I am done with my project. Seriously. Clocking 12 hours daily and sometimes more. Told manager but he is useless. Who can we go to? The delivery time is less and burden is more. We asked for additional resource but manager is questioning our efficiency.
I am BEYOND done with my account team. Every project is a hot one, everything is a priority, everything needs to be done EOD. Then, clients expect that speed every time. It’s unrealistic. And unfair.

Anybody else find it obnoxious and really annoying when people try to demand that everyone in a zoom meeting turn their camera on?
Do people ever get caught lying about hours? I can see other associates hours, and there is one person who gets online at 10 and off by 4 but still some how manages to put 10 hrs down of billables. I work so hard just to honestly put that many hours in so it’s frustrating. Just wondering if it ever catches up to people.
During HR discussion, HR agreed to give permanent WFH but the same hasn't been documented anywhere. Should I get a confirmation before joining so policies do not change? Company: Infosys
How many others are spending Christmas eve away from home due to an incompetent manager and an unyielding client? No perspective with some people.
Someone explain the practice of sending a more junior associate an email you’ve entirely prepped and drafted and saying “please send to so and so and copy me”. Like, wut? Why don’t you just send it yourself? Honestly so obnoxious and ethically questionable tbh like okay I’m gonna bill our client for this?
I learnt digital Marketing and started Interning at this Media House in Mumbai. I am in the Paid Media Team. They paid 7k as stipend. Now they gave me an offer letter as Media Executive, the role of client coordination and basically a beginner account Manager. But they've offered a monthly salary of 12k. They said the max they can do is 15k. The problem here is, I was under the impression that Media houses generally pay higher, but 15k is too less I believe. I want to know your real thoughts

I'm not a quitter but here's the truth. We can't help companies or people who don't want help, even if they hire us.
I owe a lot of my career to the PPD on my project, but she's making me eat hours like CRAY. Worry that stirring the pot will ruin the relationship, honestly is it worth it to nurture the relationship?

New in consulting and on the beach after my first 6 month long project. Makes me wonder if I bombed it? Anyone ever had those thoughts?
