I’ve been at a new firm for a couple of months and feel incompetent half the time when I’m explaining something to my new boss. I’m a third year and am usually confident in my abilities, but I feel like a first year again and I’m unsure if it’s the new more specialized practice area, being uncomfortable in a firm where I’m the new kid, or if I’ve regressed practically. Someone tell me the discomfort of being new wears off semi-quickly.

I want to crawl into a hole and hide after every meeting.

After I leave Zoom, I'm left alone with my thoughts and all I can do lament about how I talked too much, too little, said the wrong thing, laughed inappropriately, and how everyone probably hates me because of The Way I Am and I'm on the verge of getting fired.

I have an supportive team and boss but I can't help thinking everyone is silently judging me and talking about how awful I am behind my back.

I’m in my first role in industry as a PM and I’ve noticed a few strange setups in my company:
- Our business analysts have extremely high decision making power. They sit on dev teams and accept/reject features from product (me)
- Dev team does a poor job of articulating challenges of a design approach. They push back without proper justification. Feels like when they push back, it’s more of a directive than a discussion
- Dev teams work with 2-3 PMs simultaneously so prioritizing is tricky

I feel like I always do the absolute most for my family only to be shit on. I'm the one who purchased the most extravagant gifts and I put so much thought into them and I end up getting yet another oil diffuser and some socks. It's not even about the money spent. I would be perfectly happy with a good book. But just the lack of thought and then being put down for other things just a few hours after they've all opened the gifts I got for them. It is really disheartening and hurts me a lot.

Moved to a larger team and my new boss keeps cutting off my suggestions at the knees in front of people and it's super embarrassing and demoralizing.

She says no bc: budget could blow up. But, my strategy assumes it's in budget otherwise I wouldn't have suggested it.

I prioritize being in close proximity to family and friends, living in a city and having a successful career. My significant other wants to travel and experience living in a different state/country for an extended amount of time a year (& most likely not in a city).

Ladies, how would you have responded? I was hanging out with a friend and her boyfriend when he suddenly goes “Now that all companies practice gender equality what is the need for women specific conventions like Grace Hopper. What if there were male specific conventions/conferences like that? How would that make you feel? “ I was very drunk and not proud of how I responded. I basically told him off and recounted all the instances where I have been at a disadvantage because of my gender.

All the DE&I talk... I’m hoping for some perspective.

Chatted with a trusted SM colleague (white, male). He said he doesn’t see a path forward for him because our leadership ranks are all male and mostly white. I told him it’s interesting because that’s also how I feel because I don’t see myself represented there (minority, woman).

He proceeded to tell me not to get him wrong, but that I will get there because we need women in leadership. He told me he knows I’ll get there because I’m smart...
