Im a second year analyst. It used to be about 80% until the first year analyst joined a few weeks ago. Delegated work appropriately.

I was going to make a joke about how high the percentage is, but it’s a for real thing. Without exaggeration, my last role it was easily 70%.

0. I make sure the delivery person does that.

Can you explain? Currently in industry and interested in moving to consulting [if I can avoid being just a status chaser]

As much as needed to allow teams to operate on clear agreement and ownership.

I need advice. I've been in manufacturing for 22 years. I left my company after 21 years because I thought I was burnt out of my company. I went to another manufacturing plant that has similar pay/benefits. My new company treats me well but I get irritated quickly and I'm really thinking I'm burnt out of the industry. I'm 41 and don't know what to do? Is it too late to get out of manufacturing and start over. I'm a project manager. I would love advice. I really think my passion is gone.

I’m talking about more production-oriented tools.

Any advice regarding leading a mid-level male team that simply will not accept feedback... or being lead for that matter. It’s constant teeth pulling to get simple, effective changes made to work and they act as though any constructive criticism, is a personal attack. There’s a lack of respect and a mightier than though attitude. I always try to be as kind as possible in reviews and over email, aware of how sensitive they are. Sometimes it feels like if I had a dick, there wouldn’t be an issue.
