Thanks. Fairly similar then but get the impression my team over recruited. Two of us are basically doing the work of one person.. having to split one basic slide between us at times lol

funny

It’s very rare that teams recruit exactly to demand - projects vary, people delay starting, holidays come up etc. Wouldn’t sweat it. However, doesn’t hurt to go and mention to your team lead that you have a bit of extra capacity and you’re happy to take on more. Just make sure you’re nailing the easy stuff first!

Hello 🐠, I have been on a project that I do not like, has absolutely obliterated my work life balance, and put me under a lot of stress.

My current project leadership knows the date I’m set to roll off, but have been hinting they won’t let me leave because I’m good at my job. I am so desperate to leave and have been advised by multiple colleagues to do so. What do I do??
