What do you do when the lead on the account team just plain gives up and you just know in your gut this account is at a pivotal crossroads?

What if you can't escalate it? What if you're too senior to escalate? How do you step in without your fellow leader not getting in your way? (Asking for a smaller/indie shop).

@ED1 I think it would depend on your relationship with them and, perhaps more importantly, the client. If you’re stuck with the fellow leader, and there’s no escalation point, you need to have a serious conversation and hash it out. Or step on in, if you’re well positioned to with the client, and apologize later (or don’t. 🔥)

I'll bet you 100 completely imaginary dollars that the account is not at a pivotal crossroads. Never forget, NOBODY outside that building cares about what you're working on at all. They just want to know if it's on sale. Try to keep some perspective. Make sure you have a few friends you dont work with. Watch some TV, go swimming or something. Get a little WLB happening.

If it’s truly a crossroads, and you have specific examples, escalate it if you like your gig :) otherwise, 🏃‍♀️

In addition to Herman Cain, the founder of Turning Point USA died of coronavirus this week. Every life lost matters, but hopefully theirs can matter more by helping people that still see this as a political issue realize it isn't.

Platinum Elite here, do you all just ask if any upgrades are available or rely on the front desk agent to upgrade you? I feel like a d-bag asking.

I realize it's just a TV show and that there are MBB/IB levels of boring hours in law, but how accurate is the good wife at portraying various aspects of the legal life, such as interactions within the law firm, interactions in the court room, etc. I've always reaally liked law. I've represented myself in and won several court cases. Spent hours studying state law to craft my case. Got a huge kick out of it. My verbal reasoning has always been better than quant too, GRE 329 (169V/160V) 5.5 AWA

I really like the idea of doing circles in the classroom to build relationships in the class. Any suggestions on how to do this without having to move the desks? I have 25+ students in each class.

Hi ladies! I am seeking advice as I am torn between between prepping and applying to MBA or FAANG jobs. I currently am at 4.5 YOE, 150K base, engineering manager. My network has advised that an MBA can help pivot careers as I’m exploring content strategy (Netflix). One of my goals is to also work in London. I will add that there is an expectation in my family for higher education and candidly, my longer term goal is a CXO position. Thank you!

I’m finding that a weird side effect of losing my job in this climate is ad agencies taking advantage of my weakened position. They get in touch, proactively or in response to my reaching out, and they want to hire me as they are in good shape. When I reveal I was laid off, the offer changes to freelance or maybe nothing. My work, awards, the fact that they know me and approached me in the first place should be enough. I don’t want to lie about my situation. Any ideas how to avoid this?

Any thoughts on shifting 401k contributions from traditional to Roth with the new tax code changes? I'd imagine a lot of us benefit from lower tax brackets in 2018.
