Of course it is when your Managers compensation is dependant on your production. Until you can prove production without oversight, I doubt it will stop. Life was much easier starting in the Gemini program.

You need to produce more by having more and longer non-revenue producing meetings, oxymoron. 😵🤣

Monday is a conference call with the whole district. The rest of the week is about yesterday's appointments, goals, and projections. We usually have some kind of "training" topic too. Objection resolution, four box model, DGFRT.

At least your Monday meetings don't consist of manager literally reading the memos that you're responsible to read on your own..

When your production is enough, point to it and use it as freedom leverage. If you can produce you’ll be given more autonomy. If your production is low, then you should probably stay in the meeting to learn more OR get fired up and make something happen so you don’t have to

Success equals freedom .

That's how your firm baby sits you until you are ready to be free... It's outdated and old school if you are a millennial.

Hi all, I really need some advice here, I have the feeling our company has gone a bit overboard in uploading policies. When someone starts, they have 30+ policies to read. I am a bit flustered and looking in other ways to reduce the number of documents to read, but still want everyone to be informed. Any suggestions/tips?

Hello everyone! This is my first time posting since joining this platform. I’m interested in connecting with someone who is open to HR mentoring. I’ve been in HR now for about six years and have never had a mentor. I’ve been relying mostly on SHRM and other people in the company for feedback. Even if it’s for feedback, I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?

During slow time, a manager on my team always invites people who work under him to work from his home instead of office. I don’t feel comfortable, how should I raise this concern? To who?

I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?
