I’ve created this bowl in order to connect with Project Managers & gain insight into your experiences! What’s the biggest win you’ve facilitated recently?
AWS is Looking for Senior Project Managers with 7+ years of experience, 2 must have been working with external clients & cloud needs to have been part of your scope. DM if your interested.
Any suggestions on pricing for a test project? Someone is requesting 9 LinkedIn ads. I have 5 years of copywriting experience. How much should I charge per hour? Or should I charge per ad or both? Does $80 seem too low?
Tips to shrink down large PDF files? I’ve used SmallPDF for school assignments, wondering what enterprises are using (non-cloud given client sensitive information).
Hey Sharks 🐟, What are my chances of getting into a implementation ( SAP ABAP ) project at Accenture ? I got an offer but having second thoughts !!
Client wants to hire someone you they have/ had a intimate relationship with. Can you contract around the sexual harassment issues?
Any tips for staying on top of logging hours? I'm always putting it off, then playing catch up on weeks, sometimes months at a time. (salaried employee here – but we need to input for client/project tracking purposes. It sucks.)
Joined Nagarro few weeks back, not able to understand their business model, 80% of their projects are contract based with other IT service giants, and then they say they have good client base, clients are of other IT mnc like ZS Solution, Siemens, for which they(Nagarro) works, direct business clients who seek solutions are very less in Nagarro. Can anyone more into this company give honest understanding, as this is my understanding.
The worst part about being from LA and being on a travel project is that the weather sucks no matter where they fly me to. Like what is this water coming from the sky... 😓
Is it rude to suggest to a new analyst that she needs to look more professional, e.g. don’t show up with wet hair to client meetings (even if on Zoom)? FYI I’m also a female and just trying to look out for these new hires
What are the rules on recycling creative ideas that client never bought from former agencies? Personally I’m only comfortable if the ideas originated from me personally, not my creative partner. U?
I am getting frustrated with my team's ways of working. E.g. It takes an entire day to update one line of copy because copywriters need so, and project managers will not follow up until EOD. No one asks questions or follow up. I have had multiple conversations with everyone on the team, but no one including my boss get why this is a problem. I can already tell that the clients are concerned since they made a joke out of it in every weekly status. What should I do?
So the partner tells you to watch your email all night because the deal team is known to send emails in the middle of the night and expect responses right away. Do you bill for the time that you should be sleeping? I slept in 45 min- 1 hour increments so I could check email and am incredibly exhausted, but ended up getting no work to do while checking. I’m inclined to bill at least a couple hours for it (but prob not all night) since I greatly inconvenienced myself to be available. Thoughts?
Any advice on getting out of real estate law? I want out of real estate. I’ve tried residential, hated the client work but loved the drafting aspect. And I’m now in CRE working in house, and I love it but again, I hate the client work and am also not drafting as often as I’d like. Any advice on fields I could transition to?
For questions as to why you are looking to leave your current firm.. I am looking to move because for some reason I am hand-held a lot and given simpler tasks, so I am getting bored and want more challenging / much more fast paced environment. Also kind of bored because I am on one project for a long time and I want exposure to variety of projects. Is this a fair answer or would I be seen as arrogant? Is there a better way to frame my answer?
Why does international tax think they are better than everyone else? Is it just the teams I’ve had to work and communicate with or is this the norm?
Ya’ll I had to catch myself from responding to a boomer co-worker/client who clearly wants the last word (it’s a “part-time” remote side hustle). The ask was to provide content feedback on campaign concepts for a social fundraising campaign... “this won’t work in black and white.” Ma’am, our campaign is full color. “Well what if people want to print?” *exits conversation*

What are your hotel pet peeves?
I sobbed for 3 hours today before giving a 30 minute presentation that I was perfectly prepared for and that went well. My diagnosed anxiety is too severe for this industry. I’m a high performer, Ivy League business school grad, with top competitor experience and I do good work, happily. But the intensity or high stakes or scrutiny involved with everything here wreaks havoc on my anxiety levels. The nerves are just so overwhelming. I thought I could manage this but sadly I can’t :/
Introverted consultant here... Sometimes I wonder wtf I'm doing with this job. Anyone else get that feeling?
It's funny reading complaints about work load and travel in consulting. Come on people you signed up for this... it's not like you're military in the Middle East. This is your life embrace it.

Shut down at 7pm every day to invest time in my round 2 apps. Set personal priorities and team's expectations. My 1 rating won't help me if I don't get into an MBA program

I have an upcoming conversation with a leader where I’m hoping to get future employment, what is the best way to tell someone that is looking to hire to “take a look at my resume, I’ll email it to you” without being too forward?
