It's been 2 months I have joined a new company. Here i'm unable to perform well all the time I feel insecure. As the technology is new to me and Due to more work pressure and strict project timeline i feel low and nervous all the time. i feel I'm dumb not able to solve simple problem. Also not getting the proper support from lead/manager, any task assigned to me, i had to do my own. Even if you ask for any help from any team members you need to ask lead before that. Pls advice me wht to do now.

I’m a consultant in IAM, but frankly IAM has been really not interesting. Almost like IT Auditing but with some more technicality. Not for me long term. What does one do at this stage? Try to switch to another team in Cyber? Soon to be promoted to a senior, so contemplating my choices. I’d really like something more hands on and less identity focused (selling products and implementing them). Currently in Big4.

Got a BS in Advertising in 2018 and have good knowledge of Adobe (photoshop, indesign, illustrator). Agency experience for 6 months doing PR, 1 year at marketing agency (google ads, SEO, analytics) and haven’t been able to work for a year due to visa processing so I’ve been doing freelance work: websites, social media… I believe I want to do strategy at an agency but also like consulting firms. I know my experience is a bit over the place so if anyone has any advice on what’d be a good fit!
I’ve been doing M&A for about 7 months now and still feel anxious and stressed basically every day. When (if ever), did you all get more comfortable doing this? I’m hoping it gets easier...
I’ve just went through a very tough interview process at a top BB - the hiring MD wants to call me tomorrow. Is this a good sign?
Additionally, I’m also recruiting for a top PE shop. If given the chance, I’d perhaps take the PE offer, but am afraid that if I receive an offer from the BB, it may expire before I finish the process at the PE shop.
How should I respond to a (hopeful) offer given by the BB tomorrow?
Any advice would be much appreciated.

English is my first language, and Japanese my second. I lived in Tokyo and worked in an office where I had to have working proficiency in a business setting. I struggled for a while both with accent and articulation, it just took a lot of time mimicking my colleagues’ pronunciation and borrowing their expressions. But eventually I could get along just fine. I still struggled from time to time to express an English phrase in Japanese... it comes with being a non-native speaker. How long have you been speaking English and working in an English-speaking setting? Don’t get discouraged
Americans tend to speak more slowly than other cultures, so your accent may not be as much of an issue as accent plus how quickly or slowly you speak. In comparison, most Americans don’t speak more than one language, so that’s great that you’re fluent in (at least) two. And believe me, there are a lot of American accents out there that the speakers are asked to repeat themselves.
Agree with GS 1 - usually the diversity you bring to a team is net-positive, but it's important that others on the team can at least decipher what you're saying
I don't care. Guy sitting next to me has a pretty strong Indian accent and he's one of my best friends on the team.
Uhhh, I don't think anything. It does become an issue if I can't communicate with the person, however. Where is the break down?
Maybe it’s not your accent and more so the way you’re communicating? Some cultures express things more directly while others are more round about.
I’ve been speaking English for about 12 years. Came to US during high school. I compare myself to other members on my team and everyone expresses themselves so fluently, and I feel like I’m the weakest one.
That’s totally normal, don’t get down on yourself. Mimicry was how I learned Japanese, if you like the way someone expressed something, wrote it down and commit it to memory. I learned a lot of phrases and idioms that helped me expand my capabilities
