Hello, I have a question that needs your inputs how to handle. I am working with a post-MBA Associate on a project and this person seems to do extra work beyond what the team is asking the rest of us to do. I think during our conversations with the leadership, there were a couple of points that were brought up by the MD but that was not a concrete directive that we need to do because if it is, I would know about it from the chain email since I am staffed to the project.

I’m applying for a role at my client. They opened a manager level position but I’m looking for a senior manager level exit. At what point in the interview process should I ask if they’re open to bringing me on as a senior manager? Early on, or if I already have an offer?

I have joined Nagarro almost a year now as a senior architect. However, I see lot of issues here. The company is great so far as employee friendliness is concerned. It may be rated as the top most company in that regard and that is why attrition is well within control. However, there are issues:
1. Project Allocation - allocated to projects without fitment with the role or skills. No internal job portal
2. Lots of seniors in bench for long time
3. No way to give company feedback

Over the last 2 weeks I had final rounds of interviews with 4 companies... although the application process started at different times, the final rounds of interviews fell in this 2 week period. Funny how things get aligned sometimes. Either ways, just heard from 1 of them, and they really like my profile but will go with another internal candidate. So, 1 down... 3 to go... so anxious right now... I can see that I am going to be anxious the entire weekend!!!

Grey NY. Good? Bad?
Feeling lost and looking for career advice. After several years in consulting, I lost interest in it seeing that the only way upward is to start selling work. I hate sales (and finance, so no PE/banks for me). Where can I exit that pays well, has a solid upward ($$$) potential without having to deal with sales? Google and Facebook are where my coworkers are leaving to coast. I don’t want to coast, I want to make money.
I’m a woman with short hair.. the delta gate agent called me sir and I said “actually it’s ma’am” and smiled at him, and he rudely said “it’s not my fault I couldn’t tell.” I’m shook at how rude he was.. now I’m wondering if I look too manly. I was wearing eye makeup too. What would you do in this situation?
