Ask a Manager

My employer wants to bring me back to work — at half my old pay. They’ve asked me to return to a 40/hour work week at a reduced rate of $13.50/hour (nearly half my prior wage), stating I’ll lose unemployment benefits if I turn them down. I work closely on a team of five.

who gets the miles for business travel, boss has one foot out the door, and more

Ask A Manager

If you travel for work, do you think it is okay to collect air miles, airline rewards points, or hotel rewards points in your personal account? I used to travel heavily for work, and always kept the air miles and hotel rewards points for myself; what do you think? So I think it’s a nice gesture to let people keep the miles and points earned from their trip, in recognition of the fact that they’re the ones bearing the burden of being away.

can I protest our new office location, my boss’s badly-behaved dog comes to work every day, and more

Ask a Manager

I work for a small nonprofit of about 30 people, and I am junior staff. This new location would add close to 30 minutes on top of my 60-minute commute (via public transport) and would cost me close to 20% more. I’m already struggling to pay for the commute on my current salary, and don’t anticipate a raise for another six months or so. This is the kind of thing a good employer would want to be aware of, especially one with a small staff.

employee’s boyfriend keeps making her late for work, seriously ill employee who’s making mistakes, and more

Ask a Manager

Employee’s boyfriend keeps making her late for work. I manage an employee, who does good work. This is fine in principle as our company has no policy on dating coworkers and they work in different departments. Over the past two months or so, my employee has been late for work nearly every day, by up to 20 minutes. We work in a department where certain tasks have to be completed by certain times, so it’s important employees are on time.

should I hang my degree in my office, employee invited a toxic guest to our holiday party, and more

Ask a Manager

I’m also about to finish a Master’s degree program I’ve worked very hard for over the past two years, while working a full-time career job. It took a lot of time and energy and I’m very happy with my accomplishment, and my new employer expressed in the interview that they were impressed with my academic pursuits. But you can always display it at home! I suspect these emails are from Doug or Doug’s friends lashing out at us. It’s five answers to five questions.

boss asked me to be “brutally honest,” manager ignores my emails, and more

Ask a Manager

This assistant is a difficult person to work for, and is quite a micromanager. This created unclear instructions, resulting in me having to redo my work sometimes up to 10 times to suit her particular taste. She is well aware of the assistant’s management style, as several people in the organization refuse to work with her. I work for a small, family-owned business. Do not spend 30 hours preparing work as part of a try-out unless you’re paid for it.

There's no magic pill for being lost. | Penelope Trunk's Brazen.

Penelope Trunk

But my roommate was from Kellogg, a top-ten business school. She was going to be great at work. Probably because I used that trick earlier, when I came home from work and slept for a couple of hours before I took my son to cello. I lay in bed between my sons who realize something is wrong because ever since the farmer came into our lives, I’ve guarded my bed from them relentlessly, but tonight I let them in. Did you take that from the book fair?” “Yes.
