What do you do when your partner tries to go rogue in a presentation? Trying to present something that was killed in the last round.

You talk to them after as respectfully as possible and just ask that you guys agree on things before going in. And if you can't agree then you ask that they make it clear to your CD that this is something THEY care about so that you don't get burned in the process. Make it less about criticizing them and more about working as a team. And when teamwork fails ask them to be honest to your bosses in your presentation.

Yeah, I see that sometimes and I ask if they both like this idea and when they can't defend it it exposes the weakness in the idea so it becomes moot and rarely happens again.

Ha! I saw a copywriter do that once. The concept was very controversial, and the idea bombed. Nevertheless, he wasn't fired, but I'm sure he was reprimanded.

Hahah @CD1.

Yes, his idea was basically killed by our CD. He presented the same idea to our ECD a week later, as though our CD didn't know what he was talking about.

Oh man, that just reminded me that a PM once left his man juice all over someone's keyboard and Didn't get fired. Amazing.

Was the idea amazing?

No! It was obvious he was trying to speak to the "idea" the feature and a joke. Like, what? It was terrible and didn't even make sense.

Heard that, @LB.

I have been offered a promotion with my company. With my current role, I have a salary and am overtime eligible. YTD I have already worked enough overtime to essentially be a 5% raise, and am on track for just as much OT for remainder of year (expected 10% by end of year). The promotion is only offering a 6% raise from my base salary and loses overtime eligibility while taking on much more work. They will not negotiate for higher. How do I politefully handle this?
