With my manager our I’m effectively manager for last week and this week. And having sat in his shoes I have come to the conclusion I don’t want to become a manager. How do I walk the thin line of pretending I want to get promoted so that I do well in terms of bonus / raise but not have to go to the lengths of continuing to pretend I enjoy this responsibility while I search for a new job?

That’s the goal. Waiting for the bonus to hit and then ✌🏽

I went from being CIO in the industry to working as a client-facing subject matter expert. I was fine managing a large team but also okay without direct reports. Good luck. I wish you the best.

Why don’t you want to be manager?

Projects are shit shows where things are not communicated so I look like I have egg on my face in meetings I was presenting in but wasn’t told the full back story. Clients are so so so so annoying / idiotic. Hard to manage or game plan when you don’t know what’s going on and faking it till I make it just isn’t going to work.

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

I know we have a thread on this for MBB, but I was wondering if people could give some insight into any retention bonuses/raises/other perks like increased annual leave at their firm as a result of Covid.

The US bowls seem to be reporting large retention bonuses, so was wondering if UK is similar

Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?
