Just got if a client call where the lead client a 65 year old white male called the shots, a white 45 year old ecd presented the work, a 45 year old male white acct person did the selling. The young creative team with one aa woman and a going white female presented their work. I (39 female) and the secondary client (female) stayed silent all if the call cause there were already enough people talking and the lead client only wanted to hear from the other male co workers. What made me sad...
I don't understand why people in TCS are so scared of their managers. Just for sake of ratings and pay band people have made this organisation morally corrupt. I have been working since 2 years in TCS took transfer within 1 month of joining. Switched 3 project in 2 years worked on my conditions 9 hours means 9 hours don't give a damn whether people will like it or not. And I can proudly say that because of this reason I got targetted many times but my Personal & Professional Life is balanced.
I have been in a career where I have to communicate to both external and internal stakeholders, especially for the past 6.5 years. This is mostly in person, I’m a trainer by professional and if I have to be honest I hate talking to groups of people or to someone new I haven’t met before because I’m an introvert and I have been told I’m a great communicator, it’s my strength however I still struggle with confidence and get nervous before meeting a client. Anyone got suggestions I could use?
How do you all navigate an ECD and head of client service who want to skip the brief and land on an insight based on their own instincts and move right into the creative? I’m curious if any of you feel like you have to fight for Strategy’s purpose in the process a little more than usual these days?

I switched to EY GDS.So thought to come back with my experience.The process was absolutely hassle free. In 4-5 days after joining, I gave client interview.

Best top notch work.

Started a new contract as a contractor, my technical counterpart on the client side is lying about my contribution and bitching behind my back about my work ethic and abilities. What can I do ?

What are people’s thoughts on Gamestarter? Game coin is trading at $1 and the project will be launching two games (Dark Frontier and Pixel Pix) in Q4 with a dozen more NFT games coming in 2022. The trailer for DF looks great: https://youtu.be/mw2ZYsAioT8 and their community is growing by the day. Could this be the next Axie Infinity? After NFT profile pictures, the rumor is NFT gaming is where the trend is going next.

I’ve been leading a massive project by myself for the last year almost and my boss torpedoed my last round of meetings: “oh we don’t need to socialize this, I’ve been doing it, let’s just kick it off.” Okay. So turns out, no one fucking knew and now because we had one meeting instead of two, the people we met with aren’t even the ones doing the work, and they’re not telling the ones who are supposed to do the work about it. So I now need to go back and do more meetings.
I’m currently working at a law firm in San Diego specializing in coastal property rights as a litigation paralegal and legal assistant. We received a minute order from a preliminary injunction hearing. Our client was ordered to post an injunction bond of $2,500. First our client walked to the courthouse to try to pay the bond up front, but they would not accept his money. He tried to call several bond companies, but all said the amount was too small. So how do you post an injunction bond?
I will be asking for release from project (joined 4 months ago) due to timing + other issues. I will be on bench again so would there be any risk of termination? Please help. Nagarro
SAP project manager that has been contracting for the past 5 years as well as various times in my career.
Got a 6 month contract that I’m 3 months into. Pay is great, work environment sucks with micromanaging CEO of boutique outsourcing firm. Latest is killing me. Says that I can’t go over 40 hours a week, but I should only be charging hours I work - if I don’t work then I should charge less than 40.
How do you rebound from a big screw up? I am checking my work, and I brought it to relationship partner and clients’ attention, telling them to pause before they further act on my advice, but my advice is looking like I was very wrong. Bracing myself for reputation impact? Or are we allowed to be wrong and people roll with it?

McKinsey & Company Can someone recommend the top consulting firms to look at for HCLS opportunities? Preferably firms with a dedicated BU in HCLS focused on advising as well as project based work. I am currently in discussions with Huron. I have looked at Oliver Wyman (appears to be heavy on payor and Rev Cycle), Deloitte McKinsey & Company and Capgemini I’ve reached out to McKinsey but didn’t receive a reply. Any direction/advice and referrals would be greatly appreciated!

Thoughts on leaving a new job you’ve only been in for a few months? Started at a new firm in advisory and really don’t like it. Not what I thought it was going to be. I want to get out but how would that look to other employers? Most of the reason why I don’t like the new group is because of the people/team. I wish I could go back and look into another firm. I think I want to go industry now. Thoughts on leaving so soon?
Hi guys, is it really hard to get a foreign job? I have just started applying for some positions through linkedin jobs. Are there better ways than linkedin? Also my experience is relatively less. I have one year of experience but I'm confident in my skills. What do you suggest? Is it too early and am I lacking experience or do they hire people with less experience also?

Should we eat the rich?
I just realized that 9/10 billionaires went to an Ivy League university and came from households with income in the top 5-10%.
The middle class and poor never make it to the big boys club. The world is setup super asymmetrically to favour the elites and their progeny.
The only solution is to eat the rich and reset society and capitalism!

What does crc mean in advertising?
I’ve been a jr. in the industry for only a year. I’m at a large and reputable agency, but I feel as though I’m not getting the experience I need. Everyone is spread pretty thin with workloads, and I haven’t been able to receive the coaching I need to advance. Nor do I have anything book worthy. Now we are undergoing a restructuring which sounds like code for layoffs. So I’m worried that I’m already dead in the water before I can even start swimming in my career.

Many creative awards submissions and judging are happening right now, should it continue amid the current situation? Does carrying on with it with thoughts and prayers make us look good as an industry? If you’re one of the judges are you going to look the other way for the sake of bragging rights and “glory”?
