Partner called me on my vacation to scold me for “not handling a deadline before leaving for vacation” for a deposition that the client didn’t want going forward with anyway. He also mentioned two other “deadlines” that I missed when in fact they were done. The depo was ultimately taken off calendar, so it was never “missed”. Partner then sent me an invite for a disciplinary meeting with him for the day I get back, again while I’m still on vacation. Any advice aside from lateraling?

Advice please! I'm scheduled to roll off my current (surge) project at the end of this month. The project is heavy in manual government processes, but my manager is offering to let me lead a workstream because our scope has grown so much and the client needs our help. However, there's another big, super relevant project where I'd get project experience doing analytics, but I likely wouldn't get ownership over anything. Do I extend my current project or try to roll onto the new one?

In the process of being promoted @B4 but I don’t like the people I work for and I’m on the project from hell.

I haven’t had much traction until this past week where I was approached by 4 recruiters with really compelling roles (including FAANG). I know it doesn’t hurt to talk to them but am I an ass for excepting the promo while continuing to look/possibly exiting in the near future?

Why do I have to work so hard every day while he gets away with scraping by and plagiarizing? How do you deal with a coworker like that?
