Male client is pursuing me to take a job at the co. Treated me to $400 dinner. Told me he loves me (then said he meant it "figuratively"). And presented the offer by saying "I want you..." Red flags?

Thoughts on double brewed blazers/suits? Federal client, though not one of the dressier ones like State or DoD. Not necessarily out of character for me to dress up slightly boldly.

One of my BA claims to have great Salesforce experience with configuration, implementation, and intermediate admin skills. I asked him to create a formula field today to conditionally display “Level 1”, “Level 2” or “Level 3” based on very simple criteria on two inputs: client type and service type and he says he needs a day to figure it out. WTF dude this is a simple logic statement setup that takes at most a couple minutes. If you can’t do this shit get back on the bench.

Took an industry job to get my part time MS degree and a raise. However new Corp is worse than any client I’ve had, no organization, and I have less than 10hrs a week of work. Someone tell me it’s okay to just sit and take the money, I’m going insane and worried someone will find out my entire org could probably go with no real impact to the bottom line
