Curious to hear. I feel like this is one of those things (like fiver), where people are looking for offshore prices, curious if anyone’s seen success charging real fees (ie greater than $100)

After all the fees etc feel like it’s not worth doing. I’d rather go walk someone’s dog than do my day job for less than my hourly rate.

I regularly hire through Upwork. For the stuff I need done, it's a balance between quality and cost. If you're not getting callbacks then your fee is probably too high for your area of work.

Hello Fishes,
I am much stressed.. it’s only been 5 months to join Capgemini. I joined in as cyber security consultant with good package.
However, the work I do the tricks, logics and solutions I share with team to apply in the project… all are of no use when discussed with the architect guy. The whole team rely upon the wordings/solutions suggested by him only. It feels like my skill/knowledge and experience is of no use.
I feel like what am I doing here….? Any suggestions please.

Anyone else required to put together completely unrealistic timelines?

Upper management's direction is to put together the most aggressive deadlines we can. If we think a project will take 16 months, make the plan for 10 months then there's a chance we may launch in 13 months.

I understand that time to market is important in consumer product goods, but being constantly behind schedule and rushing everything is terrible for the team's morale.
