Docker for Desktop is not free anymore. Thoughts? Will your project / firm replace it? And if you replace it, what are your plans?
Hi Everyone! It’s almost the end of the year and I decided that it’s time for a change in my career. I have been working as a business analyst at JNJ, with about 4 years of experience and halfway done with my MBA. I would like to move into a project management role (I have worked on my scrum master certification). I make about 68k a year and I feel like I’m due for a huge pay raise. I have been asking 105k-120k which companies have been open to. Am I asking for the appropriate amount?
What’s everyone’s experience with traveling these days - how often and for what reasons? And where do you anticipate it going? I’ve left consulting but considering coming back, under the assumption that the regular 4 day travel week is basically not coming back (tho obv client / project specific and certainly will make sense sometimes). Am I nuts?
I have 3yoe in Wipro. I was deployed in support kind of project when I wanted to join development project. I tried to get out of it but they told I fan change after 18 months. From 18 months to now 3 years in Wipro. I am unable to change my domain. I want to work in development project and have skills in java, spring, hibernate. Some suggested that I should switch in other company as a developer but I am not enough confident to give interview as they ask previous project.Any suggestions or help?
My Director is just joining the project a month after it’s started, the previous D has to roll off due to a conflict. What can I do to support this transition? Me and my manager have already walked through where files are & decks we’ve presented, and the weekly cadence of meetings. Wondering if there’s anything else I can do to be helpful in this situation for my new D.
How do you deal with openly hostile/aggressive clients? We’re under-resourced and staffing up at the moment so if I was the client I’d be annoyed too, but the current level of hostility is not (con't)
First time working under a micromanager and it is absolutely killing my morale as a new hire. Cannot believe we are sending emails back and forth this past hour on updating a draft email to send to a client they will take 5 seconds to skim through. I need a drink. 🥃
With inflation coming in, anyone asking clients to raise rates. With the margin pressures internally, client cost pressure and rise in prices it’s getting frustrating.
I could really use insight. I’m a Rockstar in my dept/team. Ask me to take on a new project and I can get it done. I delegate tasks and partner with other lines of business. I am knowledgeable, punctual, communicative and competent. I can learn new skills/programs easily (SQL, Verint Speech Analytics, pivot tables in Excel.) My pain point is summed up: “Overlooked.” I am not a member of mgmt but want to pursue opportunities. How’ve you asked for mentorship? Tips on standing out in WFH setting?
at freelancers - have you ever not gotten paid for hours works and invoiced? Example - you bill hourly, estimate 100 hours for the project, told them ahead of time that you are going over and bill for 105 hours, but they only pay for the 100. What can you do?

Attention legal recruiters (agency or in-house). I am a top performing NYC based legal recruiter focusing on placing associates and partners with AmLaw 25 firms.

Anyone else look for small excuses to cancel dates? I’ve noticed I get so excited to hang out with a guy for the first time but once the day comes around I get nervous and try to find ways to back out. Like now, I have the tiniest pimple on my face that I’m sure wouldn’t be noticeable with makeup, but I want to use it as an excuse to cancel on this guy that seems really excited to go out with me. How do I get over this? I really like him but my brain is telling me to self sabotage (per usual)
I'm in my 30s and have spent 10+ years in the industry on production/account related fields. I have a good job that pays ok, but I'm struggling to find the drive I once had. I feel like I have zero love left for advertising and if I have to deal with one more of client's completely unrealistic asks I'll snap. Anyone out there have any recommendations on how to handle burnout if you are someone who's life has always been very career driven?

Okay I feel like I’ve been talking about therapy way too much on this thread. So I just started therapy for the first time. I’m 30 years old and this year I had a really strong urge to finally look for a therapist. But has a therapist ever made you feel triggered? The last couple weeks I’ve been really diving deep and realizing things about myself on a deeper level. And I feel so triggered by it. I know that this is a good thing but damn.
