Welcome to an age old consulting debate: pmo in excel or project. Often times a manager will request switching between both, and some may even ask to do it all in ppt with complicated Gantt chart slides. There is actually no right answer. In fact, many would say they are all wrong.

What @pwc1 said. All options suck. Just choose the path of least resistance.

Or build a link for your MSP file to Power BI for awesome charts / dashboards and bypass excel completely (if that's all ur doing)

The mapping and export in MSP is a nightmare. Hope the copy paste worked for u.

If you plan to leave your firm and your manager asks you why you're leaving, what do you say? I have a legitimate non-bridge-burning reason unrelated to comp or simply "big tech is better" reason. I have asked for more client facing exposure and haven't gotten it cause weird reasons, which was the factor that caused me to look for exits in the first place. But I'm not sure if I should bring this up. Should I just be vague and say "looking for a new chapter"?

I can’t wait to be back on the creative side of the world.

My PM went on leave for 5 weeks, so I was asked to backfill. I was told there would be additional resources brought in and there wasn’t, so I’m doing multiple peoples job. Things came to a head with the client and I expressed concerns to my manager that I was overwhelmed. Multiple days went by and things got worse. It came to the point that I was in severe mental distress. Now, my manager barely acknowledges me and I feel like it’s my fault for not being able to manage. Did I mishandle this?
