You’re PM should be letting you know. Every contract is different. If you don’t know, ask you’re project lead

No worries. It depends on the guidance your agency released for example VA will continue business as usual come tomorrow. I’m sure you’ll hear from your client soon enough. Go enjoy the day!

Your account team will let you know. Not that many accounts are actually impacted

I’m expected to bill this week because my contract is not paid thru appropriations process. But as everyone has said each contract is different...

I have two contract offers: One is about Data Management/Quality project for 6 months, the pay is 5000£ per month, the other is product data scientist for an early stage startup based in San Francisco for 4 months, the pay is a lot lot less (less than 1000£ per month). Tbh, I am not a big fan of data management, and I totally see myself doing product analytics which is becoming a hot skill in DS field. Is it stupid to turn down the first offer and accept the second one? I would love some advice

I felt I was designated as the scape goat. Continued.

My coach is great, but her advice was basically, “D is full of assholes 🤷🏻‍♀️, get used to it.” Is it too soon to leave? Especially pregnant? What to tell recruiters?

Hi everyone. I interviewed for a sales role at Amazon. I was told the role was an L6 and I can stay based in Chicago. Well, the recruiter emailed me today saying the hiring team felt I was better suited for an L5 role (estimated total comp is $140K-$150K) and I would have to move to Seattle. They'll send me an offer if that works. Any advice or opinions on how to negotiate? For context, I gave a desired salary range of $280K-$310K since this was an L6 role, and my current TC at P&G is $200K.
