Hi fishes!

I am seeing too many post about awards like rising star, Kudos, etc. People keep telling there managers recommended them for these awards.
My manager doesn't interact much with us. I consider myself as some one who has worked hard for project and other intiatives. Should I ask my manager to consider me and if yes how should I initiate it.
Part of MC team.

Thank you.

I’ve been working with a founder/small biz freelancing as their digital producer for a little bit. I’m having issues lately because they won’t give me a budget for content they want to make for their site/Instagram. I’m worried with the budget gate keeping that we’re going to burn bridges with contacts, especially now that we’re dipping into my personal contacts for content collaboration. Is this normal? How do I get them to give me a budget to work from?

For those who have transitioned to industry, do you view your manager the same way you would your military officer?

I’m fairly young (30) for a Sr Mgr at a major defense contractor, and I have a new employee who’s a navy reservist. Recently, I asked him to do something he forgot to do, and he responded: “my mistake, sir. I have no excuse, sir. I will take care of that now. I apologize and it won’t happen again”.

I know he’s being respectful with the “sir”, but the formality is just so new.

Is it just me, or is it common for former union bosses who go into corporate management to have an inherent inclination try to treat their employees the same way they would treat their employer in their previous role? Anyone else have a similar experience?

Sales assistant at a drug/grocery store. The manager thinks my coworker does great work but I've seen her putting out new products without rotating stock (so the oldest food will be sold first) and we are always supposed to check the dates when shelving new things. The problem is, I don't really get along with this coworker and I think it's noticeable to management. If I bring this up with our supervisor, are people going to think that I'm just trying to sabotage my coworker so that I will look better than her?
