Of course the two men just agreed that I needed to stop being so nice, as there was any kind of way for me to win here

I've had a junior (by level but not age) client resource that has been rude and disrespectful since the day he joined a couple weeks ago. I finally had enough today and told him off in an email and called him out for his disrespectful tone and language. My director (who was also on the email) sent me a ping saying that I wasn't out of line and that it was warranted and he'll handle any reactions stemming from that exchange.

I’m heated. No concept of materiality.

*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid). I shared my target salary /lateral move & at the negotiation point, they came up slightly by way of qtrly bonus structure but also outlined path for growth incl. expected salary increases at said points.

Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??
