Check out the highlights here on Youtube:
Is it ok for me to work after hours?
“What is the best etiquette to display in this situation? I am being paid by the hour, and my manager confirms the hours on my invoice. However, right now I am practicing and working off hours. She can see changes being made to documents and some of the internal work I am doing. I don’t want her to think I am working under nose and expect to be paid for working outside the office. Should I let her know that I was studying up on my own time?”
Managers not on the same page
“Right now the management at my job is very much not on the same page about anything, and there is some open conflict that that affects how we (all the non-management employees) do our job. It’s difficult to not only continually take non-constructive criticism from four different bosses who all have different and uncommunicated expectations, but then to also watch my coworkers be treated genuinely unfairly. Most of them are making the best decisions they can based on the limited amount of information they have.Is there anything a lowly non-management employee can do to make things less sucky?”
