lolol. Ok so I find this funny, many wouldn't and I need to know if anyone batted an eye while you stifled your laugh...I feel like the YMCA wouldn't be a fan of his comment, like as an organization hahah

What do you do?? Please tell us more. I once had someone, not in a work scenario, say "Nice to see you on your flip side" when we were in a locker. They were in fact referring to the other side of my body.

Also hi AM1 haha

Oh my gosh. Hahaha. What happened next? Tell us more lol

You had me in the first half, I'm not gonna lie. I almost thought that you were about to tell us a story of how you got harassed. Glad to know it was nothing like that hahaha!

Kind of a dad joke but funny nonetheless. Hahah can't believe you are friends with the boss

Shocks. I think I need to learn how to appreciate dad jokes more. Lol. I didn't get it at first. Haha

I’m new to the consulting world coming from tech as direct admit PPMD. Female, mostly work from home, although I plan to go into the office 1-2x per week plus coffee/drink networking with colleagues and clients. Tech is casual and I typically wear jeans with a nice top, sometimes blazer, and boots/heels. Based on what I’ve seen in Fishbowl (taking this all with a grain of salt) I may need to step it up. Thoughts? Recommendations?

Hi all,

In the summer of 2021 I finished my BBA and started working since then. As a personal achievement, I would like to do a master's degree as well (although I am not sure in what). Since master's degrees are in general quite an expensive step to take, I was thinking of asking my company to sponsor me.

When it comes to trainings my company reimburses them, but I have to pay upfront. What are you experiences with sponsoring/masters while working? And do you have any tips?

Cheers

Pay4performance: Big upside potential, tons of risks.

Project pricing: Cloak for billable hours. You have to estimate project cost with something.

Who’s thought of a better approach??? Genuinely curious if there is one.
