For an existing client, I negotiated a project fee rather than going W2, half up front, half upon completion, on a 30-day bid. At both milestones, the client repeatedly kicked-back my invoices for additional details to be added and re-reviewed, and essentially got away with turning what should have been a NET 7 payment plan into something closer to NET 45. They also had me work through the scheduled 2-week downtime between phases and are now waffling at paying any overages or overtime. FML.
I'm working on a support project and want to move out of it. So, can one become a self taught data engineer/analyst? If yes, please guide or else suggest some good institute that teaches and provides placement assistance.
Thanks in advance.

What are some interesting, non-traditional (i.e. not “VP/Director of fill in the blank department” at industry “XYZ” firm) exits you’ve heard of? For example, someone I worked with left to join the analytics department of a major pro sports team. Others have left to start a small business or work on a passion project that wasn’t necessarily in the same line of work as their consulting career.

I recently completed my technical interview with epam anywhere and I got selected in that. Now HR told me that I have one more project interview round which is also technical. In my epam profile it's showing that it's an offer interview. My HR told for functional testing it's a project interview instead of offer interview. I really confused about this and why should I take another Technical round even after clearing 1.5 hrs technical round. Can anyone share details of it?

You need to give things like this to us in advance to digest it before we meet to go through it.
5 min later-
We need to meet face to face every time you are presenting something for the first time.
Client: “We need someone to sit on-site one day a week at our office in New Jersey”
Team: shows up on designated day, no clients to be found
Client: “we aren’t on site today”
I had a client force us to write a TV script and work Harrison Ford into it somehow, just so she could meet him. It was a Pharma spot and we already had a successful campaign.
Countless rounds of revisions on the sizzle reel from hell, and every time, the client would ask us to ”fix the volume of the music, it’s still too loud.”
There was no V/O. Only audio was the music track. It’s really hard to say “maybe you could turn down the volume on your laptop” without coming across as condescending.
Client to film director (in front of actor) “Can’t we just put him in Spanx? He’s looking a bit too chubby on screen.”
Client complains I’m not responsive enough on email (I respond within 10 mins every time) so I start replying even faster. Client says there is too much back-and-forth and I need to cut down on emails
“I’d like to drive awareness through demand” 🤯
Client: I want to make a 30s TV ad. I want reach.
Agency: For the same budget, we could do this newsworthy activation that will get you lots of PR, film it, and put it as a 30s TV ad.
"More aspirational but less white...” 🤦🏽♂️
Have we discussed Verizon yet? 😂
Client forced us to launch this god awful campaign that is as “We are hip! YOLO!” as possible. Our audience hates it and I am low key enjoying every “wtf is this?!” comment that gets posted right now.
Any client who thinks they’re your only client.
Just me or has "breakthrough" replaced the word "disruptive"? Seeing clients use it everywhere.
No one beats McDonald’s! ABSOLUTELY NO ONE! They’re like the old frat boys that show up to the party and think they still got it but they are really the creepy uncles.
Imagine getting everything late from client and creative team and hoping everything would be okay mid-flight. I sense a digital-based nuclear bomb is on the way mid-flight.
