When your bosses always come in late but you get to work on time. So your coworker that comes in late and stays late with them gets the glory and the promotion. 🤔

measuring yourself against others by what time you come in and leave is the wrong way to go about this, especially for a promotion. you should be asking yourself what you’re doing that makes you stand out and deserving of a promotion. politics and how well people vibe with others is going to be an issue in any workplace, so do all you can to control what you can control.

It seems like your coworker works similarly to them, so they probably jive well. I think what matters most is that you show your boss you’ll come in early and on-time when needed. If your boss gets in late, then they probably are the more night owl advertising people. I personally am that way. I know people who get in at like 830 but will be gone right at 5, which some people could say is lazy because it looks like they’re racing to leave, even though they may be logging in when they get home. I’d say know your audience. Unless you’re in account, I feel like *generally* the exact time you get in doesn’t define the way your boss sees you. Unless they’re an early riser, which sucks for a lot of ad people. Again just my opinion, and I know there’s some disagreement. (Speaking from personal experience lol)

I mean, IMO if they stay late and get their work done, then that’s the bottom line. Getting in “on time” makes sense if you leave “on time” too.

I leave on time (well, end up working from home at night). Just a bit unfair that we’re doing the same hours (actually, I’m probably doing more from home) but it appears they are working longer because they all come in late. So coworker gets their favor.

Office politics is definitely a factor. He’s a soldier that follows orders. I give thought to why we are doing things a certain way and if there’s a better way to do them

Hi everyone, I would love some help. I am a new analyst at my firm who just had a large discussion on D&I and diverse teams.

Do I raise this and the issues behind them not looking for others in supply chain with the solution leader for supplychain? Or do I just let this one go, I’m just frustrated 😕

🐠🐠 Wondering how you'd perceive a person in a C-Suite or leadership position: - typically a smooth talker - acts like he was struck by lightning when things don't go his way, though it shouldn't have been a surprise - claims to have low EQ when he causes misunderstandings, yet doesn't take action to resolve it, or get help to raise his EQ - says he doesn't know anything about current events (or ones from a few years ago) or keeps up with news because he only has Netflix, no cable & such

Hi I am having some trouble on choosing between Deloitte and PwC for a 2022 winter internship. Some pros for Deloitte include being the largest firm, and the promotion to senior being 2 years opposed to 3 at PwC. Additionally, Deloitte offers a pension and has Deloitte university. The pros of PwC include a gym in the office and a younger work force. They also give me much less of a “corporate” feel and seem to offer more flexibility. I’m wondering if anyone could give me any advice on deciding?
