Almost No utilization this year. Was on maternity Loa for 5 months. On bench doing some trailheads. Want to get into a project. Looking for sfdc dev/admin roles. Getting really worried to be fired.

What is the financial implication of charging unplanned (i.e. half a day here or there) PTO on a fixed bid contract? Does anyone win in this situation? Client still pays for deliverable, consultant loses PTO, project saves a bit?

Felt guilty / sneakily happy that my flight wasn't until 10am this morning. Now it is delayed until 1045...this is going to get hard to explain when I arrive at client site

I heard that they are laying off every employee the day before their 401k plans vest for the calendar year. Pay cuts expected for those that are spared the layoff

My RL didn’t have a formal mid year pre CRT review with me. He just pinged me and said: I’ll represent you. Utilization = 75% and average snapshots. Am I at risk?

I’m a first year - partner gave shitty instructions (objectively) to a time-sensitive drafting project. They’ve been on vacation. I’ve been drowning lately, so I wake up super early to finish the draft and send it in around noon. Partner wanted it by 3 pm today, but doesn’t look at it until 5:30. Realizes I didn’t do what he wanted - which he never told me - and wants a redraft in an hour. How’s your Friday going?

Anyone been in a situation where you know you’re getting laid off and you resign first? Is there any chance the firm does not accept your resignation and decides to lay you off instead? I’m debating how late to push my resignation to maximize my income, but don’t want to be laid off first bc the company that hired me could see that in my background check. Any and all advice/former experiences welcome.

Hi! Question on hiring, After a day of interview with hiring manager, which apparently went well got reply back on Thank you note as well. But just saw the job post status as ‘promoted’ on LinkedIn for the same position I interviewed for, is it a bad sign? Or am I just over thinking? :(
