I work for Small Company A. I want to work for Small Company B.

How do I manage my boss's expectations?

InOverMyHeadFilter: I'm in a job where I have unrealistic performance goals that I didn't get to see until after I had been working for a week or so. I don't think they're obtainable and my job/bonus (hah, bonus, funny) depends on it. The kicker is that I actually like the job more or less (not a dream job though) and I'm moving at the end of the week so I can't really quit...How can I manage the expectations of my boss and management without looking like I can't do my job?

How to respond to an email from your boss asking you to back off a bit?

I've been working six months now at a small ad agency in a medium sized city (70,000). I come from big agency experience. I'm an art director. We have 8 people total, all great people to work with. I like the change from big city to smaller city. There are a lot of plus-es to it. Just recently, we landed a big account. They're looking for a redesign of their brand and ad campaign with internet, non-traditional, advanced website... the works. Whereas most of our job lists for clients number in the few, this one starts with well more than a dozen with several of them as very big projects and with very tight deadlines (in the next six weeks). Skipping to the question, I've been asked by the creative director to step back and stop treading on toes via email. More inside... [more inside]

Is there a way for my boss to screw me out of my $$

I work for a magazine publishing company, and I think I am making a lateral move to another company which offers more upside potential in the future. I get a base salary, but most of my income comes from commission. The company I work for is relatively small, a LLC, and I dont think there are any $$ problems. My boss however is somewhat of a tyrant. My concern in leaving is that he will try and find a way to stiff me out of any remaining due commission to me. It is currently and ranges around 20k, in which he owes me, and pays me off in increments per paycheck. When I started here, we had put the agreement down on paper...(more) [more inside]
