I am a Project manager for a cloud computing firm in India. I want to settle in Canada. What are my options? I would apply for the PR this year, but how do I find a job in Canada? Or should I try an internal transfer, would it be easier?
I’m new to the world of billable hours. I like to keep organized, so I do spend a small bit of time making/updating case lists and contact sheets to make sure I have record of last contact with client/OC, where I am in suit, relevant deadlines, etc. Do you bill for this kind of work?
I Want to maintain engagement and morale on a long project and staring an MS Teams Channel to post recognition and engagement events with staff. Stumped on what to call it… any suggestions? So far “Good news and more” is all I got. TIA
Are there any firms out there that actually let you take all your PTO? I hate that we have to make up our PTO to meet utilization targets. Been on a capped 40-hour project for the last two years and it’s had a terrible effect on my utilization. Plus, any firms that don’t require more working for free (like all of our BS firm contributions here at D)?

Hi Guys, I joined USI on 10th. Do I need to contact my deployment specialist or Should I wait cause no project had been assigned to me yet. Is this common? Please suggest & Thanks..!!
OC, you need to chill. There are literally no deadlines in this case right now. Our CMC isn’t until October because the court is so overwhelmed. Your (bogus) “creative” claims aren’t time-sensitive. My client is still trying to recover from the massive hit it took during COVID. And I’m already billing 250+ hour months on other matters because, again, COVID disruptions. Your desire to get docs faster is the LEAST of my priorities, especially when we already gave you a shit ton of data and docs.

Suffering from crippling work related anxiety lately. Have always found this job stressful at times but with wfh the anxiety is constant and paralyzing and unbearable. I have regular panic attacks, question everything I do, feel like I’m never doing a good enough job and am really down on myself. Part of this I’m sure is that I live by myself and am alone with my thoughts all day, part is that I’m new to the manager role. Any coping strategies??

United Platinum here - got an offer to pay ~$6k for upgrade to 1K. Thoughts on if it’s worth it? Already belong to Club (United Infinite) and have CLEAR credit through Amex Platinum. Still have 40 plus points from hitting Platinum last year. Unlikely to travel for business until late 2Q at earliest but have 2-3 transcontinental flights planned for summer and 1 transatlantic for fall. Maybe another 1-2 shorter trips this year as well. I imagine I’d use my extra plus points on all these.
