Where do you draw the line between sexism and being old-fashioned? I’m a young female on a mostly male defense project and one of the older men always opens car doors for me, refuses to let me hold a door or drive anywhere, and seems to strongly believe in traditional gender roles in his own family. I believe he thinks this is being respectful, but it rubs me the wrong way.

Hi ladies. I work in IT consulting and we don’t typically have to put notes in for billable hours, but a few weeks ago my boss asked me to start entering notes, about what exactly I was working on for client A,B,and C. I just said sure and didn’t ask why. I found out today from other colleagues that no one else was asked to enter notes in for their time. What’s a good way to ask my boss why the new change? I’d at least like to know if I did something wrong so I can improve.

I heard a news about few people who are in bench were laid off recently. Is it true? Anyone heard about this? One of my friend's friend who is around 2 years was laid off.

Please confirm if anyone heard this type of news.

What would you do if your manager keeps lashing out at you and always apologizing later? The Director tells me to bare with him because he suffers from PTSD from active duty. I think the company doesn’t want to let him go to be carefully legally but I can’t take it anymore. I’ve saved two emails of his apologies and asked for a project transfer. Nothing
