I am so sad on my project right now. There’s so much bureaucracy and I’m stressed all the time. My client is a handful and everyday my program manager has to baby him so he doesn’t throw a fit. I feel so depressed and hopeless because I know I’ll be on this project for the foreseeable future. I’ve only been on it for 2 months - so prob too early to switch anyways. I know I should be grateful to be working and making money but I need advice on not getting too down or depressed about work. Advice?

This pandemic has been bad. Disrupted (prevented) exercise routine due to living circumstances and health reasons, my interpersonal skills at work have been dulled significantly. Like everyone else, there was a lot of disappointment with raises, promos etc. I'm on rejection number 17 for exit opps in the last three months as of today. I feel like a broken person. So much stress would be relieved with a new role and a little raise. What's next?

I was offered an Assistant GC position inhouse at a prestigious company in my field but the role is primarily a contract review one (as part of a contract review team). The job seems stable, benefits good, hours good, and pay is what I expected for NYC in-house market. I’m worried about long term growth though. Are contract positions dead-ends or can I eventually lateral to Associate GC position that covers more ground? Help!
Do you think we can expense our tickets to The Accountant? Looks educational and groundbreaking for the practice.
I *think* Accenture is doing it right with regards to expenses. Overall, pretty relaxed with the perdiem and other expense policies in comparison it seems. That's actually a huge deal.
