Surely there’s someone on your team that can help pick up some slack?

Don’t wait to let your team know. Even if it’s a heads up that you’re not feeling well and may need assistance wrapping things up

New team...just started this week... terrible first impression 😪

It is better that you take care of yourself than infect your entire team, and potentially underdeliver as well due to your sickness. One of my best team members landed in the hospital his second day out of orientation with dehydration due to food poisoning. The team was able to cover for him, and he still managed to get promoted early a few years later. This is one reason why you have a team - things happen outside your control

Yeah OP, how dare you be human and feeble! Shame on your mortal body facing sickness!

If you just started then other teammates can likely easily pick up the slack

Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?

I feel like the Senior manager has to redo all (or a lot) of my work. I’ll suggest something, they’ll modify or reject it and then make a decision. Then I’ll execute on that decision and I didn’t have the best idea and it’ll be tweaked again or something comes up and the approach didn’t actually work based on th support. I’m an A2 up for promotion so I should be performing like a new senior, but I feel like it’s clear that I’m not close. For more context, it’s a first year audit so maybe that...
