my strategies. A product management path seems very promising for this.
Does anyone who switched from consulting to product management have any recommendations of h helpful PM books, courses, or programs?
Hi there! Recently I ve started working on a project that we require to build a CRM to improve the customer experience. The Salesforce team told us that every Salesforce instance needs a Salesforce admin. My manager asked me if I want to get Salesforce certified and become the Salesforce admin for our instance. The question is: is it worth it? In the future i see myself as a Technical Program Manager, will this certificate help me somehow long term?

Vent begins - told my manager on the project today that I am expecting and may go on maternity leave. He “informally” told me that leadership is considering me for a bigger role (which is outside my manager’s purview) on the project which they will directly communicate to me (so I am suppose to act as if I heard from them for the first time). And then he started saying how he was interested in taking up that role which requires a lot of heavy lifting but does not want to take it entirety.

First year associate, $100K base. Currently living on a $18.5K salary and investing the rest, mainly stocks in the US and some emerging economies. Any recommendations for other sources of investments? Context: I grew up in poverty in a foreigner country, parents make a combined $20K salary to this day, so I’ve never felt the need to live above my means. Coming to the US changed my life, but I still live knowing where I came from.

What does a Workday Analyst do?
I middle manage a brilliant, but self confidence lacking strategist. Today she had a camera off moment bc she got overwhelmed & asked for a min (I heard her choke up). When she came back she was embarrassed and I was like “Hey real talk, you are so smart, you ask the best questions, your insights are spot on. Your biggest weakness is letting yourself think you’re not good enough. My number one goal is to help you see what we see in you.” And then I STARTED CRYING IN MY OWN PEP TALK FOR HER. 😭

After speaking with a few headhunters and ad-specific career coaches, I realized that my best TV work gives away my age at a glance; it was shot before every device had 4K, and looks like hell in HD. I found a way to upscale the resolution to 4K with noticeably improved quality. I think the solution I found has applications beyond advertising, and I've begun up scaling older, low-res content for directors and production companies, just a few, but I think this could be my ticket out (continued)
