Hey fishes, I have joined Cognizant as a business analyst in July 2021. I got allocated to a project, but my billing hasn't been started. I fill training and non-billable in timesheet and has never been exposed to the client yet, but I work with some seniors and assist them. Learning is stagnated, and I feel that how is it possible that a guy from 6 months is allocated to a project but neither getting work nor billable? Is it normal in Cognizant? Please help me to understand.

What are the consequences of asking to be rolled off a project? I am so sick of the BS on this project.
I have to head into some client sessions but will be back around 11:30CT to answer some more for a half hour. I’m mainly answering them in the order the questions came in, so if it takes me a while to reply that’s why. In the meantime Louie my Siberian cat will be holding down the fort!
As someone with ADHD, the impulsive side of me speaks up in meetings without fully processing the information. Then when corrected, I beat myself up for the rest of the day. What has ended up happening over time is that I have started to come off as an introvert (because of the fear of being wrong) and also with low confidence. This is not a good trait in client facing roles where we are constantly making recommendations and clients look up to us. Anyone else deal with this?

I received an offer from a 40+ attorney firm on Friday. Mostly partners, only 4 assocs. It came directly from the mp on video call. There appear to be no HR Person. MP seems like a cool guy. Really liked the 5-6 partners I met. Seem really nicer but most were newer only like 1-2 years at the time and lower level who mostly help out on other partners’ matters. I was visibly excited about offer. Just learned that it’s actually quite a toxic workplace. How/What do I now say when I reject offer?

My spouse has made it clear to me that they no longer support me working in biglaw and want me to find a job with more reasonable hours. They were supportive early in my career and when we had one child, but our second was born a couple of years ago and all the additional work they put in at home, the lack of family time and lack of couples time is becoming a big strain on our marriage. We are in a high cost of living city so will have to undergo a major lifestyle change if we forego my biglaw..
Anyone else feel that living in such a big, hectic city is just as stressful as work? The traffic, the people, the noise, the smell, the rudeness, coupled with working long hours. It's too much.
