My goal role in 5 years let’s say is Chief People Officer / People & Culture Director, etc.
My background is 12+ years in customer/client experience, coaching, sales, and account management. I’m finishing a Lv7 executive coaching course and starting a CIPD Lv5 people management course.

Any recommendations on a dual laptop bag or backpack ? Have to carry a client and company
I’m stressed about starting my new job. I’m at 2.5 YOE in consulting and wanted to leave because of salary. I’m going to join FB as a client solutions partner and they doubled my salary but the role isn’t what I want. I don’t want to do sales but strategy/product. I’m now having stress nightmares that I sabotaged my career and now I’m getting interview requests for roles that are more my liking. Should I renege? I won’t be miserable but I’m worried about future career steps

Team, need assistance on how to handle additional non billable work request from client after completion of a 6m assignment. Trick is director/partner either support the request or turn a blind eye.
Thoughts from seniors/partners would be appreciated. I'm the senior in my team & have a junior that is actively pushing people out of the team to better position themselves. The junior's now convinced 2 associates to leave in just as many months and is strongly pushing another out (admitted to convincing them that the team/partner is toxic, PE is not for them, even making referrals to other firms). Should I say something to the partner? What can actually be done, if anything?
Have a new career counselor (old one left). How should I approach telling him about my story so far in my current firm. Particularly I have had a less flattering performance review in my last project and currently stuck on a project that I'm just coasting. I'm worried about oversharing especially cause I do not know the guy yet.

Client team and our designers got into a shouting match today during final review of the deliverable (client started it). Is it too much to ask that people be professional at the office- ugh.
You’re given a brief for an OOO campaign. Could be cool. How many days are you given before you have to show concepts to the ECD? And to the client? Curious about time expectations at different places.

Monday and not even noon and I am so exhausted I just want to lie down. Toddler woke me up at two am and I basically couldn’t fall back asleep after that because I was so stressed about the week. MDP came back from a week of vacation and had a bunch of things he didn’t like and chewed me out about this morning. I just feel super over it all. Hard to imagine continuing in this business. Those who have left for corporate work do you find it less stressful, more sustainable?

Next week FAANG earnings begin with NFLX and following 2 weeks all the big boys go. Are earnings going to be catalyst for next leg up or next leg down? I don’t think better than expected works anymore like it did in the summer. ￼ One thing to note though all the major tech companies but Apple are trading below where they did at Q3 earnings.

Is it a wise career decision to go from a national firm to a local but strong firm? Practiced with the national firm for a year and a half. The firms are the same type of law, but the smaller firm has less billable requirements and is offering higher salary/better bonus structure as well as more independence such as ability to completely run own case load.

How many of you have had to curse out our Millennial/Gen-Y friends about calling us old and inept. ￼
Yesterday my younger brother called me looking for good hidden swimming spots in the mountains. He was up there with a bunch of friends and their original plans had fallen apart hard. And I go much more often than he does.
I told him I had map pins that are EXACTLY what you need for these hard to find places. I can send them in 10 mins when I get home.
Reply? Forget it, I'm all set.
Yep, 10 mins is too long. Here I was expecting "Wow! That's fantastic!" How silly of me.
My observation is that it is hard for consulting partners to land the quality public or private board roles everyone naturally targets. Despite there being a significant amount of exceptional talent that could be deployed, there is a big bias against consultants. Everyone wants “operators,” but I feel every board could also benefit from one current or former consulting partner. But sadly, that’s not the way the external world looks at things...
