Perks of being laid off and working local: no more flight and hotel reminders, no more shitty project, less politics and back biting. After 10 years I can say I have a life now.

Lots of us are skilled at delivery but most sales books seem to focus on the pitch and closing... What are your best resources for learning to develop and nurture strong, lasting client relationships?
Traveling next week for a client after a long time. Booked a Delta Main Cabin ticket through concur. Now I am trying to upgrade to 1st using my points but the delta app shows all premium seats as unavailable. Usually it did let me change it in the past but not this time. Have Delta policies changed for ticket upgrades from Main Cabin to Comfort+ or 1st? I recall all DL Main tix were eligible for upgrade as a additional purchase option.
Do we need to edit client hours to 0 for Holiday manually? I could see 8 hours holiday is already added automatically and still project hours are showing as 8 hours. Please clarify recently joined in D usi.
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
TFW when your SM announces to the team that your manager is leaving the project while the manager is out on PTO. -_-
How do you delegate tasks to team members that are not a qualified for your projects In regards code review and code creation. I feel as though I am doing all the work on my project and all of the other contributors are either unable or unwilling to participate and I am taking on a larger work loads than I should. Do I just delegate the task and if they mess up it’s on them not me? Should I raise to management? Also how have other consultants effectively managed, other same level consultants?
Why do digital advertising strategy roles ask for writing samples? I’ve come across this requirement a couple of times now and everything I’d write as a strategist is client-specific and confidential🤷

Anyone else find it funny that we "propose" projects to our clients and if we win the work it's called an "engagement"? I've been at my client so long I guess I'm in a marriage now
Working til 11pm....not for the client but for my wife (her resume) who’s applying for a new job. Selfless I know. Never mind that she’ll double her salary and open up a path to get out of the grind.

I'm struggling to establish boundaries on my project. I get new work assigned at 6pm most days and I'm told they need done by the next day. I start at 7am everyday. Anyone have advice on what I can say to leadership? I seriously can't be working 7am to 11pm every day, my personal life/family is really taking a huge hit. I don't mind the occasional long day, but consistent 14-15 hour days aren't gonna fly anymore.
Any good recommended books on how to build a scalable product and team? I'm looking for recommendations for two areas: 1) in general laying the groundwork in a startup to have the tools and especially processes in place to scale, and 2) tactical focus on building a SaaS project. I've been promoted into a management role from Dev roots, so need to learn more PM processes to be an effective manager in day job, plus would like to start building my own SaaS solution.
Anyone witness slackers who got into companies you have no idea how? Had a coworker who does jack chit at work besides chatting on Facebook yet lands at a faang company? I guess if he brings the same work ethic he will be spit out for sure. Or maybe he just had no interest in doing project work.

I was on opt from July 2020 to July 2021. I got my h1b approved in 2020 and chose to activate it via the consular processing method. I left the US in Jul 2021 and will finally visit the embassy for stamping tomorrow. If successful, does it mean that I could get another company to apply for a h1b transfer right away? Or do I have to enter the US before the h1b transfer process can start? Thanks!

How do you (personally) weigh compensation vs. factors like good culture/team/interesting work? I am underpaid but like everything else about my job. Is this just a nagging feeling I need to dispel?
Hi all! How does my portfolio (25 years old) look? Out of my total net worth: 35% in 401K (invested in target retirement fund with employer matching), 10% in Roth IRA, and the remaining 55% in brokerage account (44% SP500, 4% on bonds, 6% in capital and income, 1% in international stocks). Thank you!
I realize I'm intolerant of other countries whenever I need to scroll to find "United States" in a webform.
Met this guy 4 weeks ago. He lives 4 hours away and has already been down to see me twice and stayed at the hotel for 2 nights each time. Pays for every date even though I offer to pay. He is awesome and I really like him! However, he was traveling for work last week so our communication went from checking in everyday to one 15 min call middle of the week. He joined this job during COVID so first time meeting his team.. he said they were out past 1am every night. Ummm? (Contd)
