Worth the jump? Any thoughts/comments are appreciated!
I’m working with a client who doesn’t have a lot of production experience. We shared the treatment of our reco director and they’re asking to see all other treatments before reviewing the reco. I’ve never had this happen. Has anyone had to share treatments with clients for all bidders? I’m worried they will choose a treatment we aren’t aligned with creatively.
Partners - are any of you actually slightly insecure? Do you actually embody the confidence you project or do you mask yourself with it?
I just had one of the worst melt down in my life (to the point I srsly thought about self-harm) and thinking maybe I need to step away for two days to recover. I have a client that files on Thursday so the ddl is coming up. I’m thinking of trying to push through my task today and asking for Monday and Tuesday off. Does that sound reasonable? I’m just a staff and I don’t know how to properly communicate this to senior and manager without sounding like I’m trying to slack
Hello all, need some advice. Am currently working for a government consulting agency, but wishing to leave due to the way the project is being managed...I am in at least 4-5 hours of meetings a day, so barely have time to prepare for demos, preparation of slides for the client, nevermind being able to write decent stories(tickets)... Usually have to rush writing requirements, steps, etc, ...
So I have been looking around.

Hey everyone - I could do with some advice. Not sure what I am doing wrong, but I am having a hard time getting interview calls. I am trying to pivot from consulting to the industry and targeting project/program management roles. I have been doing this work for 7+ years now (total YOE 12 years) so certainly have the right skillset. I have tried a couple of referrals too but that didn’t help either. Any advice you guys could provide would be helpful. Thanks!

Thoughts on leaving in the middle of a messy client? I just got an offer and they are moving quickly.

“Do you guys wanna see me eat pizza?”
Is this normal? My colleague pops into the online document I’m working on (and honestly not their business to keep up with) every single time I make an edit. They pop in and watch my work. Every. time. I thought it was ok until I started working odd hours and they would still open the document. I’m talking past midnight. Mysteriously, every time I’m working in there, they also decide to join in and watch and watch me work. It’s so awkward and peak micromanager level stuff. WTF is going on?

So, some of my co-workers simply said that they want to go ahead and start something or start looking elsewhere (career change) because they don't know how much it will last at the pace we are going in regards to case intake and pay out. Should I start panicking or simply start looking elsewhere? They even they even told me if I was looking elsewhere or planned on doing so also. I found it weird in a way.

🚨😳 Overheard in the Confessions bowl: My spoiled wife sleeps EVERY day when our kids nap. On the days she misses her nap she makes it a point to let me know. Imagine being in your 30s and being able to nap every day, never have to do any cleaning or laundry (I got her a maid AND a nanny) and can basically buy whatever you want. No wonder she's always bored and borderline out of her mind. She's gonna get a wake up call pretty soon...
