What do you guys put down for expected salary when it asks on the job application? Any worries that it might affect you getting an interview? Has it ever been used against anyone? Thanks!
Hi Fishes, I have received an offer of 28 LPA for Lead I - Software Developer position at UST Global. I would be joining Bangalore location. I am Appian Developer with 6 years of experience. Since I did not get to interact with any UST employees (other than HR) during the interview process, could anyone tell me more about the company and its culture? PS: Would like to connect with Appian professionals working there, if possible.

Anyone ever lost a client unexpectedly? One of our client managers was unexpectedly killed yesterday afternoon in an accident. She was an incredible person and has two young children. I’m in shock and heartbroken. I cried when I got the news last night (the CTO sent an announcement with pictures). How did you handle the grief at work? Did your company do anything to honor them?
Read that Deloitte was standing up the NYC unemployment call center. I’m getting staffed to a call center that is just getting stood up, too.

Also, what are some of the good things that y’all have seen come out of such a project so far?

Would you rather stay in a niche that you’ve been doing well in, but you happen to find not too interesting, or try new areas and risk not doing as well?

I know the UK pays less but I am seeing differences of $80-100k for Advisory M at one of the Big 4. Why in the world are salaries so low? And don’t say healthcare. My healthcare is like $140/month for a PPO w low deductible. Plus taxes are less here. Makes the thought of a potential move over there hard :/

So the general consensus is if you’re asked to do 8+ hours of work on a file, have it reflected on your schedule... I have a bunch of clean up for my last file because of review notes left on my last day/client gave more support on last day. But I’m already fully booked on another file all of next week - what should I do?
How are internal roles treated at Bain? Also, any ideas for compensation? Role is building out analytics platform. I am interested in the work but I’ve barely started out of undergrad. However i would jump for better comp 🤷♀️

Have a feeling I’m pregnant with second and am actually too scared to find out. My first just turned one and we are finally JUST starting to hit a groove (but he still doesn’t sleep through the night). Also, we JUST moved states. Ah, just so scared tbh even though we were trying for a second. Has anyone else felt this? What is the real experience of becoming a second time mom? Two under two?
Anyone struggled with this? I’m 30; I like the idea of having kids but also was never my “dream”. I get along with my friends’ kids ok, though I’d 100% hire a lot of help(love my career and would like to retain some freedom—the idea of not going to be able to go away for a weekend w my girlfriends/my husband with no kids troubles me).My husband LOVES kids, he takes charge of nearly all of the house chores, so I’d have support. People say don’t do it unless 100% sure;I feel I’ll never get there?
I work with several people with kids and I have noticed quite often that they completely disregard any issues of people with no kids and try to one up work life imbalance conversations with stories of them being parents. It must be hard being a parent but I don’t think people at work should be treated differently or given any additional consideration just because they have a kid. You already get parental leave so If I’m expected to work 12hr I ask the same to be expected from my peers with kids.
Anyone here ever worked with a vocal coach? I need recommendations for a lesson or two before auditioning for a pseudo professional chorus group...
