Just moved to a FAANG as a Program Manager and feel like all the real work is done by Consultants and all I am doing is managing them, connecting folks with the right people, project management and some strategic input.

But, when I was in Consulting, I felt like I was bullshitting and the real work was done by PgM and PMs.

Is this normal? I have no idea if this is how it is.

Lol rant. I created a draft deliverable today and sat on an hour long call where 3 male managers talked non stop and picked it apart. I guess I shouldn't have gotten attached to it but there's something emotionally exhausting about producing something you're semi-proud of, to have them tear it apart without even letting you have a word in edgewise. I totally understand the client having feedback but there was something so uncomfortable about being talked over and torn apart.

Last min requests for proactive decks to show the client ‘we’re doing stuff’ that have to be worked on over the weekend only to be not used the following week are really getting to me.

It’s a wonderful way to let employees know you don’t care about them while having mandatory meetings so the company can tell employees how much the agency cares about them.

What are you guys having more success with these days during remote work - hourly, day, weekly or project rates? I find myself billing less than 30 hrs a week but then working a lot - taking new biz calls, admin, switching back and forth btw clients, etc. Anyone else going through this?

Sometimes I think back to the time I got yelled at by a client contact for asking one of their direct reports a question, and visualize punching them in the face and walking out.

We don’t even have enough subs for how many teachers are out right now. I love being at school, but this feels too much. On top of everything our paid covid days have decreased. I’m so confused about everything. 😣
