On a meet and greet zoom with a potential client today. Junior employee and company senior partner. Junior asks if we can supply him with an animator by Friday. I respond politely that we’re not talent management, it would cost him more than hiring directly, and it would shrink our freelance pool for our other project clients. The senior partner sees the sense in this a mile off. Now the question: did the senior partner include the junior in order to get him to ask these sorts of questions?

Anyone in tech - how do you handle junior Dev dudes who are simultaneously green, and too arrogant to admit they don't know what they're doing / won't admit a woman might know more than them. Had a Dev on my team drop the ball significantly on a client deliverable, but keeps insisting he understands and wastes hours trying to figure out stuff on his own bc he refuses to allow me to explain it to him. If I had the time, I'd just take over and do it myself at this point, but I don't.
Everyone at my client site is sick 😷
Have any of you witnessed a situation where a project teammate was underperforming or the client didnt want them on board anymore, which led to them getting rolled off, but then the teammate tried to accuse you or leadership of racism or gender discrimination as to why they were rolled off?

When I was in industry, I started presenting to SVPs as an intern. Now my manager says I’m too junior to present to an SM on the client team (I’m a level 10). This is a little upsetting
Anyone here also get really anxious before the start of a project? How do you deal? Thoughts of not making the client/manager happy fill my mind.
In the final round of interview with a San Fran startup that’s about to go IPO... but I know I’d be also giving up lots of the structures & project flexibility & diversity offered here at big 4. What rationale would you use to make a decision?

What are some common pitfalls of adopting non-enterprise software? (Beyond standard security/scalability/reliability/etc.) Client seems intent on going for a solution that may backfire in the long run and cannot seem to get the message across.
A lead on my team mentioned she is pregnant and she hasn’t made the news public and just informing me as a friend. we go live in summer, she won’t be due until fall but I feel project might need back up given the crazy hours in go live, should I inform SM or PPMD in confidence and look for an additional member? How do I go about this? Don’t want to betray her trust and at the same time do not want to risk project. Anyone been on this boat before?
I’ve been struggling with the future of my career lately. I’ve been a business analyst in fed software dev projects for 5 years now. The natural progression would be to become a PM in a similar project. I’ve fortunately been given many opportunities to try out some “lead” roles at my current firm. I’ve tried it...and I just don’t like it. Doesn’t fit my personality or give me any satisfaction. I like working more on the “ground” and learning from developers. But I know I could be making cont.

I received what appears to be a random email from an executive recruiter at a firm in NY. She has a client but can not disclose who it is at this time ( ie. Non disclosure agreement ). I sent my resume thinking not much of it. I just received an email saying that my “resume did not parse correctly into the Candidate Management System. In order to move forward, I need your ATS compatible resume ASAP. “ Why does this feel fishy to me? Can someone provide any additional insight

I recently got married and started talking to my sister in law more often. She addresses me as “Bro” EVERY SINGLE TIME. She knows I identify as female. I absolutely hate because it’s a sign of deeply ingrained patriarchy and I also find it disrespectful. I never address anyone as bro, dude, man etc because I honestly find it very disrespectful. I would rather be addressed by my name. How can I handle this situation? We are still forming a reltnship & don’t want to hurt that process. I’m Indian.

When you are switching firms, what do you care about? What kind of questions do you have? Do you ask about where the company is going and what strategies they are taking? How do you ask about culture? Do you ask about happy hours or team composition? What matters to you other than compensation and WLB? I’m trying to be a more curious person, and not just focused on the money
