I am a field marketer. I travel and cover 12 states. HQ is across the US on the east coast. My manager put a surprise calendar invite twice now to go to home office without consulting dates to see if we were available. I stood up and asked to be included on available dates and said I will attend virtually but asking me to be away for 4 additional full days away from my family without asking me is not OK. I already travel a lot and this boundary is super important to me. Am I right or wrong?

Hi everyone my brother got into tcs 1.5month back & still not allocated to project they said he will be interviewed again for project selection. Please let me know if there will be an issue with that?

I’ve been leading a massive project by myself for the last year almost and my boss torpedoed my last round of meetings: “oh we don’t need to socialize this, I’ve been doing it, let’s just kick it off.” Okay. So turns out, no one fucking knew and now because we had one meeting instead of two, the people we met with aren’t even the ones doing the work, and they’re not telling the ones who are supposed to do the work about it. So I now need to go back and do more meetings.

This year’s ROMBA felt underwhelming. Partying was ok, per usual, but the conference itself felt blah. Panels were mediocre, corporate events were cheap-ish, there weren’t enough senior people. Even hooking up was just twinks on twinks on twinks mostly (not into them, so choices were very limited). Is it post-covid, corporate cost cuts or something else?

I’m starting grad school in the fall and want to take a 6ish week break of freedom using the PTO I have versus quitting and losing my benefits for that time and getting paid out for my PTO. I would quit right before school starts/when I run out of PTO. Has anyone done this? Would this make me at risk of getting laid off while on a PTO without a project? Would that even matter? I’m going to grad school for a career change if that makes a difference. Thanks!
