I had a client in Jax for 8 months and really liked the location, especially in the winter. The airport / rental car situation is pretty low stress. Surprisingly good restaurant options and hotels. It’s nice to be by the beach when you can

smart

I live in Jax. It’s changed a lot in the last few years and there are a lot of good restaurants/ bars. I came from DC and it’s obviously not on the same level as DC, but I was impressed. The beach is nice but I recommend going north to Atlantic and not by the Jax beach pier. Unless you’re a surfer - then the pier is where you want to be.

JAX is growing rapidly; tons of logistics, fintech, financial services and insurance. Decent health / life sciences industry too. A number of large orgs have their back offices HQ here.

That being said, it's not the most progressive city and a lot of long term locals lament the changes that bigger business brings.

Labor market is very, very tight so it's a great place to live as an employee.

COL is relatively low for a city of this size. DM if you want more insight into any of the above.

I found it pretty boring but that was a few years ago... maybe bars close after 10 these days

boring. terrible city, no real life. easy airport though....

Ideally, I'd like to move directly into a PM role in the software space, but I'm not getting much traction. Does anyone have any experience in starting in a more "junior PM" role and working their way up?

I work for a nonprofit organization, and we are short staffed. My primary role is being the IT Support Analyst but I do help the database manager with tasks and projects. We’re currently working with PowerBI and because she’s late with HER project deadline, she’s rushing me to finish tasks that she gives me even though we’re both learning at the same time. My problem is that she keeps asking for updates everyday even though the task JUST STARTED. How do I professionally tell her to back off?

I like the challenging work, but I would have a full team working with the federal group. Thoughts?

I got an offer from TCS with 50% on my fixed and also an assurance of being deployed to an implentation project.
