Have you ever accepted a role that was not your first choice, and then after a month into the role, the one you really wanted opens up and they ask if your still interested? Did you stay or jump ship?

Thoughts on exiting D tech consulting at 1 YoE for a data role at a startup with a 30% base pay bump? Felt very pigeonholed with ERP’s at D, and want to eventually jump to product/maybe data science

Personally think the dow jones will go down to 22,000 as the US is not prepared at all for the coronavirus. It will try to go up a bit and then it will crash again

I have a feeling my time is coming to an end. What’s the most strategic path to a partner withdrawing? Quitting on my terms once I’ve secured another partner role or waiting to get let go?

Just wasted 20 minutes trying to figure out how to update my job title on LinkedIn as a promotion instead of a new position. It still sent notification to my network as a new position instead of a promotion. How’s your evening going? 🙃

How late do you guys stay in the office? I like to take a mental break, workout and then hop back on later. Do you feel guilty leaving the client early if there are no meetings/fire alarms?

Dad sent me a copy of his 1980 employee manual from Arthur Anderson. It has references to the client's switchboard, expensing telegraph costs and an example of a handwritten timesheet. Epic.

I am starting a new role with a new company and will have 6 direct reports. Although I have managed teams before in a consulting project setting, this will be the first time in industry. Any recommendations on how to sharpen my management skills (books, blogs, etc). Particularly looking at how to delegate effectively and practical examples on how to run day to day.

6 weeks until the baby comes. I’m not on a project so I have the gift of time. Moms, what are things I should prepare now? Labor playlist, feeding app trackers, washing new clothes.....

Hey guys, I am a self taught programmer and I love it. I do not know the competitive programming concepts and tricks which you find at alert code etc. I’m right now leading a dev team with one of FAANG as clients, where I also code daily. I am guessing that the TPM role is most suited to my profile. I have 2 quest - 1) How do I up my “manager” game and 2) Is TPM the correct role if I want to stay technical and not lose that touch. Thanks!

Work from home has caused me to develop some bad habits. I start drinking at noon a lot of the time and finish a fifth of scotch by the time I go to bed.
