Unfortunately it sounds like you're surrounded by the wrong people. Your leadership should be encouraging you to speak more, ask questions, and try to get a better understanding of what we do or offer a different viewpoint on it. If you're being ignored or dismissed, I recommend looking for a different team environment. My opinion is that a good idea can come from anyone and everyone deserves to be heard.

That’s so real. It’s my first job, I learned a lot under pressure because we had a small team, and I grew a lot. But it’s hard to tell what’s “normal” within a culture and what’s dismissive because of that

To anyone going through this: Don't let it discourage you. Let it motivate you to find a team that will respect and appreciate you.

Most people on my team are fine. There’s one petty SVP on my team who holds back people she thinks are smarter than her. It definitely feels shitty but I’m mostly able to work around her.

Maybe, OP. But either way the SVP still gets in the way of certain opportunities. Trying to cut my losses on this account, and hoping it sorts itself out

Absolutely, yes.

Being confident and competent in your responsibilities will earn you respect, unless you are surrounded by toxic people...and that should be avoided like the plague. Life is too short.

Just started recently and have a question. How do you cope with competitive/more cutthroat colleagues? I find myself to be a pretty laid back, collaborative, but intelligent guy but these people definitely bring a different more competitive and “tryhard” mindset. Makes me feel like I’m going to fall behind. Any advice?

Just got let go and my manager said part of it was because I was looking for other jobs. I didn't look for other jobs at work, so I'm not sure how they could have known that unless a coworker snitched on me. Is it worth it to try and find out who or should I just leave it? Can't deny that I'm seriously pissed off about it.

Mid level atty in a fast moving case. Earlier this year jrs brought on the team to help lessen work flow. Both partner and I delegate certain tasks, esp when we’re super busy. Junior goofed regarding deadlines (which I had to ask for twice); now partner is stressed, tho we should be able to lock in an extension. Jr took ownership of the slip up. I owned that I should have checked his work, but I feel that I hurt my rep. w partner. What to do? Lay low? Not a fan of throwing ppl under bus.

Do you think it is time to find another job when your PIC is a micro manager, never trained you when you got hired, expects you to know things no one ever told you about in the first place, texts and calls you in the morning with questions you don’t have an answer to (I work evening shift so I’m mostly sleep when he reaches out), assumes the worst about everything, plots against you anyway, lies all the time, they don’t even do their job, they leave their trash behind etc. gives me anxiety.

There is a ethical issue with the Nagarro interview process. Why don't Nagarro make the job interviews aligned to the same level of client interviews. Client interviews in Nagarro is tougher than job interviews. This way Nagarro is increasing the bench strength but then putting extra pressure on the candidates in to find a project. Keep the same standard of the interview for both job and client. This way both will be in a good state of mind.
