Have a long term client where there has been a change of guards -a new Director of IT.
February 18,2023 at 3:12PM UTC
I am a subcontractor for a consulting firm. Advised the owner of the consulting company (a woman) for which I am employed that the new Director of IT has different expectations and requested a zoom meeting. He said in an email " I have had consulting in my remit for over 20 years and this is not an effective or tenable approach" What does he mean by "my remit"? I scheduled the meeting.
Looking for your input on the following: We have not met the new Director. I am the person who has been communicating with him via email.. Note: the client has been paying our invoices... so all good there... he wants us to provide information differently. I send several emails to him regarding contracts with vendors that will expire and needs his attention so the rates are not renewed at the current contract rate or to higher rates. He mentioned a "Dashboard" . Currently the information is provided in Excel spreadsheets or emails Need your input on the following: 1) Does the Dashboard makes sense or do you have other suggestions ? 2) Do you think it makes sense to show him the reports I prepare and ask him what he is looking for? Thank you so much for your input... You are always so helpful!

I interviewed with a company where I hit it off with the hiring manager.
She said she was excited about my candidacy and passed me on to the next series of rounds. I made it to the final round. All of the interviews went well. I sent thank you notes. The hiring manager said I should hear from someone within the week. A week went by and I didn't hear anything. I saw the position reposted on Linkedin. I reached out to inquire about the status of my candidacy and so far have not received a response. It seems to me if they reposted the position then they have passed on me. I just assumed they would send the standard rejection email. I appreciate your thoughts.

Make sure you’ve identified the key competencies required for leadership positions within your organization.
Some common competencies include strategic thinking, decision-making, influencing, communication and adaptability. Why? Because you’re being assessed against specific competencies to determine your potential to develop and excel in higher roles.
Be certain that you are not only a woman who is a
high performer, but that you are also showing up as a woman who can be categorized as high-potential talent.

So, I work for three very controlling and erratic bosses.
Everyone is always on guard for what will happen to me next, very chaotic. I have an opportunity to potentially switch departments but I know if I go down this road, they will sabotage me. My friend who is trying to steal me wants me to give a presentation for her department so that her boss can see my skills before I apply. Problem is, how do I tell my manager or do I just do it and beg forgiveness. She will be angry when she finds out but if I ask she’ll likely say no..

My company just offered a voluntary transition program for individuals in my group(over 1,000 people) an option to voluntarily separate with a lucrative payout if you started with the firm/group prior to January 1, 2022.
I know many people who started in December 2021 so they qualify by a few weeks and I started mid January so I don’t qualify by a few weeks. How is this legal ? They should have offered this voluntary package to all of us, right ?

I have a wonderful coworker (Supervisor) that I have worked with for 2 years.
She is a hard worker, never calls in and always goes above and beyond to get the job done. She has amazing performance reviews and has never had an issue with management or other employees.
Our company requires a background check before an employee can start. Apparently our old General Manager did not process her background check and just allowed her to start. She had a run in with the law in 2011 and was convicted in 2018. Once she was allowed to work she assumed the company didn't care about the conviction. There was not a question asking "have you ever been convicted of a felony", so she did not falsify any information. She turned her paperwork in like she was supposed to.
Fast-forward to the current day.... the company realized that her background was never processed and she is now awaiting the results. Her fear is that the background check could cause her to lose her job.
Isn't it the companies responsibility to make sure all of the employees background checks are processed? Should the burden fall back on the employee? ANY advice for her would be helpful.
