What do you do when your leader fails to inspire or motivate your team, but expects you and everyone to over deliver and sacrifice free time to your work?

That’s unfortunately a common theme at 72. Do what you can to benefit you. Or find a new gig.

Try having a one-on-one with your leader. Tell them how you feel. If that doesn't shift things a bit then see if you're even into that project/brand? Maybe it's time to switch teams? Also, start setting boundaries for the sake of work/life balance despite what everyone says. Give your work a 100% when you're at work, be available when your team needs you, but say no to staying late or working every weekend just because it's 72 or "how the industry works".

Sounds very familiar. But Sapient1 I did work with some amazing leaders before. Now I don't even get a "good job" or "hey you can go home after the meeting. you have been working a lot lately". He's always looking at you like you haven't done enough and you should be glad that you work for someone like him.

Media Strategist 1, no.

And OP, you either stay because you love the people and the work you’re making or you learn an important lesson and go interview for your new boss.

Very familiar. Very familiar indeed.

Omg 72 sucks

Need for travel has been one reason why some of our jobs could not be outsourced to remote delivery & low cost off-shoring. If travel is fully or >50% eliminated, it can be a real threat to management consulting as we know it. So there needs to be an “optimal ratio” of travel to client locations, home office, and WFH, to protect our consulting models. Since we need some face time with clients, and some interaction with colleagues, the optimal balance should be possible. Share your thoughts.

Especially in advertising, which is f’n shallow, meaningless, and self-obsessed. I’m quitting when we get back. Long overdue. Advertising won’t miss me.

How do you approach giving feedback to your boss who is not great at managing, but became your friend? I’ve been in this situation twice. Both times required me to escalate it to their bosses (direct feedback didn’t work or wasn’t an option), but I was afraid to shatter our friendship this way because it would’ve been obvious that I told on them. I’m still good friends with both, and while I no longer work with them, I still wouldn’t bring myself to tell them.

Started a new job a few months ago (remote for now). I'd consider myself a friendly person, but it's been really tough fitting in. I can't seem to get in on the camaraderie. And even worse, it seems like my CD and I are always on the wrong page/he seems unhappy with my work, my comments and even my questions. Trying my best here. Working long hours, but...I'm at a loss.

Has anyone successfully settled into a job while remote? I sincerely welcome advice here.
